College for Kids received $3,000 from the Lake Region Arts Council for the Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage grant. The grant will be used to provide scholarships and funding for College for Kids art classes. This activity is funded by the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008.

College for Kids is a summer day camp program for children ages 8 to 14. The classes offered encourage exploration, adventure and creativity while cultivating young people’s understanding and appreciation for a variety of topics. Session themes include various art topics and techniques, crafts, fitness and sports, nature, science and technology, and space exploration.

The purpose of the program is to introduce children to a campus environment, provide experiences that are intellectually enriching and expose them to future career options in the areas of science, fine arts, visual arts, and sports. The program runs July 9–12 and July 16–19, offering morning and afternoon classes.
