Spend 1, 2 or 3 weeks on Western’s campus exploring engaging science topics with new friends during this exciting summer program. Join students in grades 4-6 from South Korea sponsored by JLS Academy for a fun Western experience. Each weekly session is a balance of morning enrichment and afternoon recreational activities that are designed to foster active minds and bodies.

University resources and facilities create an extraordinary learning environment where students investigate hands-on science, nature and arts. The award winning Wade King Recreation Center provides the perfect setting to continue the morning learning through afternoon “camp” activities; including swimming, rock-wall climbing, archery, arts and crafts, and much more.
