Our Programs

We host programs for individual signups alongside our group programs. Whether your participant is looking for recreational activities, a summer program, or you have Scouts looking to earn merit badges, we have you covered!

On weekends and in the summer months, the IROEC features recreational summer camp activities, science camps and programs designed to meet the needs of youth oriented non-profit organizations.

For our Scouts we are excited to offer merit badge programs, stem nova awards and Cub Scout resident camp. Bring your Scouts to our programs to further the legacy of the Boy Scouts of America!

Adventures in STEM Day Camp

The Adventures in STEM Day Camp is designed to get campers engaged in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, while also incorporating Leadership, and Critical Thinking. Our Day Camp allows campers a hands-on opportunity to explore a variety of activities while supervised by our trained and passionate staff.

Academic activities will include: nature hikes, mining, sustainability, wacky science, and other academic rotations.

Not forgetting the fun of camp, attendees will also experience: zip line rides, archery, team building, time in the pool and water slide area, and of course arts and crafts!
