Wayne State University is once again offering a diverse lineup of educational opportunities for K-12 students to enjoy this summer, and registration is open now. With nearly 100 camps and programs to choose from, there is something to suit nearly any interest, from STEM to the arts, humanities, athletics and more.
To make the choices easier to navigate, WSU Enrollment Management created a streamlined registration website, available at k-12.wayne.edu. Powered by InfoReady, the site has newly enhanced features, like the ability to save favorite camps from year to year, making future registration easier. It also includes year-round engagement opportunities for students and parents.
“The K-12 website offers a user-friendly platform allowing registrants to easily browse all of our excellent offerings,” said Provost Keith Whitfield. “Wayne State has a long tradition of K-12 outreach in our Detroit community and beyond. We look forward to hosting new and returning students on our beautiful Midtown campus this summer and throughout the year.”
C&IT Summer Engagement scholarships covering the full cost of STEM-related camps are available again this year, and students who qualify for free or reduced lunch are eligible for consideration. The scholarships are made possible by WSU’s Computing & Information Technology department, under the leadership of Chief Information Officer and Associate Vice President Daren Hubbard.
“We know that without these scholarship opportunities, there are students who may not have the chance to attend summer camp,” said Dawn Medley, associate vice president of enrollment management. “Thanks to Daren Hubbard and his team, we’re once again able to provide structured pre-college learning at Wayne State for all participants to grow.”
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. Overnight camp options are also available, and allow campers to reside in WSU’s student housing for the duration of the program. Some camps are free, but prices vary by program.
“I am really excited for this summer’s K-12 programming,” said Chloe Lundine, enrollment program manager. “Working on the website, I have had the chance to check out all of the really interesting camps we have to offer at Wayne State. The increased functionality of the site will make sure parents and students spend less time filling out paper forms and more time finding the perfect camp.”
Camps will fill up quickly, so register today!
