Elementary School Camps

This summer, your child can unleash their creativity and learn new things at the University of Washington!

Our full-day camps for kids entering  first through fifth grades combine daily arts and STEM-related classes and activities. There's also plenty of time for fresh air and outdoor play, too. Each camp is centered around a different theme, so you can sign up for one or all.

At the end of the summer, we also offer a full-day drama camp for the budding actors in your family.

All camps meet on the UW Seattle campus.
