Umpqua Community College is going to be hosting the Roseburg Summer Fun camps for children from first to tenth grade starting on June 19. These camps are set up by UCC’s Coordinator of Personal Enrichment, Candice Van Loon. Van Loon has run the camps by herself for the past two years; however, the camps have been a part of UCC for eight years.
This year, the camps for children grades first through third will include themes of Harry Potter, Frozen, Ninja Warriors, Lil’ Chefs and Wild about Animals. The camps’ morning and afternoon sessions will both cost $109 or a full day price of $199. The Wild about Animal camp will be a full day camp only. Camp morning sessions will start at 9 a.m., and afternoon sessions will start at 1:15 p.m.. Each different themed camp will last three days and will be on different dates throughout June and July. If parents need their children cared for before camp activities start, child care will be provided before the camp from 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m., according to umpqua.edu.
For children grades four through five, camp themes will include Culinary Creations, Fantastic Fiction, Legobots Mindstorms EV3, Ringobots and Wild about Animals. Culinary Creation and Fantastic Fiction will include both morning and afternoon sessions. The other camps including Legobots Mindstorms EV3, Ringobots and Wild about Animals will only be full day camps.
Grades six through 10 will have camp themes of Bots and Drones, Career Academy, Choppin’ it, Legobots Mindstorms EV3 and Outdoor Adventures. Career Academy will cost $89 for morning or afternoon sessions and a full day will cost $169. Bots and Drones will be from 10 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Outdoor Adventures, what Van Loon calls an “all day field trip,” will start at 9 a.m. and end at 5 p.m.
