TAMIU ‘Dusty’s Junior U’ Summer Camp Brings Fun and Learning for Kids

 

Globe at TAMIU Entrance
 

           

            Fun and learning await kids at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) ‘Dusty’s Junior U’ Summer Camp June 5-29 and July 5-20.

            Dusty’s Junior U Summer Camp registration and cost information as well as a complete list of courses designed for K-12 students, ranging from Conversational Spanish and Pokémon and Friends to Robotics and Pre-Calculus Prep, can be found at http://www.tamiu.edu/ce/

            Susan Foster, Continuing Education director, said that this year, Dusty’s Junior U is offering a Programming Camp, in which Young Cadets will explore the world of web-based mobile Apps, how to make 3D video games and the basics of creating 3D models through Minecraft. This camp is separate from Dusty’s Junior U., but for detailed information, please email the Office of Continuing Education at ce@tamiu.edu

            “We are excited to offer an expanded summer camp this year which promises to keep campers engaged and entertained in a safe and welcoming environment,” Foster said, “Each year, we strive to make our programs even better and provide our campers an opportunity to further develop their skills.”

            One of the features of Dusty’s Junior U Summer Camp is that students can sample a variety of classes.

            “Students in grades 1st to 12th will be switching from class to class within the same building and kindergarten students will be staying in the same room,” Foster said, “For lunch, at an additional cost, students will receive lunch tickets and will be able to choose combos from Chick-fil-A, Subway, or Bene’s Pizza.”

            Purchasing lunch is not a requirement, and students are allowed to bring their own lunches and snacks, Foster said.

            There is no registration deadline for the Summer Camp as they are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, but there are only 20 spots per grade level, Foster said.

            “We encourage parents to register as soon as possible so that their students have a guaranteed space,” Foster said.

            For more information, please contact Foster at the Office of Continuing Education at  326.3068, email ce@tamiu.edu or visit offices located in Student Center, room.

            University office hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
