By Ellie Wise

Campbellsville, KY - Campbellsville University's Technology Training Center will hold a Kids College Camp this summer for grades second through seventh and preschool through first grade.

Kids College, for grades second through seventh, is June 6-9 from 1pmET to 3:45pmET each day, or July 18-21, from 9amET to 11:45amET each day. Jr. Kids College, for preschool through first grade, is June 27-30 from 1pmET to 3:45pmET daily.

"Campbellsville University's Kids College is an exciting time each summer, for both the students and the adults who are involved in it," Daran Kennon, community education coordinator at Campbellsville University's Virginia Ponser Flanagan Technology Training Center, said.

"We all learn so much from the program and look forward to it each year. All our instructors and helpers love working with kids, seeing them develop in their education and watching them have a fun and blessed time. To see the smiles on each of the children's faces is a blessing to us. We hope each child will take home special memories of the Kids College," Kennon said.

Two classes per session can be selected for the camp for grades second through seventh. Preschool through first grade will rotate through each class.

The classes are as follows:

Sharp Shooting Archery, taught by Chris Buis. "He is devoted to teaching them about shooting archery in a safe environment," Kennon said.

Cooking Up a Storm will be taught by Pam Tennant, E. Bruce Heilman Student Center coordinator at Campbellsville University, in the June Session, and Natalie Oliver in July.

Cool Scientist will be taught by Amy Berry, environmental educator and instructor in environmental science in Campbellsville University's Science department in June, and Susan Blevins, who retired this year from teaching in Campbellsville University's Education Department, in the July session.

Outdoor Photography will be taught by Pat Hall with her husband, Marion Hall, both of Campbellsville University. Students will be taken to Trace Creek and Miller Park and will be taught about taking photos of nature. Each student will download their photos to a flash drive to take home with them.

In a class titled "Amazing Art," children will engage in creating some Amazing Art projects taught by Campbellsville University's Department of Art & Design students.

Eric Smith, director of information technology at Campbellsville University, will teach Computer Programming.

Fun in the Run will be taught by Corbin Harris, Campbellsville University's cross country coach.

At the end of each camp, each child will receive a T-shirt and a Campbellsville University water bottle to take home, as well as photos of the group and any projects they created in class.
