Lee aims to keep kids active and engaged this summer

BAYTOWN, TX – The Center for Workforce and Community Development at Lee College is offering summer camp programs to give kids and teens an active, engaged, and healthy summer. The Kids at College Summer Camp Program offers children ages 5-17 an opportunity to meet new friends, discover new interests, and create memories for a lifetime.

Lee College encourages parents to register their children for any of the hands-on, educational, creative, or athletic camps offered in both Baytown and Liberty, Texas. Camps offered will include creative/art courses, career exploration, brain training, teen courses, sports, and more.

“The 2018 Kids at College Summer Camp Program is a wonderful opportunity for children to keep their bodies and minds active,” said Angela Oriano, Ph.D., Vice President Workforce & Corporate Partnerships. “Each camp is an adventure that offers personal growth for our community’s youth. Our campers walk away with new skills, increased confidence, and more independence that stay with them throughout their lives.”

The 2018 Summer Camp Guide is now updated with new camps and available online for viewing at www.lee.edu/kids. The guide provides parents with all the information they need to decide on a summer camp, including descriptions, camp dates/times, locations, and pricing. Camps vary in dates, start/end times, and prices, to allow parents to find a camp that fits their schedule and budget, along with their child’s interests.

Some popular camps from last year scheduled to return for 2018 include Art Extreme Camp, Culinary Arts, Creative Writing, Fun and Funky Clay Creations, Volleyball, and Basketball. Many new camps will be available including Advanced 3D Video Game, Healthy Me, Little Code-a-Pillar, Virtual Reality: The Future is now, and Vision Board Fun, just to name a few. New this year to the Baytown location is Camp Z, a zombie-inspired kids’ camp complete with science experiments, creative writing, arts and crafts, a scavenger hunt, a live-action zombie hunt, and more.
