Western to host Camp W-Kid’s College
Published on Tuesday, March 20, 2012
Western Technical College will be hosting the spring session of Camp W-Kid’s College on Saturday, April 28, 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 academic programs offered at the college, some are designed just for fun. Students can choose up to three of the 20 different classes to attend throughout the morning.
Cost is $24 for three classes. To register, complete a Camp W form online at www.westerntc.edu/campw. Payment can also be completed online. Classes fill quickly, so early registration is encouraged.
