Summer Programs Offer Unique Learning Opportunities for K-12 Students
By Jon Leslie, Publications and Creative Services

From Camp Shakespeare to Creative Engineering, CU-Boulder will host a variety of summer programs this year for children in kindergarten through 12th grade. The summer programs are part of the university's ongoing commitment to community outreach, delivering unique learning experiences for Colorado's school-aged children.

"I love summer on campus; it's an exciting time of year," said Gail Siegel, director of the CU-Boulder Office of Community Relations. "These programs give us the opportunity to reach out and share the resources we have with the community."

In conjunction with many of the colleges, schools and departments on campus, CU-Boulder offers a host of K-12 programs in the arts, math, music, philosophy, science, theatre and many sports. The Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies also offers a summer study program for high school students. This program is designed to deliver the total pre-collegiate experience by combining challenging academics with sports, recreation and outdoor activities. Participating students get the chance to live on campus, earn college credit, make new friends and experience college life for the first time.

"Some of these students have never been on a college campus before," said Siegel. "For them, these programs are a chance to overcome any fears they might have and see how it feels to be on a college campus. At the same time, CU faculty and students get a chance to share their knowledge and expertise. It's a win-win situation."
