Chicago Area Mensa Youth Information

Youth Facebook Group

Hi everyone,

If you’re a CAM youth member, a parent of a CAM youth member, or a CAM member with youth family members, you might be interested in our new Chicago Area Mensa Youth Facebook group.

Membership is limited to parents of CAM youth members and CAM members with youth family members. (And youth members old enough to have Facebook accounts.) Only those who answer all the required questions (including a membership number) will be able to join.

The Facebook group is a forum for conversation about gifted youth, activities, and impromptu get-togethers. Join it and keep track of what’s going on. We’ll still be emailing weekly reminders of all events, of course, as well as including them in ChiMe, the monthly events on this website, and Meetup!
