Information for Participants

What you need to know when considering Western’s Youth Programs.

About Our Programs

  • Western has offered youth programs since 1983.
  • From recreational to residential academic programs, we offer something for every student interest.
  • We keep the student-to-staff ratio as low as possible for the highest quality programming. Typical programs run 10-12 students to one staff member.
  • Program staff are trained to work with K-12 students on and off Western’s campus.
  • Our programs take advantage of the unique resources (staff, faculty, students, labs, classrooms and more) Western and our local community partners have to offer.
  • We update our program offerings based on participant feedback.

Registering for Programs

  • Registration closes 1-3 weeks prior to the start of programs.
  • Payment is due at the time of registration.
  • Financial assistance may be available. Financial Assistance Applications should be submitted and your award notification received prior to registering for programs for aid to apply.
  • You will receive a confirmation email from us after you successfully register.

After You Register

You will receive a program-specific email a week prior to your program with details about student drop off, pick up, parking, what to bring and more. Contact us if you have registered for a program and have not received an email by the Wednesday before your program is scheduled to start.
