Unity — Is your student interested in getting a jump-start on college or tuning up his or her acting skills? Is he or she a budding gardener or chef, interested in building a sustainable future while having fun and making new friends? Unity College has a summer camp that delivers all Maine has to offer.
Each of the six educational summer programs is held on the college’s wooded 225-acre campus, overlooking Unity Pond. Many camps will journey off campus to experience the splendor of a Maine summer.
“Unity College summer camps are geared toward students who want to explore subjects they may want to study in college, or just see what excites them,” said Unity College President Dr. Melik Peter Khoury.
“Whether it’s understanding ocean ecology, North Woods law enforcement, or the geology of Maine, Unity College summer camps are a great way to meet faculty, engage, explore, make friends, and have fun.”
Local residents can attend most of the Unity College camps at the reduced fee of $450, which pays for tuition and lunch but not lodging, with the same take-home premiums of residential campers.
Sign up before May 1 and get $50 off any Unity College residential camp. The college camps are:
