Summer fun for kids of all ages at Sac State

There’s fun in the sun – and in the classroom – for boys and girls of all ages in a variety of recreational and educational summer programs offered by Sacramento State.

Academic Talent Search allows 6th to 9th graders to expand their minds through accelerated and enrichment classes in more than 100 academic subjects like animation, genetics, Shakespearean theater and zoology. One-, three- and five-week courses will be offered from June 20 to Aug. 1.

The CSUS Aquatic Center will bring back its full array of water sports camps for kids ages 7 to 17, which include sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, jet skiing and white-water rafting. Optional overnight campouts will be available for all student participants.

Science Adventures summer camp returns to campus for nine weeklong sessions for kids in kindergarten through sixth grade, with exciting exploratory and hands-on learning camps in robotics, rocketry and more.

Athletic day camps for kids, teens and high schoolers, with overnight camping for some programs, will be offered in football, basketball, rowing, volleyball, tennis and other sports.

Peak Adventures offers three camps for kids 9 to 18 years old with daylong and overnight camping options, and day excursions either on-campus or off-campus. The Leadership Camp helps kids become confident leaders through a backpacking trip with their peers.

WAVE camp is open again to youth 10 to 25 years old with disabilities.
