Science camp ~ June 30, 2017 UWL Campus News

Another successful year for girls’, boys’ overnight camps.

Boys' Science Exploration Camp

This camp encourages boys' interests in science and math by giving them hands-on learning and activities in an environment that is supportive, enriching and—most importantly—fun! The boys work with UW-La Crosse faculty and staff who encourage experimentation, investigation and involvement in the fields of math and science.

  • hands-on experiments
  • your choice of nine workshops
  • taught by university faculty and staff
  • full campus experience with overnight stay

In addition to the activities, the boys experience a college campus, an overnight stay in a residence hall, campus meals, and social activities with peer students, university student assistants and faculty.
