Youth Camps - Education and Technology from UW-Parkside

About the Programs

The University of Wisconsin-Parkside, through their Office of Professional and Continuing Education, created Summer Youth Camps as a way to discover new interests and keep youths learning. Normal summer classes can focus on a subject or activity, through this program, children have the opportunity to learn more than just arts and crafts or math. A lot of the options given are computer based and can be done from home, but there are a couple of programs that will be taught in person. The classes tend to last about 1-2 weeks, and many are eligible for scholarships. Some of the classes include; programming, designing apps and Minecraft maps or objects, Roblox coding, and so much more!
