Registration is now open for Chesapeake College’s popular summer enrichment program for children and teens. The Kids on Campus program, scheduled for June 23 through August 8, offers a variety of sessions designed for children in grades 2 through 11.
The Kids on Campus courses are divided into sections for children by the grades they are entering in Fall 2014. The Maryland Boater’s Safety Certificate Course will be offered for grade 6-11 students, and “Counselor in Training” course will be offered for high school students. New this year are a STEM Camp and youth Entrepreneur Camp designed for Gifted and Talented students.
Tweens and young teens will be interested in the “Safe Sitter” class where they will learn basic lifesaving skills and fun tips for entertaining young children. For the first time, KOC campers can participate in an overnight camp-out this year during “Environmental Adventure.” Other course topics include arts/crafts, digital photography, Lego robotics, cheerleading, dance, culinary, digital video, sewing, drama, and ecological/wildlife studies.
“We are offering fun educational opportunities for children to help keep their minds stimulated over the summer in a safe environment. We are really excited about our new course offerings. We have many talented educators or skilled professionals who will be teaching these courses,” said Program Director Anne Slater.
Each program session is a half-day, with two sessions per day scheduled for each age group. Participants may choose to participate in one or two sessions per day. “Environmental Adventure”, “Counselor’s in Training” and “NCA Cheer Camp” are full-day sessions. Full-day camp participants will enjoy a supervised lunch break in the Skipjack Café. In addition to the program sessions, Chesapeake is offering morning and afternoon care with the Kids Club. The morning session will run from 7:30 to 9 a.m. and the afternoon session is from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
