Kids' College

Kids' College is a self-supporting program featuring high quality, educational programs for young people in our community, generally presented in a series of one and two-day workshops for children ages 7-15. Some summer workshops may run up to 5 days.

Each Kids' College class is designed around a specific theme and offers parents, children and even grandparents opportunities to spend quality time together while exploring fun and enriching activities. Our program offers a stimulating learning environment, engaging activities and provides a chance to meet other kids who have the same interests. Small classes and professional instructors will make this an experience that you and your kids won't want to miss! Check out our course schedule for class availability.
