Ivy Tech's summer camp to feature history and mixed-media art classes

June 4, 2009

Ivy Tech’s annual College for Kids summer camp will let students wear warrior armor, create model airplanes and interview soldier heroes.

This year, the camp features three new history classes, on ancient Greece, the Roman Empire and World War II. There is also a new abstract mixed-media art class called Discover the Artist in You.

Students between 11 and 14 can still sign up for summer camp, which is offered in three, one-week sessions. The cost for each session is $180, which covers all classroom materials but not lunch. Students are asked to bring a sack lunch each day.

Sessions begin June 15, June 22 and July 6. Registration closes one week before each session begins.

Ivy Tech’s Center for Lifelong Learning partnered with the city of Bloomington Parks and Recreation’s Kid City program again this summer to provide the camp. Classes are held in the morning, and then Ivy Tech takes campers to Rhino’s Youth Center for lunch, followed by an afternoon of games, field trips or swimming.

Curt Shedlak, a sixth-grade social studies teacher at Binford Elementary School, will teach the new history classes.

Other classes still with open seats include Emergency Medical Mania, Model Rocketry, Pick and Strum, Crime Solvers, Time Capsule and Radical Robots.
