Mercer County Community College’s Camp College is one of the surest signs that it’s summertime. This year will mark the 32nd anniversary of Camp College taking over the grounds at MCCC with fun and engaging programs for children with varied interests, ages 6 to 16.
In fact, it’d be tough to not find a camp your kids will love. Camp College offers everything from swimming and juggling to science and computers; from arts and crafts to archaeology; from fishing and rock climbing to culinary arts.
Looking to give your child a boost through academic summer camps? Camp College has you covered there too. Or what about Sea Camp? Or Golf? Or Visual Arts? Yep. Camp College offers these programs and more, over nine fun weeks, from June 20 through August 19. On campus, or through field trips, campers get the most of their summer days.
“There’s something for everyone here,” says Rose Fiorello, Director of Youth & Special Programs at Mercer County Community College. “And we’re much more affordable than so many other camps. We hear that all the time.”
Camp College’s “design your own schedule” approach lets you and your campers choose half-day and full-day camps, and allows you to mix and match. Your child can’t decide between culinary arts (very popular, by the way) and computer science? Then do both ‒‒ one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
Camp College’s mission, after all, is to provide the finest camp experience for children, and to build memories that will be remembered for a lifetime. With an emphasis on hands-on activities and fun, Camp College offers children the opportunity to achieve, to develop self-esteem and self-confidence, to grow, and, most importantly, to try new things.
One new thing this year is the Berlitz Intensive English camp for those looking to build their English language skills. This camp even has international appeal, as MCCC is working to bring campers from China over to attend.
Each camp is overseen by a highly qualified staff, featuring certified school teachers, guidance counselors, and school nurses, and Camp College features more than 100 great counselors and staff members.
MCCC offers additional before- and after-camp care if you need to drop your child off before you go to work or can’t get back when your camper’s day ends. Your child can come as early as 7:15 a.m. or stay as late as 6 p.m. And don’t worry, there’s a host of supervised activities to keep your camper occupied, including a recreational swim period from 4 to 5:15 p.m.
