Summer Exploration Camps

Do you like to fix things, make things, or understand how things work by taking them apart? Wouldn’t it be great if you could earn college credit while having fun exploring your passion? If you’re in high school, the Summer Exploration Camps are the perfect opportunity to earn college credit and have fun.

Each of the Harrisburg University Summer Exploration Camps takes a unique look at a field of science or technology, or the business of science and technology. While learning is the key goal for these day camps, you will be surprised how much fun you can have letting your imagination run wild with the potential inventions, technologies, or scientific issues you can explore.

These camps are for incoming high school students through high school seniors (unless otherwise designated). Registration for these camps closes 7 calendar days before the start of the camp.
