Doane Campus
Already attended a middle school algae camp? This camp will build on past experiments and analysis!

Camp is hosted by the lab of Dr. Brad Elder of Doane College, who has established a small algal biology research group that develops algal research experiences. Doane is a nationally recognized college in Crete, Nebraska offering undergraduate and graduate programs. Campers will enjoy 300-acres of lush grounds, ponds, winding paths, historical buildings and new facilities.

Admire the swans at Doane Lake (from a distance because they can be moody) and experience the beautiful camps and vibrancy of student life.
