Will Victoria College be offering Kids College again this summer?

You bet! Crossroad area children will have the opportunity to learn something new and have fun at the same time. The summer program runs June 3-Aug. 2 throughout the Victoria College Main Campus.

Each of the science, art, archaeology and forensic investigation classes cost $95, and the basketball and volleyball skills camps are $65 each.

"We have another exciting lineup of summer activities for area youth," said Sherri Pall, Victoria College Workforce & Continuing Education director. "This is a great opportunity for them to learn something new, explore a hobby and make new friends."

Children interested in art can sign up for the Abra Dabra Cadoodle! class and learn how to paint using various mediums and techniques. In Origami & Paper Quilling, students can discover how to take a flat piece of paper and turn it into a three-dimensional shape.

For the science-minded youngsters, there is It's Not Just Rocket Science!, in which they can explore the solar system and launch a rocket. Kids can explore earthquakes, volcanoes and geysers and discover how the human body reacts to change in Boom! Pop! Fizz! Weird Science!

Learning the importance of Internet safety, as well as the basics of Photoshop, Word and Excel in Fun with Technology.

History buffs will get their fill in Buried "Treasure:" Archaeology! in the Museum of the Coastal Bend. There, they can learn how we know about people's lives hundreds or thousands of years ago and what broken pots and garbage can tell us. Also at the museum, kids can discover how people long ago explored and settled Texas in Exploring New Lands.

Budding athletes can learn skills, basic mechanics fundamentals and teamwork in the Basketball Skills Camp and Volleyball Skills Camp.

In CSI for Kids, youngsters can, with help from a Victoria Police Department officer, solve an imaginary crime from clues left at the scene.

What a way to spend a summer.
