Looking for something to keep the kids busy this summer?
Bucks County Community College's Kids on Campus program has more than 200 summer camp options for children ages 5 to 13.
Registration is now open for the various day camps, which range from athletics to crafts and academics. Camps run from June 24 through Aug. 16 and are held on the Newtown Campus.
Interested families can learn more about the Kids on Campus program at an open house on March 16 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Newtown Campus.
During the open house, which will be held in the Gallagher Room of the Rollins Center, parents and kids can meet instructors and camp leaders, sample activities and ask questions.
New camps this summer include Digital Video II, Hogwarts II, Electronic Excitement, Kid Biz Camp and Fitness Fun, according to information from BCCC. "Other popular programs are back, such as American Girl camp, Underwater ROVers, Brilliant Bridge Builders, Kid Kuisine, mountain biking, skateboarding and lacrosse," a BCCC press release said.
Kids on Campus is nationally accredited by the American Camp Association.
"ACA accreditation verifies that a camp has complied with up to 300 standards for health, safety, and program quality. It assures parents that the camp has had a regular, independent safety audit that goes beyond regulations in most states," a BCCC press release said.
Camps are held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Newtown campus. Before- and after-camp care is available for an additional charge. Most camps are a week long.
A 10 percent discount is available if a registration is paid in full by April 1. For a full camp calendar and registration information, visit www.bucks.edu/kidsoncampus. To register, call 215-968-8409.
