LOWELL - Whether your child wants to spend a week designing a remote-controlled submarine, indulging in a favorite sport or perfecting a musical talent, the University of Massachusetts Lowell offers summer programs for all interests.

            Spaces are filling up fast for many UMass Lowell summer camps; so prospective campers are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.

The two-dozen camps cover a wide range of educational, athletic and recreational opportunities for children and teenagers, including National Youth Sports Program, summer band and success strategies for incoming college freshmen.  The UMass Lowell Riverhawks offer day camps in a variety of sports including, baseball, basketball, field hockey, ice hockey, soccer, softball, and volleyball.

There also still are openings in some of the College of Engineering's popular Design Camps, which offer fun, hands-on workshops for students in grades 5 to 10.  In addition, Great Explorations Summer Day enables children to experience industrial history by weaving cloth, building a canal system or working the line like a 19th century "mill girl," among other activities. It is run by the Tsongas Industrial History Center, a collaboration between UMass Lowell and the Lowell National Historical Park.

Complete information and contact numbers for the summer camps are listed on the website: www.uml.edu/summercamps or call 978-934-3224 to receive a mailing.
