2017 School Break Camps

JUMP believes that kids thrive and learn best when they’re having fun. During each week of camp, we strive to create fun, novel experiences for campers, with a STEM twist. By focusing on making science accessible for kids of all abilities, we create opportunities for kids to explore everything from polymers to robotics to their community.

Below you will find some information about upcoming school break camps for the 2017 to 2018 school year. Feel free to email jumphc@uw.edu for additional details!
