Fun for Kids at CSUS
just more than a month, children from the throughout the Capital
Region will find themselves at California State University,
Sacramento - chasing soccer balls, conducting chemistry experiments
and much more.
In fact, as in previous years, there will be thousands of
children taking part in youth programs at the University this
Among the programs will be Academic Talent Search, the National
Youth Sports Program, Sports Camp and WAVE Camp. There will
also be a number of programs on campus run by independent
Academic Talent Search, now in its 20th year, serves more
than 1,400 academically gifted middle school students each
summer. Students get both specialized instruction and a college
experience to remember.
Teenagers may also participate in the National Youth Sports
Program. The program offers everything from traditional sports,
such as football and volleyball, to programs on personal health.
CSUS also hosts the Sacramento State Sports Camp for boys
and girls. Activities include sports, nontraditional games
and arts and crafts.
And WAVE Camp is back again after a successful debut last
year. The program gives children with physical disabilities
the opportunity to participate in water-related recreation,
sports and fitness activities. Children will pair with trained
"buddies" and participate in water polo, swimming,
sailing and more.
Many other water classes will be offered at the CSUS Aquatic
Center at Lake Natoma. Children can learn jet skiing, rowing,
windsurfing and white-water rafting. There's also basic camp
for small children and specialized camps for intermediate
level children are available.
