The mission of Kids’ University is to provide a safe and wholesome environment for kids to come and enjoy their summer. Campers will have daily opportunities to learn and have incredible amounts of FUN through diverse activities! Each week has its own special theme which instructors, guest speakers and visitors bring to life. Planned activities for each theme will be age-appropriate, varying in content based on the age of the child. The teachers who work for Kids’ University are our biggest asset. Their special interest in today’s youth and their enthusiasm are what make Kids’ University a wonderful experience. Licensed teachers, recent graduates, community professionals, and university students combine their experience, talents and personalities to make a unique experience each year.

Campers must be comfortable in the water and able to swim unassisted. They may use floaties or life jackets. Minimum water depth is four feet. Kids’ University will provide one daily snack and drinks throughout each day. Also, students will receive a souvenir for each week of attendance. Children should bring their own sack lunch and additional snacks, if desired. Register for one week, all six remaining weeks or any combination of weeks. Registration is on a first-paid, first-enrolled basis. Children will not be guaranteed a place in Kids’ University until the registration fee is paid.

When I Grow Up

Color War!

July 8-12 We’re sure you’ve been asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” This week we’ll help you explore the answer to that question! You’ll get to visit with people in many different professions and learn how their job contributes to our community. Find out why your school teachers work so hard to teach you biology, math, history and more! See how many professionals use the information they learned in school every day to do their job! You’ll also dress up as what you would like to be when you grow up!

July 22-26 Which team will you be on? Green or blue? What will the theme be? When the competition begins, no one knows, but the “break out” of the games will be exciting and sure to surprise you! Color wars are a long time summer camp tradition all over the country, and we’re bringing it to Kids’ University! Of course, it’s not really a war. It’s actually 5 days of ridiculous FUN and games! The entire camp is split into teams, and each team will have a theme to follow. You’ll create songs, costumes, team spirit banners and more to cheer your team on. In the end, even after a week of fun competition (swim races, obstacle courses, silly games, etc.), we remind our campers that we’re not at war and the camp will unite as one at the final ceremony.

Fee: $99

Fee: $129

It’s a Mystery Activate

July 1-5 (July 4 is a holiday) Did you know that staying active does wonders for you? It’s amazing! Staying active can do so much more than strengthen your bones and muscles! It can help you build a strong immune system, strengthen your heart and lungs, give you more energy, and improve memory and concentration! All you have to do is play! You’ll swim, dance, run, jump, climb, skate and throw. Your body is an amazing machine and it needs daily maintenance including the right food. Learn how to choose the right fuel to keep your body and brain running in high gear. You’ll also take a trip to visit some of our town’s favorite places where we can get active!

July 15-19 Mysterious things are happening this week at Kids’ U, and we need your help to solve them! Come and join our Kids’ University detective team! Use your observation skills, collect fingerprints, follow the tracks and analyze handwriting to gather the clues to unravel the many mysteries at camp this week. Campers will participate in scavenger hunts and will also learn how archaeology and paleontology have uncovered the mysteries of the past. Rising 4th through 7th graders will visit the Ocmulgee Indian Mounds in Macon. Fee: Grades K-3: $99 Grades 4-7: $129

Fee: $99

Camp Rewind July 29-Aug. 2 Not ready for summer to end? Good, because we’re not either! You’re going to squeeze in one more week of summer fun at Kids’ University! You’ll play your favorite Kids’ U games, swim one more week at the pool and spend time with your camp friends before going back to school. You’ll end the summer with many of your favorite activities from weeks past, and don’t forget our end of camp party on Friday! Fee: $99

Fee: $99

Georgia College Theatre Camp (Ages 8-14) The curtain is going up on a week filled with the excitement and magic of theatre! Do you dream of standing in the spotlight on opening night, of seeing yourself on television or in the movies, of hearing the applause of an audience? Share your dreams with other children just like you who love theatre and the performing arts! At Georgia College’s Theatre Camp, performers of all levels – beginner through advanced – find expression and fulfillment on stage! But, as you already know, there is a lot more to putting on a show than acting. You will spend time making your own costumes and designing and creating your own props (all materials are provided!). You will be totally immersed in theatre – plus you’ll have all of the fun of a great summer camp. Recreation and pool time are added bonuses in the afternoons. Snacks will be provided but you must bring your own “brown bag” lunch each day, as well as a digital camera if you have one. There will be a free culminating performance of the show on Friday, and you will perform because everyone is cast in the show! A signed waiver of liability and an emergency contact form are required.

The educational focus of our programs makes us completely different from a commercial travel tour. However, there are no grades or tests on Road Scholar programs. All that’s needed are an inquiring mind, an adventurous spirit and the belief that learning and discovery are lifelong pursuits. Take a look – we would love for you to join Georgia College at one of our programs!

Program Overview

Hours

The Pharmacy Technician Online Certification Training Program was developed in response to a rising need for trained technicians to work in hospital or retail pharmacies. With this growing opportunity, however, has also come increased responsibility, and this increased responsibility has made certification an important issue for many industry employers and some state legislatures. This program will prepare you for entry-level pharmacy technician positions by teaching you medical and pharmaceutical terminology, basic anatomy related to the pharmacology of medications and pharmaceutical calculations. The Pharmacy Technician Program will give you hands-on practice in retail pharmacy procedures through an online lab module. You'll learn what information is necessary to process prescriptions and physician orders and apply that knowledge to fill mock prescriptions. The curriculum also includes the ethics of pharmacy practice and education about prescription medications, patient care and interaction and charges and reimbursement. Upon completion of this program, you’ll be prepared to pass the National Certification Exam offered by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board.

First Aid

CPR/AED Certification for Adults, Children and Infants CPR is an emergency procedure used to revive an adult, child or infant who has stopped breathing and/or whose heart isn’t beating. Such incidences can occur following drownings, heart attacks or strokes, severe allergic reactions and electrocutions, or may be due to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).

Accidents happen and the information and skills you learn in this course can be used anywhere! You will learn to recognize and care for victims of life-threatening emergencies and sudden illnesses or injuries. Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive the American Red Cross First Aid certification card which is good for three years. This course meets OSHA requirements and is accredited by The American Red Cross. A text is included in the cost. You must be at least 15 years old to take this course. Course #14240101 Monday • Sept. 23 • 6-8:30 p.m. • 102 Chappell Hall Fee: $59 • 1 Session • Instructor: Ed Smith

SCA is caused by problems with the heart's electrical system causing irregular heartbeats resulting in the heart stopping. If SCA is the emergency, once CPR has been performed and the heart is beating again, the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can restore a normal beat to a heart. These portable AED devices are often found in public places, such as shopping malls, golf courses, businesses, airports, airplanes, casinos, convention centers, hotels, sports venues and schools. This OSHA approved Red Cross course gives you, wherever you are, the knowledge and skills necessary to recognize and care for such injuries and sudden illnesses. Instruction includes Adult, Child and Infant CPR and AED training. Upon successful completion, you will receive a 2-year certification from the American Red Cross. You must be at least 15 years old to take the course. Course #14240201 Monday • Sept. 30 • 5:30-9:30 p.m. • 102 Chappell Hall Fee: $69 • 1 Session • Instructor: Ed Smith
