NIACC Mind Mania Camps
Mind Mania is the best week of your summer. Mind Mania camp will run from June 17th through June 21st.
Mind Mania takes the best part of every camp and rolls them into one. NIACC’s Mind Mania day camp offers campers the chance to exercise their minds in the morning and their energy in the afternoon. Kids entering grades 3-7 can find out exactly what the excitement is this summer when they attend the week-long camp, June 17th-21nd. Camp will run every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and kids will explore areas like sports nature, forensics, creative writing, computers, theater, and more! Plus our instructors are top of the line from BA’s to PhD’s…NIACC has it all.
Join in on all the fun this summer and get in on Mind Mania! Following a morning of fun and learning, campers will break for lunch with entrees such as cheeseburgers, pizza, spaghetti, all-beef hot dogs, and chicken nuggets. In the afternoon the fun continues with high-energy activities.
Your camper will enroll in only one morning session and one afternoon session. That means every camper will choose one class to take all week long for the morning and one class to take all week long for the afternoon session. Space is limited so sign up today.
Reminder: Kickoff on Monday at 9:00 a.m. and Closing on Friday at 2:45 p.m. will both be held in the Activity Center. Pickup and drop off are in front of the North-Iowa Auditorium all other days and times.
