Summertime is upon us and kids will soon be out of school, demanding to be entertained. It can be challenging to come up with ways to occupy all their free time, especially if you don’t want them sitting around the house and in front of the T.V. all day, every day. Keep their young minds engaged and captivated this summer with our 2019 Summer Kids College program at Copiah-Lincoln Community College’s Natchez Campus. This year’s program has classes available in a variety of interests and age groups. In this environment, kids will be encouraged to be creative, think outside the box, be active, and learn through fun hands-on activities, experiments, and games!
