Join us for three fun camps during
College for Kids: Spring Break 2018!

All camps are during the Lee's Summit School District's Spring Break week and run Monday-Thursday, 1-4 p.m.

Chess from Pawn to King
Ages 5-16
Class #61536
Students of all levels, from absolute beginner to advanced player, will enjoy learning chess in this challenging and dynamic program. Certified chess instructors will guide you through important rules, chess etiquette, strategy, tactics and more. Research says chess improves students' scores on math, reading, memory and overall intelligence, so take your seat at the table and check your skills!
Instructor: Kansas City Chess Club
Mon.-Thurs., March 19-22, 1-4 p.m.
Fee - $140


Kids Photography

Ages 7-14
Class #61537
Learn to take pictures with whatever camera you have – point and shoot, phone, film or digital. We talk about holding the camera; checking the background; experimentation; zooming in and out; taking pictures of people, things and places; rule of thirds; focal points and more. Our hands-on approach helps kids retain the information and students take home a handout reviewing the lessons.
Instructor: Debra Lawrence
Mon.-Thurs., March 19-22, 1-4 p.m.
Fee - $140


OOeey Gooey Gross Science

Ages 7-12
Class #61540
Life is full of slippery, slimy, gooey and gassy stuff! Campers will get into science up to their elbows as we investigate DNA, digestion, chemical reactions, electrochemical reactions and mucus that are all part of what makes life possible!
Instructor: Mad Science
Mon.-Thurs., March 19-22, 1-4 p.m.
Fee - $140


Stay tuned for our summer 2018 College For Kids program, which provides half-day and full-day camps that run during June and July (with no classes the week of July 4th). Classes are held Monday-Thursday.  These classes are designed to offer fun learning opportunities to children between the ages of four and 16. College for Kids 2018 will run June 4-August 2.

We will be offering two special camps this year:

  • A two-week, daily musical performance camp featuring Disney's The Lion King, Jr. This camp, open to students who have completed 3rd-8th grade, will be staffed by Lee’s Summit West and Summit Theatre Group. Limited to 40 students.
  • The Youth Chorus of Kansas City will be offering 2018 Summer Sing, a week-long program that will introduce students to the group singing experience!

Due to popular demand, we have added some camps for younger ages, so don't miss those and more in our 2018 brochure that will be available in mid-April. You can check out the 2017 College for Kids brochure (pdf) if you would like an idea of the types of camps we offer.
