Westminster Summer Camps Give Youth a Chance to "Experience the West"
Camps offer a variety of activities for youth (grades 1-12)
SALT LAKE CITY – From aviation, to dinosaurs, to musical theatre and more, Westminster is guaranteed to have a summer camp for students of all ages, abilities and interests.
Beginning in June 2008, the college will offer a variety of camps for K-12 students. These “Experience the West” camps will offer fun, interactive learning experiences and allow students to get a taste of college campus life. The camps will run with varying dates and durations from June to August 2008. Many of the camps will also have a “sleep away” experience for students who wish to stay overnight in Westminster’s residential halls.
