Summer Opportunities

I-NOMA Project Pipeline summer camp

Does your child want to expand upon their interest in technology and construction?

I-NOMA (Illinois Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects) hosts a camp where students are guided through professional architectural processes and give students the opportunity to design projects. 

There is a fee, however, our District has been lucky enough to be awarded with free scholarships to this camp. 

For more information on the program CLICK HERE or contact mtristan@cicd99.edu

WSSRA Summer Day Camp program

During June and July, several of our students and children from neighboring communities play sports and board games along with other exercise and educational programs.

Additionally, campers participate in outside field trips.

Unity Junior High has been a proud host for the last 8 years.
