EduCamp is more than just a regular overnight camp. The faculty, staff, student workers, and campers are all one big family. Even though we host EduCamp each year for high school students, we all leave the camp with something; from a renewed passion for education to confirmation that our campers are pursuing the right career for them. I’m looking forward to what EduCamp 2024 has in store!”
