LOWELL - Getting the latest information about summer camps at the University of Massachusetts Lowell is as easy as logging onto the internet.

The University's website, www.uml.edu/summercamps/, offers up-to-date information on a variety of camps for youth, ranging from sports activities to designing electronic creations, and contact information for those interested in signing up. 

            Athletic camps include the National Youth Sports Program, free for eligible Lowell youth, and sports camps in basketball, baseball, softball, ice hockey, field hockey, soccer and volleyball.  For kids not interested in sports fare, the popular Design Camps offer opportunities to build robots, prop-driven planes, electric guitars and other devices in nine different areas for middle and high school students.  And, students who want to fine-tune their musical skills can participate in the summer band camp. 

The UMass Lowell website also includes information about summer offerings at the Tsongas Industrial History Center, a collaboration between the University and the Lowell National Historical Park, which enables campers to explore several national parks, build a canal system, investigate water pollution, weave cloth on a four-harness loom and other activities. 

Details on other camps will be added to the website as information becomes available. Those without internet access can call 978-934-3224 to receive printed materials.
