K–12 Opportunities on Campus

Hope College has a rich history of welcoming younger students on campus to share, explore and grow. There’s something for everyone.

Summer Science Camps
Each year, Summer Science Camps provides hands-on, inquiry based learning for students of all ages. Camps run weekly with over 50 topics to choose from.
Musical Arts Academy
The Musical Arts Academy (MAA) provides students of all ages and abilities the opportunity to experience and develop a lifelong love of music. By connecting the talented teachers and students of Hope College with members of the community, MAA offers multiple avenues to explore, expand and inspire each individual’s musical development.
Awakening
Awakening is a week-long gathering to explore faith, worship, your gifts and your relationship with God. For high school students going into grades 10–12 who are seeking to grow their skills and passions about worship and the arts. Are you a musician, an actor, an artist, a dancer, a sound technician or a philosopher? Take this opportunity to develop your gifts — and perhaps discover gifts you never realized.
