There will be a $5 fee for the swimming trip that can be paid at registration. Resident campers may also have access to residence hall vending machines during some evenings before bed. On Friday of the camp, everyone will also have the opportunity to visit one of our local campus shops to purchase ISU souvenirs and other items.

Summer 2018 meal rates are $6.15 per breakfast, $8.65 per lunch, and $10.00 per dinner. If you'd like to purchase a specific meal for the entire week, the rates are $36.90 for 6 breakfasts (Monday-Saturday) or $50.00 for 5 dinners (Monday-Friday).
