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 classes in art, science, creative writing and drama. 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.
