Summer offerings

Summer Science Camps
Each year, Summer Science Camps offers hands-on, inquiry based learning for students of all ages. Camps run weekly with more than 50 topics to choose from. 
Awakening is a week-long gathering to explore faith, worship, your gifts and your relationships 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 muscian, 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.
Hope College Sports Camps
Hope College sports coaches and players share their time and talents with local youth each summer. Find your sport, ability level and passion, and come learn and grow this summer. View the camp listing.
Hope Summer Reperatory Theatre
Part of HSRT's mission is to provide educational oportunities for the youth in our community. We hope that by providing these experiences, participants will develop a lifelong love of theatre.
