2017 College for Kids Program

Nine new clever classes are featured in the 2017 College for Kids program to be held June 19-23 at Kent State University at Tuscarawas. A total of 16 youth enrichment classes will be offered during this 27th year of programming designed for students who were in grades kindergarten through sixth during the 2016-17 school year. The five-day session offers courses from 10 a.m. to noon and 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

“We have created new energy in the College for Kids program this year by offering exciting new subjects, partnering with community programs and updating some of our well-known courses,” said Cindi Supers, coordinator of College for Kids. “The new classes include Splatter & Drip Let's Paint!, Get Wild with Nature, Artistic Geometry, Animal Camp, Teddy Bear ER, Emergency Room, Be a Programmer with Blockly, Fun in the Sun Art and Story Time Adventures with Dr. Seuss. Along with the new classes, we have some favorites back again like Makerspace Magic, Jr. Chefs, Ready, Set, ACTION! and Living in 1772: Historic Schoenbrunn Village, plus more. A complete schedule with course descriptions is available at www.kent.edu/tusc/bcs/cfk.”
