Summer camps

Summer camps

Every summer, K-State hosts summer programs designed to educate and inspire youth in a variety of academic, athletic and extracurricular endeavors. Participants have the opportunity to further their education and skills while experiencing life at K-State and making new friends from around the county. We invite you to join us!

The camps listing is updated every spring when new dates, times and locations are set by the camp coordinators.
