Event description


About The Camp

“Emulsify” your creativity with chemistry by spending a week studying, developing, and testing personal care products such as lip balm, lotion, deodorant and soap. Examine ingredients and properties of matter similar to professional cosmetic chemists. Consider if and how changing ingredients in personal products can make a healthier product for you and the environment.


  • Monday-Friday 9:00am-3:30pm

Camp Details

Please review the particulars below and notify us if you have any questions.

Camp Fees and Payment: This year, we're introducing a "pay what you can" policy for our 2017 camps. We understand financial hardship and believe no child should be denied a great summer experience because of it. While completing Eventbrite registration, enter whatever amount you feel is fair. Suggested value of our camps is $90 for full day/week-long, $50 for half-day/week-long, and $20 for single day, but if you cannot afford registration this year, we understand. No need to explain.

Registration guidelines: Applicants must be girls who will be in grades 6-9 during the 2017-2018 academic year and who have never attended Cosmetic Chemistry before. Registration is competitive and first-come, first-served. Registration will close on June 2nd, 2017. If you are paying by check or cash, payment is due to the Coeur d'Alene Harbor Center no later than close of registration, June 2nd, 2017 and can be mailed or delivered to: University of Idaho CDA, c/o Cosmetic Chemistry, 1031 N. Academic Way, CDA, ID 83814.

Campers are committing to attend the full length of the camp, June 19-23 from 9:00 am-3:30 pm. If your camper cannot attend one or more days, we suggest attending next year as the camp experience is reliant on full-time attendance. If for some reason your registered camper won't be able to attend the camp, please notify UICDA as soon as possible so that we may admit a waitlisted camper. Refunds cannot be processed after the registration deadline.

Parents: Plan for yourself or a proxy to check your camper in or out each day of camp. Campers can be checked in no earlier than 30 minutes before camp and checked out no later than 30 minutes after camp.

For your child to attend, you must sign and return a standard camp liability waiver that will be sent to you via e-mail. This waiver must be received by UICDA no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 16, 2017.

Meals and snacks: Camp includes snacks and parents must send campers with a brown bag lunch. At this time, we cannot accommodate dietary restrictions. If your camper has an allergy that prevents them from eating snacks provided, please be sure to send them with a snack as well. Snack options will consist of: string cheese, fruit, or granola bar. Please make sure your camper knows what they can or cannot consume as we cannot guarantee non-exposure to allergens.

Special Accomodations: If your camper has special needs and requires a special needs accommodation, please email detailing their needs before the camp so we may discuss.

Behavior Guidelines: University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene's Dig'nIT summer camps have a strict no-tolerance policy with regard to bullying or disruptive behavior and we are proud to say we've never had an incident in our camps. If bullying or behavioral issues occur, the instigator's parent/guardian will be contacted immediately for pick up.


How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Email or call Juli Anderson at, 208-667-2588.

My camper has attended Cosmetic Chemistry Camp before-- can they attend again?

In order to provide the Cosmetic Chemistry Camp experience to as many students as possible, we are limiting the registration to first-time campers only. There are several other camps your child might be interested in, however, including JAVA Coding Camp, AFA CyberCamp, Girls Coding Camp, and the new Apple Camp. Go to to learn more!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You do not have to bring a printed confirmation with you. Save a tree!

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

No. If your camper is suddenly not able to attend, notify us as soon as possible so we may contact a waitlisted registrant.

What's the refund policy?

Refunds can be issued up to the registration deadline. Contact Juli Anderson, for more info should you need a refund. Refunds cannot be processed after the registration deadline.
