What is Summer Smart Summer Fun?

In 2013, a group of Valpo faculty and local teachers – led by the late Dr. Alan Bloom, created this academic summer camp for school-aged kids. Our dream was to create a space for teachers and kids to have fun, be creative, and learn about a broad range of topics. During camp, elementary and middle school campers create special projects, science experiments, and original stories to take home and share with parents and friends.

Our dedicated teachers and staff aim to inspire children to learn about the world in an environment full of fun and exploration. Every year, we encourage teachers to create camp courses around topics that inspire them. Campers enjoy the fun and creative activities for two weeks each year!
