Schoolcraft College’s popular “Kids on Campus” program will begin July 11 with its first week long session to give preschoolers through seniors in high school opportunities to expand their academic learning in a fun, hands-on atmosphere in a variety of areas, including computers, math, cultural immersion, acting, the arts, science, writing and careers.
The summer day camps are led by our skilled professionals in a diverse and dynamic social environment right on the Schoolcraft College campus. The programs generally run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. or 9 a.m. to noon with limited before and after care available for a small fee. The programs run weekly from July 11 through August 12, and this year’s programs will offer some unique educational opportunities. For example, 7th, 8th and 9th graders can sign up for these unique programs:
-Science vs. Pseudoscience-Fact vs. Fiction: Campers will use the Scientific Method to delve into and explore pseudoscience topics such as mythical creatures, extraterrestrials, astrology, numerology, feng shui, practice dowsing, levitation and extra-sensory perception. (Aug. 8-12)
-Inventors Workshop: Campers imaginations and inventiveness will be put to work during these sessions as they take an idea from creation through the patent process to completion. Kids with dreams of becoming scientists, engineers and business owners will enjoy this adventure as they experience the inventing process. (July 11-15 and Aug. 8-12)
-Ignite Your Firefighter Power: Through a combination of information-sharing with instruction and hands-on, field-training activities every day, kids who have an interest in firefighting will gain a whole new respect for the profession in this week-long camp experience. (July 18-22)
For high school students, this year will feature a new program, “The Great-Est Debate” that enhances campers debating skills in all aspects of their lives through team experiences learning about different types of debates, strategies and communication methods. (Aug. 1-5)
There are still a few spots available for these and dozens of other camp sessions. For program information and to register visit www.schoolcraft.edu/koc or call (734) 462-4448.
