Western Technical College will be hosting the spring session of Camp W-Kid’s College on Saturday, April 14, from 8:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at Western’s

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

From dodgeball to sign language, theatre to car care, Camp W provides 21 different course choices. Students can choose up to three 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 registration forms and registration fees ($21.00 for three classes) must be turned in by Friday, March 30 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 304 6th St. N., P.O.
