ICC's summer engineering camp can creatively make use of a wide variety of items for student project work. Many of these items may be found as part of your spring cleaning and decluttering. We can also use other items such as snack items, first aid items, recreational equipment, cash donations, and more. Although some of our camp activities may be scaled back slightly due to the extra precautions surrounding COVID-19, we are happy to take any donations that can be used this year or in future camps.
