Don’t let summer idle by when your kids could be learning something new. Affordable and educational summer camps and classes are happening at College of Lake County (CLC). Students in first grade through high school have a wide variety of weekly camps they will benefit from socially and academically. Registration starts March 15.

These camps cleverly disguise academic enrichment as fun. LEGO workshops, storytelling, engineering and film making are just some of the sessions being prepared for this summer.

High school students enjoy career exploration camps where they sample careers before committing to a course of study. Most of these classes are taught in lab classrooms, just like the regular college classes by CLC instructors. They are the perfect way for teens to test-drive a career before they commit. SAT prep study classes are also available.

“Before they head to college, your student can use the summertime to consider careers in nursing, culinary, digital media and design, criminal justice and so many more fields through CLC’s camps,” said Executive Director of Community Programming Roneida Martin. “They are interactive, hands-on and informative.”

Camps start the first week of June and run through the end of July, with no camps during the week of July 4. CLC is offering both in-person and virtual options for families who want flexibility. Camps are one-week long, either morning or afternoon. They take place at both the Grayslake and Lakeshore Campuses.

The Explore and Engage summer experiences cost less than $250 and will fill up fast. Register early online at
