Summer brings fun for kids at CSUS

Summer is just around the corner, and it once again promises a slew of athletic, educational and just plain fun programs for kids at California State University, Sacramento.

A variety of activities will be offered to fit every child's interests and needs.

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. Last year the program attracted almost 1,700 students to more than 100 classes.

Athletes ages five and older have a number of opportunities to improve their game. 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 complete without water activities, and there will be several camps at the CSUS Aquatic Center at Lake Natoma. More than 3,500 children and teens are expected to participate in numerous activities, including rowing and sailing. Beginning and intermediate classes will be offered.

And WAVE Camp will be back this year with two sessions. The camp offers young people with disabilities a chance to participate in water polo, swimming, sailing and more.
