    High School Renewable Energy Camp

    Canceled for 2020

    Hamline has made the difficult decision to cancel all high school summer camps, including the Renewable Energy Camp, to keep you and our community safe. We're just as disappointed as you are, so we encourage you to apply again next year! 

    If you've already registered, we'll contact you via email.
