Registration Open for Summer!Kids@Carroll and Teen College at Carroll Community College
Westminster, Md.,--Summer! Kids@Carroll and Teen College, a youth summer camp program at Carroll Community College, is right around the corner. The weekly camps will be offered from June 24 through August 9, 2013. Registration is ongoing.
Now in its ninth year, the popular program has grown from 500 registrations in 2004 to over 1800 in summer, 2012. Its success, according to Sally Long, senior director of Lifelong Learning and Program Support Systems, “is due to the enrichment experience in a camp-like environment; high quality instruction; well trained staff and quality assurance; well-planned processes and organization; and, of course, we don’t skimp on the fun.”
Summer! Kids@Carroll and Teen College serve youth ages four to 15. The college’s Child Development Center provides camps for children ages four and five.
Summer!Kids@Carroll focuses on youth ages five to 11 and Teen College serves teens age 12 to 15. The week-long camps provide in-depth experiences in a wide variety of subject areas.
New camps this year help scouts to earn badges. Staff will be on hand all summer to provide the required outlines for the Girl Scouts or to sign the Blue Card for Boy Scouts. A chart showing which camps meet some or all of specific badge requirements is available at carrollcc.edu/summerkids.
Also, the 2013 summer camp season features more camps for five-year-olds, expanded STEM-related programs and over 60 new camps overall. From ancient civilization to nature; Lego’s to performance; cooking to Harry Potter; and engineering to fashion, kids and teens will find something to inspire and motivate.
Long said “Each camp explores a topic in depth. It is important to keep students coming back and pursuing new interests. That is one reason it is important to offer new programs. Each summer, children come back to something new or fresh, even if it is related to a previous experience.”
