USI Summer Enrichment Camp to begin May 31

0

The University of Southern Indiana Summer Enrichment Camp (SEC) will be offered to children entering kindergarten through grade six (based on the grade they will enter in Fall 2023). The camp will begin on May 31 and will run through July 28. Camp opens daily at 7 a.m. and closes at 5:30 p.m.

SEC offers an environment encouraging children to develop their capabilities and interests at their own pace based on individual needs. The program recognizes the uniqueness of children and provides positive encouragement for their continued growth while having fun.

This year’s SEC activities will include crafts, swimming, games, on-site opportunities (utilizing the entire campus) and more. Enrichment experiences will be offered in art, science, fitness, technology and other interests staff bring to camp. Every activity will be tied to a weekly theme communicated to families of students participating in the camp. Four field trips will also take place over the course of the summer.

Full-time and part-time spaces are available, but priority will be given to families requiring full-time, full-summer care. Early enrollment was offered to 2023 campers last fall, so several spots have already been filled.

Total SEC fees for all USI employees and students are:

  • Full-time (Monday-Friday): $1,482.33
  • Part-time (three days/week): $1,116.04
  • Part-time (two days/week): $815.04

Total SEC fees for community members (non-USI employees) are:

  • Full-time (Monday-Friday): $1584.56
  • Part-time (three days/week): $1,167.80
  • Part-time (two days/week): $866.38

Fees include all costs except for lunches (parents send) and the cost of a life jacket for swimming (if needed).

A $60 pre-enrollment fee (per child) is required and can be paid online.
