A New World in a Week

Summer camps at ISI have something to offer every student, whether they come from ISI, another school in Indiana, or a city on the other side of the globe. The camps will be held on the beautiful, wooded 65-acre campus on Michigan Road.

From immersive art classes and French and Spanish cooking to sports and cultural experiences and SAT prep (for those in the middle and upper grades), summer camps at ISI provide the chance to play hard, keep learning, and make lifelong friends. It’s a safe and nurturing atmosphere based around ISI’s own philosophies.
