CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College’s Kids and College program offers new and innovative programs that provide a fun experience for grade school and high school students, giving them a jump-start on the school year, exposure to 21st-century skills, and an introduction to careers.
Building a city or dream house, testing an animated theme park ride and becoming a science myth buster are just a few activities campers will be engaged in while participating in MCC TECH Camp.
This full-day S.T.E.M.(Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) camp is offered six different weeks throughout the summer and is a way to expose students to engineering fields, develop creative and critical thinking skills, work with a local artist, and participate in team building/sports while forging friendships. Campers entering first through ninth grades can attend a weeklong camp from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for $149.
The Kids and College Summer Academy academic and enrichment classes have been designed to continue the learning over the summer in the areas of language arts, math, technology, and study skills. The classes are offered in the morning from 9 a.m. to noon and in the afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m. with an opportunity to stay for lunch. The tuition for a weeklong class is $99 and a two-week class is $149.
