Blogging to Stand-Up Comedy to Introductory Chinese to Yoga at Kids on Campus
KEENE, N.H., 04/30/08 - Registration for Kids on Campus, Keene State College's Continuing Education and Extended Studies summer program for first through ninth graders, is open.
Combining fun and learning, Kids on Campus classes focus on dinosaurs, introductory Chinese, nature, science, music, yoga, dance, blogging, comics, stand-up comedy, and catapults, and are among 41 different topics offered. The program runs for three weeks: June 30-July 3, July 14-18, and July 28-August 1. Morning classes run from 9 a.m. to noon with afternoon classes running from 1 to 4 p.m.
Sessions are taught by teachers from local schools, KSC faculty, and other experts.
While sessions are suggested for first through third graders, fourth through sixth graders, and seventh through ninth graders, what is more important is the child's interest in the topic. Specific items students need to bring to class, including on the first day, are noted in the course descriptions.
Parents walk students to the classroom and pick them up from that same location. Parents supply snacks and drinks for break time and lunch for students staying a full day. KSC staff meets all-day students after morning class, accompanying them to the lunch area before walking them to afternoon classes. All breaks are supervised.
Per week, the cost per child is $125 for a half day and $200 for a full day for five-day weeks. The cost for the June 30-July 3 is $100 for a half day and $160 for a full day. Students receive a free T-shirt.
Prompt registration is advisable. No more than 12 students are accepted in a class.
