Kids' Summer Camp Package

Three workshop package: $200 per student

A three-session package designed to keep our younger campers thinking and moving! Morning sessions will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.

Tech Free Zone—Laura Williams, Instructor
The power is out and unlikely to return for some time. No cell phones! No computers! No electronics! It's time to leave technology behind and visit the days when games like marbles and jacks, bike hikes and tree forts were the play of the day. Enjoy a week of creative fun that will take you back to an era when electronic gadgets and gizmos had yet to be an everyday thing and kids made their own fun inside and out!

The Great Escape—Elizabeth Hummel, Instructor
The escape room trend has found its' way to our Kids' Summer Camp. Join us for a unique, learning adventure where players collaborate to solve a series of puzzles and riddles using hints, clues and strategies to complete the challenges and find a way to escape. Team members will have an opportunity to extend their creative and critical problem solving abilities as well as their team building skills in this exciting, learning experience!

Tinker Time—Melissa Brauer-Stuck, Instructor
Tinker Time offers a dynamic maker space experience that supports meaningful, hands-on learning. A wide range of materials motivates campers to explore their interests and create something out of nothing. From cardboard and duct tape to Legos and Lincoln Logs, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. So roll up your sleeves and get ready to explore, learn, play and create in true Kids' College style. You won't be disappointed and might even head home to create a maker space of your own!

Lunch time supervision and one afternoon special topic fee: $90 per student

Afternoon sessions will be held from 1:15–3 p.m. daily with lunchtime supervision included. An afternoon workshop can be added on to the morning camp package, or campers can arrive at 1 p.m. and only attend an afternoon workshop.

Tech Full Zone—Laura Williams, Instructor

The Afternoon Session for Tech Full Zone is full.

The power is on! The computer lab is ready and the gadgets and gizmos return. Time to revisit our technological world.
