Volunteer and Job Applications for LSSC Kids’ College  Summer Camps Now Open

Lake-Sumter State College is recruiting high school students and recent high school graduates to volunteer or work with our Kids’ College summer programs.

Kids’ College is an enriching summer program for school-aged (1st-6th grades) children to expand their knowledge, learn new skills and have an opportunity for exploration and discovery.

New this year, LSSC’s Youth Development team is hosting a new summer program called Xploration. This camp is specifically designed for middle-school aged (6th-9th grades) children to experience hands-on, interactive and challenging tracks that will put their skills to the test and provide them with a more advanced summer learning experience.

Kids’ College and Xploration are offered in June and July at LSSC’s Leesburg and South Lake campuses. Aides-in-Training and Program Aides must be available for all dates.

The application deadline for both programs is Friday, April 24, 2020.For more information and to apply, visit www.lssc.edu/kidscollege.
