summer camps and youth enrichment

fotoparaprogramsWith the participation of Western Illinois University (WIU) faculty, staff, and the help of student counselors, the Office of Study Abroad and Outreach (SAO) provides youth with unique hands–on learning opportunities that will transform the way they think about their future. These high-quality and academically challenging summer camps have been serving youth for more than 30 years.  

In the summer of 2016, SAO offered four new summer camp opportunities to youth and this summer will be even more exciting with yet another new summer camp. Approximately 150 youth came to campus to attend these programs. They introduced not only some of our great faculty and community educators, but also to the facilities WIU has available to students if they were to attend WIU.
