Kids' Summer Camp Morning 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.

Reimagine! Reinvent! Reuse!

Instructor: Laura Williams
In the spirit of going green, this exciting workshop offers a series of creative projects designed around upcycling.  Hands-on experiences will encourage campers to rethink, repurpose, and hopefully, ignite their environmental awareness.  Drawing, painting, building and sculpting combine to help campers realize that everything old can be new again.  It’s all about the possibilities for reinvention and the problems an imagination can solve.

It’s in the Bag!

Co- Instructors: Elizabeth Hummel Huff & Laura Long
Drawing on a seasoned educator’s bag of tricks, this workshop is sure to spark our campers’ enthusiasm for learning. From 3-D games to grossology, a different theme will be explored every day. This workshop will appeal to a child’s love of arts, crafts and creativity with a dash of bag related learning thrown in for fun. Join us to be sure you don’t miss what’s in the bag! You won’t be disappointed!

Design Space:  S.T.E.A.M Style

Instructor: Melissa Brauer-Stuck
Our KSC maker space tradition continues to support meaningful, hands-on learning through this task-based workshop that incorporates science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. A whole new round of challenges that include circuitry and cricut design, clay and paper construction and Lego race cars for competition will be part of the fun. Just roll up your sleeves, once again, and explore your interests while you create something out of nothing in this exciting design space.

Kids' Summer Camp Additional Afternoon Package

Lunch time supervision and one afternoon special topic can be added to a student registration for an additional $95 per student

Afternoon sessions will be held from 1:30–3 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.

Option 1: Explore! Learn! Play! Create!

Co-Instructors: Kathryn Irwin Lentz & Brynn Musser
15 years of exploring, learning, playing, and creating at KSC has inspired this dynamic, interactive workshop that offers stimulating activities that reflect the essence of Kids’ College over the years. Campers will learn how to develop and extend their creativity through art-based activities designed to bring out a child's unique perspective. Join us as we think outside the box in a fun-filled setting and celebrate the best of everyone’s favorites over the years!

Option 2: World in a Whirl

Instructor: Brittany Bunting-Specht
Campers will participate in a simulated travel experience as they move from country to country discovering the everyday life and customs of other cultures. Join your tour guide who has experienced travel from France to Japan and enthusiastically shares her passion through activities that reflect the countries she’s visited. Traditional crafts, local cuisine and costumes will all help to introduce participants to the uniqueness of people throughout the world. So pack your bags and fasten your seatbelts for a whirlwind adventure!
