Kids College Now Enrolling
May 31, 2018

Walters State’s Kids College Camp is now enrolling for two summer sessions: June 11-14 and June 18-21. Each sessions features separate classes for grades 3-5 and grades 6-8. The camp runs from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. each day. The cost is $120 a week. Students can attend one or both weeks. 
Students choose two classes each week. Choices include Forensic Files, Blast Off, Bot-Ball Wars, Film Makers, Marine Biology, Archeology, Nature Detectives, Pottery, Water World, Web Design, Spy Kids, Chemistry and others. 
“This is a great opportunity for students to improve skills in one area or explore a new subject. Classes entertain students while providing some unique learning opportunities,” said Dr. Nicole Cardwell-Hampton, youth coordinator for workforce training at Walters State. 
For example, students in pottery will work with a variety of materials. Students in nature detectives will learn what tree rings can tell you about the weather and natural disasters like earthquakes. 
Most classes are taught by Walters State professors and students.
“Students work in the same labs used by our students and have the chance to see how it feels to be on a college campus,” Cardwell-Hampton said. 
Classes are filled on a first-time basis. For more information, contact Cardwell-Hampton at 423-585-6756 or at
