For more than 30 years, Midland College (MC) has been offering Kids’ College, a summer enrichment program for students who will be completing the 1st through 6th grades. On Monday, June 5, Session I of Kids’ College 2017 will begin, and approximately 600 children will be participating in the many activities, camps and classes on the MC main campus, Midland Community Theatre, Sibley Nature Center and/or COM Aquatics.

“The entire campus community looks forward to having these children in our classrooms and outside on our campus grounds,” said Brenda Cordero, associate director of Community Programs Continuing Education. “This morning, our Grounds Department has been busy getting the campus ready for the various sports classes. Large tents are being installed in the center of campus to accommodate snacks. During the last day of each session, we have special games and activities planned. Summer is always a fun time at MC!”

Session I of Kids’ College is June 5-15, and Session II runs June 19-29. Cordero explained that most classes are offered in three time slots—12:40-2:00 p.m., 2:10-3:30 p.m. and 3:40-5:00 p.m. A snack is served each day between 3:30 and 3:40 p.m.

Parents can drop off and pick up children at the Allison Fine Arts Building. Specific information is available at www.midland.edu/kc. Because of the West Texas summer heat, college personnel advise Kids’ College participants to bring water and wear sunscreen and a hat or cap marked with the child’s first and last name.

The Kids’ College Office is located in Portable Building 7A behind the Physical Education Building on the main MC campus. Kids’ College personnel can be contacted at (432) 685-4518 or (432) 686-4242.
