Polk State Kids at College Still Accepting Registrations

Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College is still accepting registrations for its annual Kids at College program.

Children ages 5 to 14 may choose from classes such as “Fold It,” which explores origami, the ancient art of folding paper into beautiful shapes; “Chefs-in-Training,” which gives hands-on practice in cooking healthy meals; and “Scrap It,” which teaches participants how to create cherished scrapbooks.

The lineup of more than three dozen classes also covers acting, science, history, magic, computer programming, beauty, fitness, fashion, board games, cheerleading, music, and other topics.

Polk State’s Kids at College has existed for more than 18 years and continues to grow in popularity, with many families signing up year after year.

“My daughter is so excited to head back to her third year at Kids at College. This is a fun and educational opportunity to help her stay active and engaged over the summer,” said Kimberly Vandervort.

Polk State offers Kids at College classes in two sessions: Session 1, June 18-28, Monday-Thursday, and Session 2, July 9-19, Monday-Thursday. Classes are available during each session on both the Lakeland and Winter Haven campuses. Lakeland classes are from 8:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Winter Haven classes are from 1:15 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Kids at College classes will also be offered at Bok Academy in Lake Wales during Session 2 from 8:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Classes are $50 each or $150 per session. Some classes may require an extra lab fee.
