Waubonsee Offers Summer Programs for Kids

Two young boys work together to put together a robot using Lego blocks.
Lego Robotics is just one of 15 weeklong camps that will be offered this summer as part of Waubonsee Community College’s Xcelerate enrichment program for children ages 4 to 17. For a complete schedule or to register, visit www.waubonsee.edu/xcelerate.

Whether they want to make a movie, create a video game or become a rock star, children ages 4 to 17 are invited to explore their interests this summer with Waubonsee Community College’s Xcelerate enrichment program. The program features 15 different weeklong classes that range from $59 to $219. Most 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, or the Kendall County Outdoor Education Center.

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 programs for preschoolers, including “My Size Science,” “Digging for Dinosaurs” and “How Things Work.”
