InZone cookingFrom launching rockets and designing computer games to culinary competitions and exploring the outdoors, Harper College’s InZone summer enrichment and sports camp has created memorable summers for children ages 8 to 14 for more than a decade.

This summer will be no different as familiar favorites return, such as robot wars, fashion design, film acting camp and the Chicago Cubs Baseball Camp, while plenty of new offerings enter the mix.

“Our classes offer a range of opportunities, with something for everyone,” Continuing Education Youth Program Coordinator Kevin Hahn says. “It’s a chance to develop new interests or strengthen your existing skills.”

Between June 6 and August 12, InZone will run two one-week and four two-week sessions. The camp is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, with morning and afternoon classes, lunch options and before/after care available. The program also boasts an 8-to-1 student to adult ratio and a safe environment with a professional nurse on site to tend to all campers.

More than 150 courses will be offered in total, with programs in arts, athletics, business, crafts, culinary arts, daInZone Build Your Own Electric Guitarnce, math, music, science, technology, world languages and writing.

In addition to its variety, Hahn said InZone stands apart because of the quality of instruction students receive. Classes are run by professionals and experts in their fields, and there’s a focused curriculum with a set of outcomes.

"These are fun, safe programs in the same facilities that college kids use,” Hahn said.
