As the spring semester ends, parents need to make plans for their children during summer break.
A fun and educational option is to enroll them in Lone Star College-Kingwood’s annual Discovery College program. This summer program provides fun and educational activities for children 6-to-14-year-olds. Discovery College will take place on Mondays-Thursdays June 13-30 and July 11-14. Morning sessions are from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and afternoon sessions are from 1-5 p.m. There are no camps on Fridays.
“Discovery College at LSC-Kingwood provides a safe and fun ‘college experience’. It gives students and their families a comfortable introduction to their local Lone Star College campus,” said Katherine Soderbergh, co-program manager of Discovery College at LSC-Kingwood.
Several camps are designed to engage children in key areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to promote a true learning experience. Camps available this summer are All-Sports Camp, Duct Tape Art, Robotics, Building Simple Apps, Cosmic Explorations, Cupcake Creations, Junior Veterinarian, Game Design, Backyard Detective, Rocket Science, Junior Meteorologists, Claymation Creations, Bubbly Oozy Science, Digital World of Photography, Adventures in Art, Lemonade Mogul, Come Fly with Me, and Go, Speed Racer!
In addition to the summer camps, this program is also seeking volunteers. Students who are 16-years-old or older, are invited to apply and join Discovery College as a summer volunteer. Volunteers work with students and provide close supervision and assistance to the director and instructors.
