Registration for North Central College’s 2016 Summer Camps and Workshops opens Monday, Feb. 15. Among the many opportunities are summer camps for children and adults, ranging from athletics and performing arts to academics and faith-based.

Camps begin near the end of May and run through July and early August. For a complete list of North Central College summer camps, visit or call 630-637-5560 to learn more. Online registration is easy and convenient. In-person registration is welcome, too; stop by the Conference Services, Camps and Noncredit Programs office at 440 S. Brainard St., Naperville.

This year, 10 new camp offerings will make their debut, including triathlon camps, computer programming for girls, and two faith-based offerings with one focusing on the arts. They complement the popular athletic, academic, creative arts and special interest camps. Some camps last several days and include meals, while some workshops may last a few hours. Fees vary depending on the length and type of camp or workshop.

For athletes, North Central College offers summer camps in baseball, basketball, soccer, softball, pole vault, cross country, track and field, volleyball, triathlon, wrestling and swimming. Some camps focus on developing advanced skills, while others emphasize building knowledge and fundamentals of the sport. Campers will learn from quality instructors and head coaches from the North Central College community.

Other popular camps include the WONC radio workshop, musical theatre for both junior and high schoolers, and classes in creative writing, game programing, video production, photography, Japanese language and culture, and more.
