What to Bring: Due to food allergies and your child’s individual preferences, we are asking that parents pack a morning snack and a lunch for their child each day of the camp. Please be sure to clearly mark your child’s name on his or her lunch box/bag.  Campers also bring their own backpack, pencil and notebook.  We also ask parents to bring some math books and reading materials that would be appropriate for their children’s level.  If not, the teacher will provide some photocopies of some materials.

Parking: Meters are available.  IUPUI Parking Services has visitor spaces on campus.  Please visit here for detailed information on locations and price.  For the most part, although limited, meter parking has been adequate although there are a few lots that are undergoing construction.

Additional Information: The camp is held on the IUPUI Campus (SL Lower Level and LD room 137 Buildings). Lunch is in the Campus Center on the 2nd floor.
