Want to help your kids dodge the summer blahs? Try UNCG’s All Arts, Sciences & Technology Camp. Four weeklong sessions are scheduled this summer across North Carolina and Virginia for children ages seven to 15.

“We offer a high-energy, fun-filled program that will get your kids off the sofa and into action,” says Matt Fisher, Camp curriculum director. “The schedule blends highly interactive classes with recreation and entertainment so campers stay fully engaged.”

UNCG has a long and successful track record in summer programs for kids. Last year the University enrolled approximately 1,200 campers from seven states.

Each weeklong session is designed to make learning fun – with classes that range from the science of super heroes to the magical world of Harry Potter. Kids have an opportunity to make movies, explore flight, solve crimes or become a t-shirt tycoon. Parents can even catch a sneak peak throughout the week by visiting the Camp Flickr site, where daily photos are posted.

Though a day-only option is available, most campers stay on campus for the week. They are supervised by a team of counselors and instructors – including outstanding public and private school teachers, graduate students, and area artists and scientists. The Camp maintains a staff to camper ratio of approximately one to five.

Sessions are offered this summer at the following sites:

  •     NC State University in Raleigh, N.C., July 8-13
  •     George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., July 15-20
  •     UNCG in Greensboro, N.C., July 22-27
  •     Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., July 29-August 3
