High school students across Highline found connection and inspiration around a virtual campfire on a December weekend in 2020. It was a powerful and moving end of a not-so-normal fall at Camp Waskowitz. Starting Spring 2021, WELS has enrollment openings in its innovative, project-based program for students currently in grades 10-11. Ninth grade students also are invited to learn about WELS and to enroll for the 2021-22 school year.
