College for Kids @ Yavapai College

Summer Fun on the VV Campus  
Don’t wait for your kids to be bored a few days after Memorial Day, sign up today for College for Kids!  
For more than a decade the Yavapai College Verde Valley Campus has sponsored this exciting program that blends fun with facts through hands-on learning adventures. During the months of June and July the campus will be energized with innovative programs for children age five through 17.  
Many subjects feature three levels of classes, grouped by age to maximize each participant’s learning experience.  
Many favorite summer classes return including magic theater, ceramics, robotics, painting and field-trip based adventures focusing on local geology and environmental education.  
This year’s College for Kids program also offers new boredom busters including collage and three-dimensional art, ukulele, origami, “zumbatomic” (a fast-paced music fitness class for kids), animal tracking and science smorgasbord, taught by a team of Verde Valley Campus science faculty members.  
To access course descriptions and schedules please go to the Yavapai College website at http://www.yc.edu, and click on Lifelong Learners and go to College for Kids Verde.  
Please check the website daily for new classes. Enroll early! Classes are limited to 15 or fewer students and they fill up quickly!  
Classes are offered during two, three-week sessions: Session 1 runs from June 7 – 24 and Session 2 runs from July 6 – 22. Thanks to our community partners, scholarship money is available to assist those who want to attend these fun and educational classes.  
Registration can be completed online when paying with a credit card.  
The program is directed by Campus Activities Coordinator Martha Mays and Student Affairs Assistant Joni Westcott.
