From animation to athletics, horsemanship to robotics, and scuba to improv comedy, Tyler Junior College has a summer camp to spark the imagination of any young explorer.
Registration is open now for TJC Summer Camps for kids ages 3 and up. Camps begin Monday, June 3, and continue through mid-August.
“We have a great lineup of activity and athletic summer camps,” said Heath Stoner, director of TJC’s Ornelas Health & Physical Education Center. Stoner also oversees the college’s summer camps.
“TJC camps offer great opportunities for kids to gain skills to succeed in sports and learn about other cultures through art, science and technology,” he said, “but they’re also often a kid’s first opportunity to spend time on a college campus. Ultimately, we hope our campers are inspired to pursue a college career someday.”
The camps are operated at several locations on the TJC campus, including the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at TJC, Wagstaff and Gentry gyms, the Ornelas HPE Center, art department, science labs and swimming pool.
