Summer fun for kids at CSUS

Give your kids a summer to remember by enrolling them in one, or more, of the many educational and recreational programs offered this summer at California State University, Sacramento.

Academic Talent Search will continue its popular offerings of accelerated and enrichment courses for sixth-through-ninth-graders, many of them taught by CSUS faculty. Since 1982, ATS has provided instruction to more than 22,000 academically talented students. Financial aid and merit scholarships are available.
Athletes ages five and older have a number of opportunities to improve their skills. There will be boys’ and girls’ soccer camps, volleyball camps, softball camps and more.

Of course, a summer in the Sacramento region wouldn’t be the same without water activities, and there will be many offered at the CSUS Aquatic Center at Lake Natoma. More than 3,500 children and teens are expected to participate in numerous activities, including rowing, water skiing and sailing.

CSUS’ popular WAVE Camp will be back this year with two sessions. The camp offers young people with disabilities a chance to participate in scuba diving, swimming, sailing and other water sports.

For more information about the specific programs offered, refer to the contact numbers listed on the following schedule. For media assistance, contact the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
