Area youth are invited to Cloud County Community College’s ninth annual Kid’s College July 9-11 on the Concordia campus. The theme of this year’s event is “Wild, Wild West,” and classes will run from 1-4 p.m. each day.

This year, a new activity has been added to the schedule. A family movie night will be at the Broadway Plaza on July 11, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Kid’s College is open to students who will be entering kindergarten through sixth grade in August. The cost to attend is $25 per child, which gets students a Kid’s College t-shirt and enrollment in three classes.

Early enrollment deadline is June 22. Individual classes are limited to 20 students each, so early enrollment is suggested. A t-shirt cannot be guaranteed without early enrollment. Classes are based on age groups to better facilitate learning for the students. Class groups are: Kindergarten, first and second grades, third and fourth grades, and fifth and six grades.

Some of the classes to be offered this year include Inside Out, where students will get hands-on experience with the college’s nursing department, Fun and Games, Baseball 101, Science World, and Tye Dye Western Style. A full list of classes and their descriptions can be found on the College’s website at

For more information about registering for Kid’s College, or volunteering to assist during the week, contact Carleen Nordell at 1.800.729.5101, ext. 344. Kid’s College registration brochures were delivered to area schools in May, and can also be downloaded on the Cloud website at
