EAU CLAIRE — From planning a circus to conquering an obstacle course to visiting a planetarium, the Children's Center Summer Program at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will offer children in the Chippewa Valley, ages 6 to 10, a chance to enjoy a variety of classes.
The Summer Program emphasizes gaining experience and skills in selecting, planning and implementing interactive projects and activities. The program, under the supervision of professional teachers, will be held June 19-Aug. 11.
The activities, which will take place on and off the UW-Eau Claire campus, will include projects in art, music and dance, physical development, science and literature. The children also will have the opportunity to visit local parks, a landfill, a museum, libraries and an Amish farm.
"The children choose what they like to do and develop interests in a variety of areas. There's no limit to what they might learn and explore," said Marge Barnard, teacher at the Children's Center. "In addition to learning skills that will impact them for life, the children are making friends, developing confidence, valuing differences and having a good time."
The registration fee is $20. The program, which is open to the public, costs $23 for a full day and $13 for a half day. UW-Eau Claire students receive discounted rates.
For more information and registration materials, contact the Children's Center at (715) 836-2178.
