Due to Covid-19, ATYP has had to make some changes to the summer camp offerings. All Writing the College Admissions Essay camps will be held online! Also, all June camps will be held online except for the Introduction to Vet Science camp. This includes Graphic Novels, Playwriting, and Cryptography. The Vet Science camp has been moved to July 6-10. As changes are rapidly evolving, ATYP is still making decisions on the other July camps - stay tuned.

"WMU ATYP Summer Camps offer excellent enrichment opportunities at a very reasonable cost. A wonderful chance for students to explore what interests them."
