Welding, Lego, and Police Academy Summer Camps at Kirtland Community College

Who doesn’t love a great summer camp?

We know kids do. And we know parents REALLY do. These summer college camps are the best of both worlds!

Mom. Dad. If you’ve got a smart, inquisitive little cookie in grades 3-8, we’ve got some great options to keep those brains working while school is out. Have your kid pull up a chair and check out the cool stuff they could be doing this summer.

But wait! There are some great options for your 9th-12th grade student as well. They could be taking their future for a test drive in some great college camps that let them try a career on for size. Chat with them or —  even better — send them this link and let them explore a little on their own.

It’s not too early; it’s not too late. If you are a high-school student (or going to be one this fall), we’d love to see you in a camp on one of our campuses!

Summer is almost here. It’s time to fit some fun into your summer!

  • Cost for each camp is $10 (Lego camps are $20/each)
