Parkland College is once again hosting summer fun and learning opportunities for area youth, as registration opens for its 2021 College for Kids and Summer Discovery camps.
Registration begins Monday, February 15 for elementary, middle, and high school students. An early bird discount of $15 per registered class is available until March 12 for College for Kids.
Hosted by Parkland College Community Education, the popular two-week, half-day College for Kids camp offers around 50 different enrichment classes for students ages 7-13, with subjects ranging from robotics, coding, and engineering to visual, culinary, and performing arts.
The Summer Discovery program includes exciting camps for youth ages 10-18, designed to challenge students while they have fun. Students will explore new interests and potential careers in interactive, hands-on courses.
All classes are taught by professional educators in small class sizes, providing personalized attention for each student. The innovative STEAM-model gives students of all ages the opportunity to explore something new, get excited about learning, and discover new interests and hobbies in a safe and comfortable environment.
Camps will be offered in online and in-person formats. Social distancing guidelines and safety precautions established by the Center for Disease Control and Illinois Department of Public Health will be observed in all on-campus classes.
Registrations are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Summer Discovery camps run for 1 or 2 weeks, depending on the camp, and usually meet from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. A few half-day options are available. Camps begin June 7 and run through July 30. Registration deadlines vary by camp.
Two sessions are offered for CFK: June 21–July 1 (Session I) with a registration deadline of June 7; and July 12–22 (Session II) with a registration deadline of June 28. CFK classes meet Monday through Thursday at 12:45 p.m.–2:45 p.m. and 3 p.m.–5 p.m.
