Kids Night Out @ Western (KNOW) Anacortes

Registration ends the Sunday before each session.

Get in the KNOW, let out some STEAM and join the fun at Kids Night Out @ Western!

Students in grades K-5 join us at the Shannon Point Marine Center in Anacortes as we explore our ocean from local beach life to the deepest depths! Each session focuses on a marine STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) theme with hands-on activities and engaging lessons as we learn about new discoveries, cool innovations and how marine scientists at Shannon Point investigate the marine world.

Parents, take advantage of this opportunity to let your student have a great time with us while you get a few Friday evening hours for yourself. 

Financial assistance is available for this program! Before registering, Apply for financial assistance with the WWU Youth Program Financial Assistance app.

Youth program participants and staff must abide by all University regulations and program rules.
