About Youth Programs at Western
Western Washington University has been inspiring youth in grades K-12 through enrichment opportunities for over 30 years. Offering a broad range of programming from scientific exploration in specialized labs to recreational activities on Lake Whatcom, Western’s Youth Programs strives to provide quality learning experiences that lead to personal growth.
Students can choose from full-day camps, half-day courses, or intensive one-time sessions to pursue their educational discovery and creative expression. Each Youth Program offering is taught by top quality educators in a hands-on, interactive learning environment that encourages inquiry by the student.
In addition to enrichment, Western’s Youth Programs encourages students on their path to higher education. With activities held on a college campus, students get to explore their educational passions in a safe and lively atmosphere as they gain first-hand experience of how college could impact their future.
