McNeese Summer Kids College to Focus on STEM - Friday, May 5, 2017

McNeese State University Leisure Learning is offering "A STEM Adventure” summer program as part of its Kids College from May 29-Aug. 11 for children entering grades 1­-8.

The 11-week program will offer activities, projects and field trips for students interested in engineering, nature, ocean exploration, astronomy and rockets, physical science and chemistry and so much more. The program is offered from 8 a.m.­ to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday with early drop off/late pick up available.

Each week will feature a separate theme and will offer kids the opportunity to participate in hands-on and outdoor activities, as well as visit Lake Charles landmarks, museums and exhibits. Elementary and middle school certified teachers, as well as local and international McNeese students from various disciplines, will provide an environment of enrichment and fun to keep kids engaged and learning over the summer.

"The program is education focused – but we never want the kids to know it!” says May Gray, coordinator of Leisure Learning at McNeese. "This is a fabulous campus with so much to offer and we want the children of the community to come and experience it. It’s a great opportunity for them to make friends, as well as to improve academic, artistic or physical skills and expand their horizons.”

Registration is $75 and cost per week is $179. There is a discounted price for each additional child, as well as discounts for multi-week enrollment. For more information, visit or call the leisure learning office at 337­-475­-5616.
