WCC to offer summer programs for kids

By on May 27, 2013

SUGAR GROVE—Whether they want to make a movie, create a video game or cook up delicious meals, children ages 4 to 14 are invited to explore their interests this summer with Waubonsee Community College’s Xcelerate enrichment program.

The program will feature 20 different week-long classes that range from $69 to $179. Most classes run Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m. at one of five locations: Waubonsee’s Sugar Grove, Aurora and Plano Campuses, West Aurora High School and Hun- toon Stables in North Aurora.

The Lego Robotics session is back again this year, and is a highlight of the science and technology lineup, which also includes a computer camp where students will explore office software, web design and flash animation.

Gaming and digital arts courses focus on the creation of video games or movies, while children can create a delicious meal or the next clothing trend in the cooking and fashion design camps, respectively. New this year are oppor- tunities for children to learn how to ride a horse, play the ukulele or practice the art of Kung Fu. In their camps, preschoolers can dig for dinosaurs, learn how things work, explore space or create paintings and sculptures based on the work of famous artists.
