Kid’s College is an interactive and educational camp that offers learning in various areas around the college campus. Participants have the ability to choose the classes they want to attend during the four-day camp and will use the university labs and classrooms on campus for interactive learning. Classes for different age groups may include Space Explorers, Pottery, Junior Chefs, Find your Guitar Voice, Growing with Technology, Math Olympics, STEM Building, Kid’s on the Move, and First Aid/Nursing Skills.
