Program Overview

General Information

Camp Illumina is an immersive ten-day research workshop for students in grades 7-10. The research workshop features daily classes and research meetings, individualized small-group research project design, an opportunity for campers to collaboratively write & present research findings under the guidance of internationally recognized student researchers and writers, and Camp Illumina exclusive events including colloquium talks from undergraduate researchers.

Cost: Thanks to generous donations from students and parents, there is no cost to attend the 2021-22 Winter Session Camp Illumina.

Due to the intensive nature of the program, we are unable to accommodate prospective students who will need to regularly miss classes and research meetings. We recommend that students with significant schedule conflicts consider signing up for our fall and spring courses.

*Interested students that are younger and older than our suggested age range may contact us through email ( We will determine eligibility on a case-by-case basis.

Registration for Camp Illumina is currently closed.
