Students exploring the water in the Great Salt Lake Website
Camp Great Salt Lake 2014

 

We are currently accepting applications for Camp Great Salt Lake 2014. Spend the week with us and see what it's like to be a student studying science at Westminster College. You'll gather samples out at the lake (paddle boarding will definitely be involved) and analyze the lake's salty waters in the lab. In addition this year, in collaboration with the Utah Museum of Fine Arts there will be an art project with a scientific perspective at the iconic Spiral Jetty. Other perks will include field trips to the Tracy Aviary and the Natural History Museum of Utah and full access to the Fitness Center (HWAC) complete with a pool, gym and climbing wall. The camp will culminate in a showcase of student projects and research.

Where: Westminster College

Who: High School Students (15-18 years old) and High School Teachers
