An Independent School • Grades 5-12

Investigative Learning Camp

A STEAM-focused camp for students from any school entering grades 5-8.

Exploration and play lead to serious learning at Lakeside's Investigative Learning Camp. Students entering grades 5-8 from any school split their day between morning academic classes (in science, technology, engineering, writing, and art) and organized afternoon activities.

Campers are taught by dynamic and fun middle-school teachers, and supported by a diverse group of camp counselors who share campers’ passion for learning.

Students can register for one or two sessions. Each session lasts two weeks, and campers immerse themselves in new topics each week.

Tuition: $1,040 per two-week session. Extended care (until 6:00 p.m.) is available at an additional cost. Snacks, camp t-shirts, and camp water bottles are provided. Students should bring their own lunches.

Financial aid is available.
