More than 100 high school students from Ohio and around the country spent a week on campus in June, immersed in hands-on activities related to their academic interests and Malone student life traditions.

Three new camps launched their inaugural year (Applied and Scientific Psychology Camp, Theatre Camp, and Worship Music Camp) in addition to the returning camps from last year. Partnerships with Inspiring Minds (Warren, Ohio) and the Institute for College Preparation (Georgetown University) were formed to increase access and college readiness... and the week closed with praise from campers and faculty alike:

“Our first year for Psychology Camp was such a gratifying experience. During check-out, one camper told me ‘I’m in no hurry to get out of here’—I think that’s a great sign!”

--Eb de Oliveira, professor of psychology

 “I am so glad we sent my son, Christian, to Theatre Camp this year. He hasn’t stopped talking about the stage combat and improv workshops, and thoroughly enjoyed their field trip to see 'The Phantom of the Opera' at Playhouse Square.”

--Kelly Sanko, parent of Christian

 “This was the third year for Zoo and Wildlife Biology Camp, and I’m thrilled to see how much it has grown. We increased the capacity of our camp to accommodate a couple of additional students, and it was great to watch the larger group bond during the course of the week.”

-- Jason Courter, assistant professor of biology

“Thank you for making my week at Malone so much fun! I love that Malone students get to work with animals without leaving campus, and they get to use the animal collection to educate the public about care for the environment. Such awesome resources!”

-- Peter Crawford, Zoo Camp participant from Chicago
