Summer Programs

Summer programs at ASU’s College of Health Solutions provide engaging and fun health-oriented learning opportunities and supportive therapies for children and teens. With our summer programs, we aim to improve the health of our communities by teaching young people how to be healthy and stay healthy.

Many of our programs help teens socialize and discover rewarding careers in health. Camps for younger children teach them about healthy behaviors and how to bring a love for health into their own lives. Other programs offer assistance with speech, hearing and language needs in a friendly and supportive way.

We know how important good health is — and that it begins with young people who want to be healthy and make a difference. Get started with our summer programs.

Summer programs during the COVID-19 crisis

This summer, for the safety of all, many of our programs have moved to online formats. This change will allow us to bring our engaging and educational programming into your homes without the risks of spreading the coronavirus. Other programs that cannot function as well online have been postponed until next summer.

In addition to our current online programs, we are offering a new free summer series for K-8 students called Health Adventure Quest that includes demonstrations, presentations and guided at-home activities. Learn more.
