POULSBO – Western Washington University will offer youth programs for grades K-12 for the first time on the Kitsap Peninsula this summer at the Western Washington University Center at Olympic College in Poulsbo.
Modeled after Western Youth Programs signature Bellingham offerings, four programs will be debuted in summer 2014, including:
- Western Kids Camp (Grades K-4) – a program designed to introduce youth to the fun of being on a college campus, including academic exploration in the morning and recreational activities in the afternoon with the City of Poulsbo Parks and Recreation.
- Odyssey of Science & Arts (grades 4-9) – a hands-on academic enrichment offering focused on science exploration in specialized labs on a college campus and in an outdoor classroom at the Poulsbo Marine Science Center.
- Grandparents “U” (ages 7-14) – a unique intergenerational program encouraging grandparents and grandchildren to explore science topics side-by-side in an interactive environment.
- College Quest (entering grades 10-12) – a college prep program in which ambitious high school students participate in a college-like course and learn valuable college success information.
Registration is currently open for all summer programs at wwu.edu/youth.
Early bird registration is offered for selected programs, with a discount available for those registering prior to May 15. Western and Olympic College alumni, faculty and staff are also eligible for discounts on selected programs.
For over three decades Western Youth Programs has inspired students to explore their educational and creative passions in a safe, lively college atmosphere. In addition to personal growth, Western Youth Programs encourages youth of all ages to consider higher education as a possibility for their own future.
