Western Kids Camp is offered at Western Washington University's Bellingham and Poulsbo locations each summer. The camp, for students in kindergarten through sixth grade, is offered in week-long sessions designed to incorporate both academic and physical activities so that students have a fun time learning.

This week, which was the last of the summer for kids in kindergarten through sixth grade, the camp focused on Sustainability: Seed to Table.
