Youth Programs

Action-Packed, Hands-On, Dynamic & Engaging

WSU Tri-Cities has been home to some of the region’s most advanced summer programming for youth year after year. Students benefit from curriculum designed by national experts and facilitated by local professionals. In one week, students gain the type of hands-on, practical experience not ordinarily found in their year-round classroom.

Our campus remains dedicated to providing parents with the highest quality learning opportunities for their students, as research has shown that summer learning loss results in significant achievement gaps. In effort to combat this, our youth programs allows students to use utilize different learning skills that helps maximize retention of critical reading, science, and math skills.
