Discovery College is a fun, exciting and enriching program for seven to 14-year-olds. Sessions take place Monday through Thursday beginning Monday, June 12 – 29 and July 10 – 13 from 1-5 p.m. at the LSC-Montgomery campus.
“Discovery College entertains children and young adults with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)-based courses, fun activities that reflect their interests and even entrepreneurial projects,” said Camp Director Domonique Pugh. “Courses highlight interesting hobbies like computer coding and creating a business. We let kids be kids and also ensure they learn the benefits of attending college early on.”
Attending Discovery College is a great way to combat the “summer brain drain” and your kids will have so much fun, they won’t even realize they are learning! All sessions are available, sign up now before your first choice reaches capacity. Sessions like Robotics, LEGO® Engineering, Junior Veterinarian, Girls Night Out, Digital World of Photography and much more will keep your children in academic shape for when they get back to school.
“Lone Star CSI is an exciting favorite among students,” said Pugh. “The attendees explore the science behind crime scene investigation and learn what goes on behind the scenes. Students feel like they are a real investigator and even get to show up to a "crime-scene" simulation to see who can gather the real clues that make a difference.”
Other unique sessions include Clay & Sculpture, All-Sports Camp and Backyard Detectives. Each uses team-building exercises to let students develop situational awareness and learn practical life skills.
Knowledgeable instructors include local teachers, professional artists, and more. Each encourages participation in a variety of subjects formatted for age-appropriate groups. The instructors make learning fun and the relaxed, creative atmosphere allows students to develop new skills in a safe environment.
No other summer camp offers the variety and quality of programs at Discovery College’s prices. Each one-week session costs only $97. Spaces are filling up fast. Register now!
