Widener University is offering multiple summer camps and enrichment experiences for area high school students that explore several subject areas – from creative writing to robotics.

“These programs are ideal opportunities for high school students to spend time on the Widener campus, begin thinking about different areas of study and get to know members of our faculty and staff who are dedicated to ensuring they have a positive and welcoming experience,” said Provost Andy Workman. “The Widener community is committed to making everyone on our campuses know they belong. We hope these camp opportunities allow area high school students to get a taste of that.”
