NIACC announces summer offerings for students

To North Iowa News

Mason City, Iowa – Are you looking for ways to keep the kids busy this summer?  Activities that are fun and provide a unique learning experience?  North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) is offering several summer camps this year that will provide much needed mental and physical stimulation for those long summer days.

The NIACC Mind Mania camp is the best week of the summer!  NIACC’s Mind Mania day camp will run from June 17-June 21 and offer campers the chance to exercise their minds in the morning and their energy in the afternoon.

Kids entering grades 3-7 can find out exactly what the excitement is this summer when they attend the week-long camp. Camp will run every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and kids will explore areas like sports, nature, forensics, creative writing, computers, theater, and more! Plus our instructors are top of the line from BA’s to PhD’s.

Join in on all the fun this summer and get in on Mind Mania! Following a morning of fun and learning, campers will break for lunch with entrees such as cheeseburgers, pizza, spaghetti, all-beef hot dogs, and chicken nuggets. In the afternoon the fun continues with high-energy activities.

Your camper will enroll in only one morning session and one afternoon session. That means every camper will choose one class to take all week long for the morning and one class to take all week long for the afternoon session.

Space is limited so sign up today.

Come and experience what it is like to work in healthcare. NIACC is offering a Health Careers Camp on July 30-31 from 9:00 am-4:00 pm on the NIACC campus for students entering grades 9-12.

You will learn how to perform essential job duties related to health careers and have some fun while doing it. You will put what you learn into action in a state-of-the-art Health Simulation Facility while working with mannequins that talk, breathe, blink and respond just like a real person!
