If you’re looking for fun activities for your child this summer, The LIFT Center will again offer summer camps for elementary and middle school students beginning in June. Registration is open to any child in those age groups, and enrollment in Abilene ISD is not required.

The registration fee for the Maker Space Camp is $40, while the fee for the other two camps is $75 apiece. Lunch will be provided for campers at all three camps. Abilene ISD students who qualify for free and reduced lunch will have the fee reduced.

Three camps will be offered:
