Registration Open for Kids In College

| April 24, 2008

What could be more fun than heaving rocks with catapults or trebuchets like ancient warriors? Or learning to swordfight? Or turning things found in nature into works of art? Or learning to tap dance, knit or play soccer? Or speak Russian?

“Soccer Fun with Coach Fabulich” is on the KIC schedule this year.

These and other interesting subjects will be offered at the sixth-annual Kids In College, a week-long enrichment program for current third through eighth grade students, June 16-20 at Sweet Briar College.

The half-day program runs from 9 a.m. to noon each day, and classes are small – 10 to 16 students. Comprised of SBC faculty, staff and alumnae and other local professionals, KIC instructors build upon each day’s activities to provide a thorough exploration of the topic.

This year, there are 24 classes to choose from, and students select two in which to participate for the week. New or returning offerings this year include Russian for Kids, Learning to Play the Harp, Nature’s Notebook, Storytelling, The Art and Science of Swordfighting, Fun with Flight: Airplanes and Rockets, Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing, Nature Writing, Hands-on Economics and Make Art with Nature.

Kids in the catapult class have fun launching projectiles.

Registration is $80 per child, which includes a KIC T-shirt and all classroom supplies. The lone exception to this is an additional $5 fee required for the swordfighting class.

Deadline for registration is Friday, May 30, and classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, registration forms and course descriptions, visit the Kids In College Web page or contact Pam Simpson at 381-6443 or[email protected].
