SUMMER ACADEMY SAMPLE OFFERINGS

We offered a more modest line-up of in-person and virtual options for summer 2021 due to the pandemic, but we hope to resume in-person academies in summer 2022. To get an idea of the type of academies we offer in the summer months, check out the descriptions below.

SPONSORS

CINSAM camp and academy fees remain low due in large part to sponsorship from Ashland. Additionally, this sponsorship allows CINSAM to offer scholarships to low-income students who meet the requirements for the "Free & Reduced Meal" programs in KY, IN and OH. Parents have the option to apply for a scholarship during registration.

Registration for 2020 academies will open in February 2020.
