NCTC offers summer camp for kids

Angel Fitzpatrick | Jun 1, 2018

Adult and Continuing Education (ACE), the non-credit division of North Central Texas College, invites kids aged six to 14 to participate in this summer’s Kids College of Fun. ACE will be offering classes at both the NCTC Gainesville and Corinth campuses starting in June.

“We want to give kids fun and interactive things to do that are also educational,” said Program Coordinator Lori Dunn. “All classes are set up for six- to 14-year-olds and will be divided into two classes for the different age groups.”

New this year in the Wacky, Weird, Science! category is a drone class, offered in July at both the Gainesville and Corinth campuses. Students will learn FAA rules regarding drones, get hands-on training to fly a drone and will receive a drone with their $109 tuition. Space is limited to a maximum of 20 students and the deadline to register is July 22nd.

In addition, students at each campus will have an opportunity to put their slime abilities to the test with the first-ever slime contest. “Students will practice with different ingredients to make the best slime ever, and at the end of the week, their slime will be judged on a number of factors and the winning student will be crowned King or Queen of Slime,” said Dunn.

The Kids College of Fun comprises cool classes for everyone, including painting, languages, photography, geology, horticulture, dance, business, creative writing and more. Classes range from one day to one week, with tuition ranging from $0 (Strategic Games) to $109.
