THIBODAUX — Nicholls State University’s Office of Continuing Education has opened registration for its dozens of summer camps — all designed to help parents keep their children’s brains and bodies active throughout their summer break.
Options include daylong camps for the entire summer as well as weeklong camps for parents to pick and choose from. The schedule includes academic-based camps (focused on academic enrichment and science); sports camps (in basketball, soccer, cheerleading, karate and dance); and creative camps (centered on art, magic/balloon tricks and performing arts). Sure to be popular this summer, the Performing Arts Camp will be putting on Disney Channel’s popular High School Musical Jr. with participants serving as singers, actors and dancers. All camps are taught by certified teachers and professionals in their field.
Three new camps have been added to this summer’s schedule. The Rock-n-Roll Summer Camp will help aspiring musicians learn the roles of artist, promoter, manager and production assistant while preparing for a live concert. The Kids Culinary Camp will teach students food preparation skills as they create tasty dishes in campus culinary kitchens. And, the Youth Fitness & Fun Camp will focus on how to live healthier — including exercising, making better food choices when dining out and cooking popular foods in healthier ways.
