Face-to-face STEAM Camp Cancelled for 2020

Thank you for your continued support of GSU’s Summer STEAM Camp program. We hope that you, your family and friends are well.

To our friends and colleagues who find themselves on the front lines of the COVID-19 epidemic, we thank you and hope you know how much we appreciate what you do for all of us every day.

The leadership of Governors State University has made the difficult and carefully considered decision to cancel campus face-to-face scheduled activities through August 1, 2020, including all university sponsored camps and activities.

While we are extremely disappointed that we will not be able to operate STEAM Camp as we had intended this year, we are extremely conscious of the opportunity that STEAM Camp provides for our campers to learn and have meaningful experiences, and will continue to work towards offering a few well-designed virtual units at no cost to our community. Please watch for additional information as we get closer to July.

For those families who paid for one or more camp sessions in the 2020 season, please watch for a full refund (note that university operations will be slower than normal due to COVID-19 in-office staffing levels).

Please know that we wish you and your family all the best and look forward to some no-cost virtual activities this year, and to seeing all our friends in 2021.

Best wishes,

Your friends at Governors State University
