Kids U Summer Camps at UT

Parent Handbook

Our award-winning Kids U summer camps are exclusive opportunities for area youth in grades 3-12. Children come to UT and learn from college faculty, staff, and graduate students in fields such as art, chemistry, cooking, anthropology, photography, microbiology, computers and veterinary medicine. Camps are offered for one week in the morning or afternoon.
Please register early. Class sizes are limited, and camps fill up quickly.

We understand that not everyone who wishes to participate in a Kids U camp has the financial ability to do so; therefore, we have a limited number of camp scholarships available. In order to be eligible for a scholarship, applicants must provide proof of financial need and meet certain criteria.

If you have a child or know of someone who might qualify for a scholarship, please visit our website at and fill out the appropriate forms. All scholarship applications are due by April 21. Applicants will be selected by May 12.
