Apply for YNS Summer Programs January 1, 2017!

Young Nebraska Scientists Camps are using a new platform to facilitate our application process.  When you go to apply, you will be asked to create a log in.  Please keep the following information in mind as you create your log in!

          1.  Use parental information for the initial log-in.  The e-mail that you use to log-in, is the e-mail that will be used for correspondence from Lindsey Moore, Executive Camp Director.  Student information will be collected through the application process. 

          2.  Grade standings:  We place students based on their grade level at the time they are filling out the application.   So it is the Spring semester of 2017, and your student is an 8th grader, they will attend our middle school camps.  There are no exceptions to the grade level assignments. 

          3.  After the initial application, camp selection notifications will be sent out around May 1, 2017.  These selections will include a link to return to this platform to fill out all the camp enrollment forms.
