Campers will be given a challenge to complete. In teams, students will learn the importance of collaboration and communication while appreciating the unique strengths of their teammates.
From concept to a final LEGO® build, participants will be presented with intermittent challenges that will force them to pivot and adapt to external forces.

The Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute will be hosting a series of summer camps for grades 4-8th and 11-12th.  If a student falls between grades, please select the camp most appropriate for them.

Our institute prides itself in preparing youth to be changemakers and problem solvers by providing them opportunities to learn about their own strengths and talents while learning the importance of collaboration and teamwork.  Camps are designed for students who like to think with their hands and play outside of the box while being challenged.

All camps will be held at the ELI Launch Pad, located in the Oakwood Building, Room 133 on the Ball State campus. Snacks and lunch will be provided daily. 

Campers will take breaks from the indoors to enjoy some fun outside (weather permitting).

Cost: $50 (scholarships available)

Space is limited* so register early:   REGISTER

*Note: All camps must have a minimum of 10 participants. A decision will be made no later than June 30th if there aren’t enough registrations to host the camp.


A limited number of scholarships that reduce the cost of the camp are available. Contact Candy Dodd for more information and details about how to apply for a scholarship.
