College for Kids is July 30 – Aug. 30.

VICTORY TOWNSHIP —  West Shore Community College will be hosting College for Kids 2018, July 30- August 3. 

The five-day session is a hands-on opportunity to explore higher education through arts, sciences, communications and recreation in a day-camp atmosphere on the college campus and features 20 plus action-packed learning adventures. Classes are designed for motivated learners ages 9-15-years-old. 

            “College for Kids exposes students to potential careers, expands their knowledge, and provides hands-on learning under the guidance of experienced educators,” said Crystal Young, director of the Business Opportunity Center.

            “While they’re learning, playing and developing friendships, they’re also getting a taste of campus life. The young students are all over campus, in college classrooms where they may attend classes someday, getting experience of how a college works through its equipment and technology.”

            Some of the courses and activities include electronics, culinary arts, creating with polymer clay, a variety of art classes, pond ecology, archery, build a business, American sign language, introduction to philosophy, and more.

Full-day, week-long participants receive two, three-hour courses, and a College for Kids t-shirt for $165. Half-day week-long participants receive one, three- hour course, and a t-shirt for $95. Some scholarships are available by contacting Cara Mitchell, or visiting the college’s tent at upcoming Friday Night Live events.

Students should bring a sack lunch or may purchase, in advance, lunch at the Beans & Bread café from a pre-established menu. Visit the college web site to view the menu.           

            To accommodate the schedule of working parents, younger students may be dropped off at the Tech Center at 8:30 a.m. and should be picked up at the same location no later than 4 p.m.

Registration for College for Kids starts July 16, and early registration is suggested as most courses are limited to 15 participants.
