Summer Camps for Teens at WCC Mix Fun and Learning
(Note: Teens on Campus has returned to WCC for 2011. Current information can be found at the Teens on Campus registration site).
Teens can learn how to play in a rock band, build robots, work with wood, create 3D computer animations, write fiction, and more at over a dozen camps that WCC is offering this summer.
The second annual Teens on Campus Summer Camps are aimed at students who will be entering grades 6-12 in the fall. Camps are available in six areas: arts, construction, music and theater, technology, woodworking, and writing. The camps, which will be held in late June and July, last between three and five days.
Some scholarships are available. They’re based on financial need and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
“The whole idea is to help kids bridge to the next step in their lives,” said Diana Sepac, the director of Evening and Extension Services and coordinator of the camps. “It’s a chance for kids to see what college campuses are like.”
The biggest advantage of WCC’s camps is the strong focus on education, Sepac said. “The kids will have a very high-level educational experience,” she said. “We’re serious about people learning.” The teachers will include WCC faculty members, local high school teachers, and others who specialize in the subject they’ll be teaching.
