TRI-CITIES, Wash. — Washington State University Tri-City’s annual “Summer Science Camps for Kids” program kicks off June 30 with a second location and new programs for students kindergarten through fifth grade.

There will be six week-long, hands-on sessions for children, four on the north Richland WSU campus and two in Pasco.

Through new corporate and community partnerships, scholarships are available to students at all the science camps. “This year, we’ve teamed up with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties, Fluor and Key Bank to expand the camps we can offer and provide scholarships,” said LoAnn Ayers, camps director.

The Summer Science Camp sessions are offered at the campus’ Consolidated Information Center in Richland and at the Boys and Girls Clubs in Pasco.

The first camp is “Radical Robo-Tech,” June 20-July 3 in Pasco.

In July, “Space and Rocketry” camp will run from July 7-11 at the Pasco site, “Fantastic Flight,” is July 14-18; and “Mystery of the Pharoah’s Treasure” is scheduled July 21-25, in Richland.

The final two camp sessions, both at the WSU Richland campus, are “Radical Robo-Tech,” July 28–Aug. 1, and “Space and Rocketry,” Aug. 4-8.

The popular WSU Summer Camps are now in their fifth year and early registration discounts are available through May 30.
