About University of Washington, Seattle

At our Seattle summer camps held at UW, we strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential technology education to foster STEM skill development. Our popular University of Washington summer day camps and overnight camps allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting. GO HUSKIES!

We have chosen the UW main campus to host our popular Seattle academic summer camps because it is recognized for the excellence of its academic programs, faculty, research contributions and public service. The SEA-TAC Airport is approximately 25 minutes away, making University of Washington an easily accessible option for both a day camp and an overnight camp. Come check us out!

Aside from impressive academics, the University of Washington is also known for its athletic programs—"Go, Dawgs!" Did you know the founders and owners of iD Tech Camps are a brother and sister duo who both graduated from UW?

University of Washington Facts

Nickname: Huskies

Founded: 1861

Schools at University of Washington: Through 140 different departments, The University of Washington offers bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees.

Student Population: As one of the largest universities in the nation, UW Seattle is home to roughly 45,000 students.

Rankings: The U.S. News and World Report ranked the University of Washington 41st among "national universities." Both the University's School of Medicine and School of Nursing are ranked #1. For the School of Nursing, this #1 ranking has been the norm, going all the way back to when the first nursing school survey was conducted in 1984. Equally impressive, their Primary Medical has achieved #1 ever since the first ever U.S News & World Report ranking of such schools.

Athletics: Selected by the student committee in 1922, The University of Washington Husky continues to be one of the most recognizable mascots in all of college sports. The husky actually replaced UW's former mascot, the "Sun Dodger," an intangible reference to the mostly wet weather experienced by those in the Pacific Northwest. While the costumed "Harry the Husky" performs at sporting events, a true Alaskan Malamute (appropriately named "Dubs") has historically lead the Husky football team onto the field at the start of home games.

Distinguished Alumni & Personnel: The University of Washington's most notable alumni include CEO and co-Founder of MySpace Chris DeWolfe; co-Founder of Baskin & Robbins Irv Robbins; and former NFL quarterback and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Warren Moon.
