Blueprint4SummerSTL selected Ranken as a TOP 20 Camp in 2015!

Each year, Ranken hosts two weeks of fun and learning at the annual Ranken Adventure Academy, with camps at both our St. Louis Campus and our Wentzville location! This is a fun and exciting way for students to learn about technology and the study and career options available to them. The cost of the camps is $95 per camper for an entire week of fun!

Each camp has incorporated activities for the students to design, create and work with hands-on projects. Most of the courses include unique projects that the students will be able to take home. The camps range from building go-karts to designing and manufacturing jewelry.
