Summer 2018 camp topics include filmmaking and sound design, 3D engineering, lasers, math, photography, art, astronomy and a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) maker camp. Lake County law enforcement and fire science professionals are partnering with CLC to offer two new career exploration camps. Innovative, hands-on activities are designed to give students an opportunity to experience firefighting or the law enforcement areas of police, corrections, the courts and probation.

Cost of each camp ranges from $175 to $195, and a limited number of partial scholarships are available. Visit for camp topics, schedules as well as registration and scholarship forms. To register, contact Explore Camps at (847) 543-2615 or Several camps have already sold out.
