MHC offers new summer camps to kids and teens in 2015

May 6, 2015

Medicine Hat College (MHC) has released their 2015 Summer Camps for Kids and Teens Calendar. The calendar includes a variety of new classes that are sure to help kids stay active and have fun, while exploring and learning about new topics.

“This year we have some great new camps like Chopped Kids in the Kitchen and Myth Busters, which are based on the popular TV shows,” says Nicole Walcer-Nugent, program administrator. “The college is also offering hockey camps for all levels including beginner to atom/peewee, and thanks to the support of Cenovus Energy and Praxis we’ve been able to buy new equipment and expand our science camps.”

Walcer-Nugent explains that the summer programs for teens will be returning. The camps are geared to youth ages 13 and over. Themes vary from trades and science to athletics and arts.

MHC has also partnered with Black Rocket this year to offer kids an opportunity to make their own video game, create an app, or design Minecraft characters through 3-D modelling software. Black Rocket provides unique, hands-on, educational programs to children and youth around creative sciences, self-empowerment, cognitive reasoning and divergent thinking.

“There really is something for everyone. What’s great about what we do, is that every year we can cater our programs to the latest trends in pop culture, while also ensuring we educate and create an experience that is memorable for those that participate,” says Walcer-Nugent. “The college is a fun place to be - especially in the summer.”
