UCM hosts several youth programs in many different forms, some of which may be eligible
for dual credit. In addition to our athletic camps and in-resident leadership programs at the Warrensburg campus, UCM Lee's Summit offers programming for youth that include summer day camps and workshops.
Summer Day Camps and Workshops
Day camps and workshops provide opportunities for all ages to explore different areas
of interest. Our pre-college camps allow middle and high school students to experience
various degree options, reducing the number of degree changes once admitted to college.
Examples of programming tailored for students from elementary through high school
are listed below.
- Black Rocket STEAM Summer Camps provide students from age 6 through 14 with opportunities to explore topics such
as video game design and animation, coding, mobile app development, YouTube content,
digital music creation and cybersecurity. Half-day camps are offered at our Lee’s
Summit campus with students learning via engaging, hands-on lessons. Online courses
are also available.
- Young Writers Camps are designed for middle and high school students interested in learning more about
creative writing. In-person four-day workshops are offered in Kansas City. This popular
class is presented by the Greater Kansas City Writing Project in a supportive environment
and includes an open-mic celebration at the end of each session.
- Summer Art Classes are new this year for high school students. Taught by published author and illustrator
John F. Malta, the classes include an online Writing and Drawing Children’s Book Workshop
and an in-person Comics and Graphic Storytelling course, offered at the Lee’s Summit
Dual Credit opportunities are available for high school students during the school
year and summer break. Learn More
