Harness the power of technology at Rochester Institute of Technologyís summer programs for kids. Kids on Campus and Lil Kids on Campus offer weeks of challenging and exciting summer activities for children entering grades one through 10.
Students can create awesome animations, direct a movie, render 3-D machine designs into animated clips, swim in the new Gordon Field House and Activities Center and scale a 32-foot climbing wall in the Red Barn.
Session one runs July 6-16 and session two runs July 19-30. Students can register for one or both sessions in either the full-day program, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., or the extended-day program until 5 p.m. A new meal plan option is available this year.
Registration for session one is $360 for the full day and $475 for the extended day, with a $60 meal plan option for both. Session two costs $400 for the full day and $500 for the extended day, with a $70 meal plan option for both options.
Program activities have a weekly theme and children can enroll for the whole summer or week by week. Weekly sessions include visiting the RIT radio station, cooking up fun foods and creating a cookbook, visiting RITís art gallery and creating graphics and digital art, exploring nature and digital photography, creating an electronic newsletter, designing fantasy maps, and telling multimedia tales.
Children will also swim daily in the Gordon Field House and Activities Center.
Registration fee is $175 per one-week session. For more information on Lil Kids on Campus, contact Margaretís House at 475-5176 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
