CFK SUMMER FUN IN 2021 COMING SOON!
College for Kids (CFK) is a two week enrichment camp where kids, ages 8-13, explore, create, code and imagine! Our small classes offer the opportunity to experience learning in fun, innovative ways with hands-on, interactive classes. Many classes are designed using a STEAM model, while others offer young students experiences to explore potential careers, or help students develop and build key skills for the future. CFK will challenge young students to try new experiences while making new friends! All classes are taught by professional educators and offer a collaborative learning environment.
