Youth Programs

College for Kids (Youth program) brochure is COMING SOON!

June 12 - 16; June 19 - 23, 2017 

College for Kids is a special summer enrichment program for children grades K-6. Classes ranging from art to chemistry to living history to world languages are available each year!  Online Registration will begin on April 10, 2017.

We continue to offer many new exciting classes as well as some traditional favorites. Out teachers come from local school districts and UWMC, and are well qualified & eager to share their excitement on the subject matter.

Our programs are designed to:

  • Stimulate intellectual curiosity
  • Encourage creativity
  • Instill confidence
  • Develop problem solving & critical thinking skills
  • Be fun & hands-on 

All classes will be taught by highly trained and talented instructors from the local area school districts and UWMC. Our staff and instructors provide a well-supervised and safe environment in which to learn.

The UWMC Summer Youth Programs are for all children who want to discover learning new things.

We ask that children new to the “College for Kids” program get a signed letter from their teacher verifying that s/he is able and motivated to participate in that program.
