I know we are still in the middle of winter, but savvy moms know this is the perfect time to start making plans for Utah summer camps. One of our family’s favorite ways to spend the summer is attending the University of Utah Youth Education “Summerscool” programs. When you sign up between February 16th and March 1st, you are automatically entered to win a free week of classes.
Never heard of Utah summer camps at the University of Utah? Here are a few examples of what this program offers:
Last summer, my teenager took a Utah summer camp film class through the U at this amazing production studio for teens called Spy Hop. She and two other teens made a short documentary film about an art studio downtown that specializes in showcasing disabled artists. Seriously–where else could she have an experience like that?
My tween took a computer animation class where she created her own computer generated fairy tale comic strip. Hers was a Little Red Riding Hood spoof that featured Little Red and Granny defeating the wolf themselves through their own trickery. It was awesome.
There are also language classes, cooking classes, an anatomy class, Egyptian culture, fashion design, art–seriously something for every kid.
What’s more, University of Utah Youth Education also has a great writing program. There’s “Writing Magic” for the very young writer, “Writing Wizards” for the upper elementary grades and “Seize the Story” for middle school and high school students.
I think summer is a great time to let our kids dive in to areas they don’t get the chance to explore during the school year. The University of Utah Youth Education offers the best selection and quality of any Utah summer camps I’ve found.
