From June 8-13, Wittenberg and Avetec will host the university's 22nd WISE Academic Camp, which provides academic enrichment in a fun, coed residential camp for students entering grades 6, 7 and 8. From July 14-19, Wittenberg and Avetec will host Young Women in Science (YWS), a weeklong day camp for middle school girls entering grades 7 and 8 with an interest in science, math, physics and computers.
The WISE Academic camp offers students a taste of college life by selecting a major in biology, chemistry, Chinese, drama or leadership and attending a variety of classes. The participants' college experience will be made complete by participating in recreational and social activities that promote team building and leadership.
The YWS day camp offers participants the opportunity to advance their skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), as well as take part in hands-on project-based learning experiences in a creative team atmosphere. The summer program also introduces girls to women working in STEM career fields.
The cost to attend the WISE Academic Camp is $595, which covers the cost of classes, activities, room and board and a Wittenberg T-Shirt. The cost to attend the YWS day camp is $125, which covers the cost of lunches, a camp T-shirt and full registration to the Wings of Women Conference. Full and partial need-based scholarships are available to those with challenging financial situations.
