LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Western Technical College Foundation will be hosting the fall session of Camp W - Kid’s College on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 8:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at Western’s La Crosse Campus.

Twice each year (fall and spring), the Western 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.

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. From virtual surgery to Lego fun, architecture to self defense, Camp W provides 20 different course choices. Students are able to choose three different classes to attend throughout the morning.
