After much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel ImpactU for 2020 due to current and potential COVID-19 restrictions. At this time, we plan to have ImpactU return better than ever in the summer of 2021. Meanwhile, we are exploring several options to connect virtually with those who would have attended our summer camps. Stay tuned to our Visit page for updates.

Join us in the summer for one (or two) residential high school camps that focus on a variety of content areas. Experienced faculty and talented college students will be staffing the camps where you will get a five-day, college-type experience that includes all food, lodging, supplies, evening activities and hands-on exploration of an academic area in the context of a Christian community.
