WSU Spokane hosts summer camps

The WSU Spokane CityLab is hosting two science camps, one for beginners and one for returning campers. The beginner camp will encourage young women entering grades 6-8 to investigate forensic science and includes a T-shirt, a day trip to WSU Pullman and an afternoon at Wild Walls. The beginner camp will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 14-18. Parents should register their children by June 4.

The intermediate camp July 19-23 will introduce biotechnology to returning campers. During the week, campers will spend half their time in the biotech lab and the other half learning to market their product by placing it online. Parents should register their children by July 9.

CityLab camps are $135 for the week. Some scholarships are available for those needing financial assistance. For more information, contact Glynis Hull, (509) 358-7638,, or visit the WSU Spokane CityLab Web site at

The Interdisciplinary Design Institute at WSU Spokane is also offering a Design Day Camp, which will offer students entering grades 6-9 an opportunity to explore a variety of age- and skill-appropriate design activities. The theme of these activities will be light and how it applies to the disciplines of architecture, interior design and landscape architecture. Accredited WSU faculty members will present workshops, so campers get real-world, hands-on experience.

The Design Day Camp will be held June 21-25, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., except for Friday when camp will conclude at 1 p.m. Preregistration with an advance full payment of $175 is required by June 16. For more information or to register, contact Pam Medley at (509) 358-7920,
