Kids on Campus – Bucks County Community College’s nationally accredited day camp program – invites children, parents, and caregivers to an open house at the Newtown campus Saturday, March 15.
The open house, which takes place from 10 a.m. to noon in rooms 202-203 of the Allied Health Building, is a chance to learn about the more than 160 programs for children ages five years to teens. Parents and kids can meet instructors and camp leaders, sample activities, and ask questions.
Registration is now open for the popular day camps, all of which have an educational component. Topics range from athletics and sports, to crafts and academics. New camps include Video Production, Introduction to Model Railroading, Volleyball Academy, and Junior Lifeguarding. Other popular programs are back, such as Kid Kuisine, Mountain Biking and Disc Golf, Lego Animation, Totally Skateboard, and Beginner’s Lacrosse.
Kids on Campus is nationally accredited by the American Camp Association. ACA accreditation verifies that a camp has complied with up to 300 standards for health, safety, and program quality. It assures parents that the camp has had a regular, independent safety audit that goes beyond regulations in most states. As part of the accreditation process, the ACA collaborates with the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other agencies to assure that practices reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation.
Camps are held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Newtown campus, located at 275 Swamp Rd., Newtown. Most are one week in length, giving a family the freedom to choose among many programs yet still have time for a family vacation. In cooperation with the Tri-Hampton YMCA, before- and after-camp care is available for an additional charge.
An early-bird 10% discount is available if a registration is paid in full by April 1 and made by fax, phone, or U.S. mail. Web registration is also available
Scholarships are available. Application deadline is March 28, 2014.
