New Summer Teen College Joins Summer!Kids@Carroll to Expand Youth Offerings at Carroll Community College
Westminster, Md., Youth ages 13 through 15 now have a new option for summer camp as Carroll Community College launches Summer Teen College. This program is being offered in conjunction with Summer!Kids@Carroll for children age three to 12, which is now in its eighth year. Both programs begin June 25 and end Aug. 10, 2012.
Weekly summer enrichment classes covering topics, which range from careers to cooking to technology and more, will be available for teens through half-day and full-day programs.
“Youth who have attended Summer!Kids@Carroll over the years have grown and matured. They are now interested in topics which appeal more to teenagers. We hate to see them leave the program so we just made the program better by accommodating their needs and interests,” said Senior Director of Lifelong Learning & Program Support Systems Sally Long.
“Teens who attend the new classes will have more choices, responsibility, and independence,” said Long.
“I am delighted that Carroll Community College offers youth programs during the summer which enrich young minds,” said College President Dr. Faye Pappalardo.
New camps for teens include “Sketching and Drawing”; “APP Attack”; “Science and Your Sixth Sense”; “Woodshop Apprenticeship”; and “Sports Conditioning,” among many others.
Favorite Summer!Kids@Carroll classes will return by popular demand. Brand new classes will be offered, as well. Favorites include “Veterinary CSI”; “American Girl Camp”; “Art Attack”; “Engineering Camp,” and more. New Summer!Kids@Carroll classes include “Magic Camp”; “Mad Science: Lab Rats”; three new “Magic Tree House” camps, and more. For a full catalog of camps, please visit www.carrollcc.edu/summerkids.
