Michigan Technological University Summer Youth Programs

What are you doing this Summer? If its not recharging, exploring, meeting new people, and learning (Yes, I said it learning.) then, you aren’t doing it right!

Summer Youth Programs at Michigan Technological University has been around since 1972. This camp not only highlights what it is like to live on a college campus, but science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) sits up front and center and is full of excitement!
