Summer Camp Interest Form

Join us on the South Dakota Mines campus for our STEM summer camps! Our summer camps offer a fun intro to science and engineering. These pre-college experiences are designed to expose students to how science works in the real world by providing exciting hands-on experiences. Day camps are hosted by some of our prestigious faculty whose expertise gives campers a glimpse into STEM careers and gets them excited about their education. Campers participate in on-campus activities and field trips throughout the day. From out of town? Take this opportunity to have a fun family vacation in the Black Hills. Black Hills & Badlands and Visit Rapid City are great planning resources. We offer limited on-campus lodging you can find more information here, use this link to request lodging.
