Summer Camp Registration Underway

Summer Camp Registration Underway

April 29, 2016 |

With the end of the school year approaching, it’s time for parents to think about summer camp opportunities offered at East Central College.

Offerings include everything from photography to wizardry, robotics to archery, and many other interesting topics.  Almost 20 different topics will be covered this summer with all sessions scheduled at the ECC campus in Union.

Children can participate in camps involving art, drama, videography and photography.  Career exploration sessions are planned in fields related to nursing, robotics, journalism and mass media.  A week-long youth leadership academy is also planned for 10 to 16 year olds.

Even the very young can be  involved this summer with Kindermusik sessions set for June 13 – 16.

American Red Cross babysitter training course for children ages 11 to 14 will be offered on three dates:  June 14 and 21, and August 10.  Cost to attend that session is $105.  This training provides potential babysitters with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and responsibly care for infants and children.  This hands-on class includes role-plays, activities, a video and discussion.  Participants receive a handbook to take home.  The class meets from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. so participants should bring a sack lunch.

ECC will also offer the Missouri Hunter Education Skills Session.  Early sign up is encouraged since space is limited in that there is no charge for the August 5 event, but registration must be completed at least seven days prior to the start of class.

The complete list of camps can be viewed online.  For more information and to register, call 636-584-6528 or email

Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis with total fee payment due at the time of registration.
