Experience Tech




An Overview of Michigan Tech SYP

Summer camp? Sort of... but better. Our programs aren't ordinary, and neither are our students. They build robots, rappel down cliffs, perform chemical diagnostics, fly airplanes, and make movies. They come from across the country and around the world to learn engineering, film production, molten metal casting, and more--all in an adventurous, fun, and hands-on way.

For over 40 years, Michigan Tech faculty, students, role models and other professionals have been leading Summer Youth Programs' middle school and pre-college explorations, as well as high school competitive scholarship programs. Our programs are built around activities, field trips and team projects.

Summer Youth Programs is a division of the Center for Pre-College Outreach at Michigan Technological University, and we offer students an opportunity to experience a miniature version of college life. Students live in our full-service residence hall, eat in the dining hall, and participate in their chosen exploration.

There are many courses and explorations to choose from, including computing, engineering, humanities, outdoor and environmental studies, and many more. Over 1,000 students travel to Michigan Tech's campus each year from throughout the country and around the world; places such as South Korea, Canada, Spain, Japan, Bahrain and Pakistan to name a few!

Evenings allow students to relax and participate in many different recreational activities that range from athletics to a variety show, from crafts to exploring the scenic Keweenaw Peninsula, all while under the supervision of our professionally trained activities counselors. Residence counselors provide general supervision at night and serve as mentors to the students by conducting nightly floor meetings to reflect on the day's adventures.

Be sure to check out more information about all of these programs. Scholarships may also be available for Summer Youth Programs participants. Check out Discounts and Scholarships for more details.

Thank you for your interest in Summer Youth Programs at Michigan Tech! We hope to see you this summer in the beautiful Upper Peninsula!
