Middle School Adventure Camp

7th and 8th Graders

With the unsettled nature of the months ahead caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, the University has made the difficult decision to cancel 2020 LSSU Summer Camps. We are sorry to do this – we look forward to hosting our young Lakers every summer. Because we keep the safety and well-being of all Lakers at the forefront of our work, we believe this is the best action to take.

Many of you have entrusted your students to our camps in the past, for which we are grateful. We will get through this difficult time and resume these exciting programs. If you have questions, please email deanofstudentaffairs@lssu.edu.
