Kent offers youth fun and learning in the summer


KENT, Ohio – For more that 27 years, Kent State University’s summer youth programs – Kent for Kids and Teens in Recreation and Enrichment at Kent – have engaged youth in recreation, enrichment and fun.

Registration. The summer youth programs consist of four two-week sessions beginning June 16 and ending August 8. An early registration day will be held May 3, at the College of Continuing Studies, 204 Michael Schwartz Center, on the Kent State campus.

The cost per child varies depending on the number of classes in which the child is enrolled.

Participants can explore arts, crafts and hobbies through classes experimenting with painting, paper mache, molding, sewing, scrapbooking and jewelry, and young artists can choose courses in graphic design, cartooning techniques, and creating wearable art.

Something for everyone. Young performers can learn dance, music and theatre arts through a variety of classes designed for all age levels. Students can discover plant and animal life, conduct physics experiments, design Web pages or star in their own teleproductions, and learn to understand math, science and technology as it is used in everyday life.

Participants can enhance their skills in reading and math, learn a foreign language or focus on poetry or news writing. Budding athletes can sharpen their athletic skills or learn new sports and games with archery, fencing, swimming, basketball, karate and many more.
