Summer is right around the corner, and it’s not too early to be thinking about camp.

The College of Continuing and Professional Education at Kennesaw State University is now enrolling for Summer University-Kids Camps where kids experience learning and enjoyment.

From June 2 through July 25, one-week camps are offered at SummerU for rising first through 12th-grade students.

Though the camps are educational, the atmosphere is lively and fun. Assistant Dean Michelle Girage said SummerU, “keeps (campers’) minds working all summer long and they make great friends and have a blast.”

A record number of more than 800 campers attended SummerU in 2013.

Campers can expect new as well as returning popular camps such as Creating Your Own Web Page, Genetics Crime Buster, Biology Treasure Hunt, Stop-Motion Movie Making, Baking for Teens, Fitness & Team Building, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Re-Purposed Yard Art and Rocks Galore.

New this year is the addition of Chinese and Spanish mini-camps from 3 to 6 p.m.

Back by popular demand for its second year is the Chet Austin Teen Leadership Academy. Team building, community service and public speaking are all slated for this weeklong session named for the former CEO of Tip Top Poultry in Marietta.

“SummerU gives parents an option for education during the summer months,” said Girage, an Acworth resident.

“(Campers) come back year after year, many become camp assistants and some even go on to teach for us. Once you are in, you become a part of our family,” Girage said.

Each Friday until the camps start, look for Facebook “Freebie Friday” contest/promotion. Correct answers to posted trivia answers gets participants a chance to win prizes such as commemorative SummerU T-shirts. Visit Facebook.com/SummerUniversityKSU or search for #FreebieFriday.
