Western Technical College will be hosting the spring session of Camp W-Kid’s College on Saturday, April 25, from 8:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at Western’s La Crosse Campus.

Twice each year (fall and spring), the college hosts Camp W, a youth enrichment program designed for area children in grades 4-6. Western faculty and staff volunteer their time and talents to give area children the opportunity to explore special interests in a unique educational setting and to see what the college is all about.

Courses can include everything from building toolboxes to maneuvering around in wheelchairs, making beaded work to taking pictures, or just clowning around. And while some of the classes correlate to an academic program offered at the college, some are designed just for fun. Students can choose up to three of the 19 different classes to attend throughout the morning.

To register, each participant must complete a Camp W form online at Classes fill quickly, so early registration is encouraged.

Completed on-line registration forms and registration fees ($24 for three classes) must be turned in by Friday, April 3 to the Western Technical College Foundation Office located on the third floor of the Western’s Administration Building on the corner of Seventh and Main Streets in La Crosse, or mailed to 400 7th St. N., P.O. Box 908, La Crosse, WI 54602-0908. All checks should be made payable to Camp W.
