Register now for K-12 summer camps at Wayne State University, scholarships available

Registration for Wayne State University’s K-12 summer camps is now open, and to make browsing, selecting and registering for camps easier than ever, WSU Enrollment Management has launched a new website: k-12.wayne.edu. More than 90 programs are available, ranging from week-long day camps to overnight camps, with focus areas including music, dance, athletics, career preparation, STEM, entrepreneurship, CPR, cyber security, forensics and more.

“Wayne State’s robust summer camp programs provide great opportunities for local children to expand their horizons and spend time on our beautiful campus,” said Provost Keith Whitfield. “Our faculty and staff instructors look forward to hosting these camps all year, and we’re pleased to see that excitement around our programs continues to grow within the community.” 

For the first time, Wayne State will offer scholarships to cover the full cost of STEM-related camps for students who qualify for free or reduced lunch. The C&IT Summer Engagement scholarships were made possible by WSU’s Computing & Information Technology, under the leadership of Daren Hubbard, associate vice president and chief information officer for C&IT.

“Thanks to the leadership of Daren Hubbard and his team, we’re able to offer these awards to help Detroit area students who are interested in STEM,” said Dawn Medley, associate vice president of enrollment management. “As a research institution committed to access, we’re excited to be able to offer these scholarships so that even more students can benefit from our enrichment programs.”

Additional scholarships are available for engineering-related camps through the College of Engineering and K-12 outreach partners.

Most programs are week-long day camps, hosted at WSU’s Midtown campus. There are also overnight camp options, where students reside in WSU’s student housing for the duration of the program. Some camps are free, but prices vary by program.

The new K-12 summer camp website provides a one-stop shop for students and their parents to browse and search for programs. The site is powered by InfoReady, which offers a sleek, user-friendly design and the ability to search for programs based on age, interest, duration, schedule or price.

“Students and parents alike can be overwhelmed with information and difficult decisions,” said Chloe Lundine, enrollment management project manager. “Our new website makes the summer camp experience easy. Whether you come to the site knowing exactly what you’re looking for, or simply to browse, you’re sure to find a camp that will spark your interest.”

Camps will fill up quickly, so register today!
