The Shawnee State University Center for Lifelong Learning invites course proposals for Cub Camp 2022, a 4-day summer enrichment program at Shawnee State University.

We are searching for teachers and others who have earned at least a Bachelor’s Degree (however, exceptions can be made) and who are interested in taking a creative approach to enrichment education. We would like to offer courses which will be exciting, stimulating, and challenging for student attendees who have just completed PreK-8th Grade. We hope you are interested in this opportunity.
