LA CROSSE, Wis. - Western Wisconsin Technical College (WWTC) Foundation will be hosting the spring session of Camp W—Kid’s College on Saturday, April 9, from 8:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the WWTC La Crosse Campus.

Twice each year (fall and spring), the WWTC Foundation hosts Camp W for area children in grades 4-6. Camp W is a youth enrichment program, which shows children how it feels to go to college for a day.

WWTC 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. From basketball to Lego fun, theatre to photography, Camp W provides 24 different course choices. Students can choose up to three different classes to attend throughout the morning.

Each participant must complete a Camp W registration form, which is available at local schools or online at http://www.wwtc.edu/foundation/campW.asp. Classes fill quickly, so early registration is encouraged.

Completed registration forms and registration fees ($21.00 for three classes) must be turned in by Monday, March 28 to the WWTC Foundation Office located on the third floor of the WWTC Administration Building on the corner of Seventh and Main Streets in La Crosse, or mailed to 304 6th St. N., P.O. Box 908, La Crosse, WI 54602-0908. All checks should be made payable to WWTC Foundation.
