The challenge with coordinating an academic camp is picking a venue that will immediately set the stage for learning. Spaces have to include all of the features you need to accomplish your specific goals for your group. But they also have to be flexible enough to accommodate your group’s individuality. And to keep your group engaged and motivated, they also have to be fun! Our Top Picks for North American Venues for Academic Camps do all this and more.
One of our Top Picks is Loyola University Chicago. With its two picturesque campuses in the beautiful city of Chicago, Loyola is truly the premier academic camp facility in the city. Your guests will truly be inspired upon arrival when they learn that Loyola has many “green” initiatives – including more green roofs than any other campus in the Midwest. Loyola also has 8 LEED certified buildings, green housing options, a sustainable catering menu and a green café for hosting. Loyola offers year-round meeting spaces, housing accommodations and gourmet catering for up to 700 guests. There are over 100 meeting and event rooms including large classrooms able to accommodate 200 students. State of the art technology is also included with an optional on-site technician available for additional peace of mind.
The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio is another one of our Top Picks because first, we see how attendees will be wowed by its beautiful architecture and historic charm. But we also know event coordinators will be wowed by its modern-day amenities. The College of Wooster boasts state-of-the-art classrooms, theater, meeting rooms, and auditoriums inside, as well as breathtaking spaces outdoors. We also love the many activities available for event coordinators to include in their itineraries: Scot Lanes, eight bowling alleys, eight pool tables and an arcade ropes course. These activities are also perfect for your attendees to wind down during camp.
Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, Quebec is another one of our Top Picks because of its unique surroundings and of course, its history. Founded in 1843, the Bishop’s University 500-acre campus is located near the St-Francis and Massawippi rivers. Its surroundings are truly magnificent. And it is also conveniently located ten minutes from the vibrant downtown of Sherbrooke. Another reason why Bishop’s University Sherbrooke Quebec made our top pick is because of the unique design of its campus’ layout. It is an actual micro-village completely surrounded by nature with a full restaurant and catering services. Impressive sports facilities and educational activities also abound.
