SALT LAKE CITY– There will definitely be no shortage of exciting activities to choose from this season as Westminster College announces its summer “College-Experience” and youth camp line-up. Students K-12 will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of camps, from kicking soccer balls to exploring Great Salt Lake.
Students can choose from four types of Westminster’s summer camps:
Camp Great Salt Lake (July 12-14): This camp is the newest addition to the summer listing. Westminster’s Great Salt Lake Institute invites campers to spend a few days as a scientist examining the extreme environment of the Lake. The camp will help students answer questions like: How does the lake harness sunlight? What lab techniques can we use to detect life? Do the brine shrimp really look like Sea Monkeys? The camp is open to 15 high school juniors and seniors.
College Experience Camps (July 12-18): These interactive, hands-on academic camps are taught by Westminster’s first-rate faculty to give high school students a true taste of college life. Participants will live on campus and learn more about themselves and meet other students with similar interest. Students can also earn college credit upon completion of the camp. These camps are limited to high school students. Camps include:
- Writing Your World Camp
- Robotics Camp
- Aviation Camp
- Money 101 Camp
Writing Your World Camp
AWE+SUM Camps (July 6-8): Exclusively for girls entering the 8th grade this fall. Students will spend three fun-filled days on the beautiful Westminster College campus and discover just how fun and cool math and science can be! In addition to the workshops, campers will play volleyball, take hikes by the creek and enjoy meals in the student center. Several Westminster female math and science faculty and students will assist with the workshops. In the residential halls, there will be two girls per room and several adult counselors for close supervision. Scholarships are available.
Athletic Camps (Varied Dates): These camps offer students a variety of sports to choose from and are open to grades 1-12. From soccer to volleyball, young athletes will receive training and advice from Westminster athletics coaches and players. Athletic camps include boys and girls’ basketball, girls’ soccer and volleyball, and boys’ lacrosse. Both overnight and day camp options are available.
