OCU’s Kids on Campus starts June 3

From OCU:

Kids on Campus is a great summer opportunity for your child to enrich their mind in a fun, college environment. Registration for Kids on Campus 2018 summer camp has begun for students whose current grade level is first through fourth grade and will continue until classes fill or May 18, whichever is first.

Kids on Campus, held on the campus of Ohio Christian University, is a summer enrichment program designed to provide students with an early awareness of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects— as well as art and music. The program is coordinated by Pickaway HELPS, with support from Ohio Christian University and funding from PPG Industries.

Kids on Campus, first held in 2007, provides hands-on learning with experiments, activities and games in a fun, safe environment. Equally important is the opportunity to expose students to a college campus at a very young age. Students from any school district are welcome to attend Kids on Campus, and high school students from all county districts volunteer to help out with the program.

Classes are one week sessions from 10 a.m. to noon or 1 to 3 p.m., at Ohio Christian University, 1476 Lancaster Pike (State Route 22), in Circleville. Signs will be posted on campus to direct families to the proper classroom locations. Tuition is $35 per class session, which includes materials and a camp t-shirt.
