Summer Youth Programs
Summer Youth Programs (SYP) is a fantastic, camp-like, mini-college experience that packs a ton of hands-on learning, experimenting, and fun into each day. Every summer, nearly 1,000 students from around the world in grades six to 11 come to campus for week-long explorations in science and technology, engineering, computing, business, and humanities. Join us this summer to spark curiosity, explore interests, and forge lasting friendships.
The H-STEM Complex is a major investment in our campus by the State of Michigan and the University that will provide state-of-the-art teaching and research labs for health-related STEM studies. The project is planned to be completed and the building occupied sometime in early 2024.
