When you’re looking for activities for your kids, or educational opportunities for them, it’s not always easy to find classes or events tailored to the unique interests of your child.
After all, not every kid wants to do the typical dance, gymnastics, soccer routine. So, what do you do if your child is interested in magic or juggling, cooking or cosmetology, detective work or building electronics?
If you have a child who scores in the 95th percentile or above on standardized tests, is currently enrolled in their school’s gifted program, or has an IQ of 125 or above, they may qualify for St. Louis Community College’s College for Kids.
Two programs that may be of interest are Circus Arts Camp and Abra-Kid-Abra: Kid’s Comedy Camp.
Both of these classes begin June 14th and run through June 18th, but they are on different schedules, so your child would be able to attend both if desired.
In Circus Arts Camp, kids will learn how to perform magic tricks, turn balloons into animals, toys and costumes, and how to do face painting. Any child who has an interest in becoming a performer would really enjoy this class!
Abra-Kid-Abra: Kid’s Comedy Camp will teach kids how to do stand-up, sketch and improv comedy, and some theatrics as well. At the end of the week, kids will perform for family and friends.
If you have a little “clown” in your family, either of these classes would be a great way to help your child learn some skills and confidence in an area that may further their dream of being in the spotlight one day.
Register online or call 314-984-7777 for more information.
College for Kids offers all kinds of unique elective classes including crime investigation, magic and juggling, puppetry, computer building, screenwriting, art, cooking, photography and more.
