Summer break hasn’t stopped kids of various ages from learning on the Iowa Central campus and more.
Already through June, campers have taken on understanding the use of momentum, launch and impact, science and agriculture with more to come.
The volunteers and superheroes camp will take place June 30 at the Webster County Fairgrounds. Campers will give back to the community while learning with special guest speakers, hands-on activities, games and more.
“Seeing the smiles on the faces of each kid says it all,” said Megan Kruse, work-based learning coordinator at Iowa Central Career Connections. “We are wrapping up our elementary and middle school summer camps and appreciate the community support by allowing their children to attend. The students made several comments on how awesome it was to attend face-to-face and meet new friends.
“They also love taking home the handmade crafts they create in our camps. The parents have also been very appreciative.”
On July 7 and 9, the light and geometry camp will explore through reflection, solar furnace and cooking eggs.
All of the 2021 summer camps are free of charge. Participants must sign up to be eligible to attend and there is an enrollment camp on each camp. There is also a limit of one camp per person.
“We highly enjoy providing educational, hands-on summer camps for our area students,” Kruse said. “We were excited to be able to provide face-to-face camps this year after a tough year of only doing them via Zoom.”

I chose Iowa Central because of the low cost of tuition and it was close to home.
