Summer Is Not Over Yet! – Learning As A Lifestyle

There is still a lot of summer left. At the Center for Lifelong Learning, we have eight camps available for children.

Starting the week of July 10, we have Hip Hop Camp and Soccer Camp. Pop! Lock! Break! The Hip Hop Camp explores the most popular dance craze in the world. Learn high-energy steps that you can combine with your own freestyle form to create the perfect hip-hop combination. Family and friends will be amazed when you show off your latest moves. No previous dance experience required. Hip Hop Camp is offered Mon-Thu, from 9:00am – 12:00pm, in the Mezzanine of the Center. The fee is $95 and you can register online or by calling our office at 256-233-8260. Soccer Camp is also offered the week of July 10, Mon-Thu, from 9:00am – 11:00am. The fee is $75.

The week of July 17 there will be four camps – two Art Explorers, Gross Science, and CSI for Kids. The Art Explorers camps focus on each child’s creativity through the use of imagination and art mediums. Campers will discover different themes and various techniques to express themselves artistically. Be prepared to get messy — each day will be a brand new art adventure! The camp for 8-12 year olds is scheduled from 9:00am to 12:00pm while the Art Explorers from 5-7 years old will meet from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
