William Peace University to Offer In-Person High School Summer Camps

William Peace University (WPU) is excited to open its campus in Downtown Raleigh to rising 9th through 12th grade students to earn college credit this summer. These camps offer students the opportunity to distinguish themselves from other college applicants while providing students with an immersive learning experience.

Mark your calendars for these in-person, fast-paced summer day camps from July 12-July 15, 2021. Faculty experts will lead camps about communications and multimedia, sports and spirituality, and the art of songwriting.

Thanks to William Peace University’s location in the center of Raleigh, students in the communications and multimedia camp will learn about Raleigh’s development while creating a multimedia website that sheds light on the changing face of Downtown Raleigh. Students will hone their skills in researching and writing for publication, as well as creating multimedia content such as a podcast, videos and interactive graphics.

Students in another course will learn about the role of sports, games and spirituality in pursuit of happiness and connection, and the third course focuses on the art of songwriting (no prior music knowledge required!).

“We love summer camp because it demonstrates to our students that you can make a career out of something that is also really fun and our small camp size provides the benefit of individualized attention from the brilliant faculty leading the camps,” said Dr. Charles Ducan, VP for Academic Affairs.

WPU follows COVID-19 health and safety measures including requiring masks indoors, social distancing, and reduced capacity of classrooms. Each camp has a maximum of 15 participants to ensure faculty mentoring and student engagement.
