Lycoming College for Kids and Teens
Lycoming College for Kids and Teens offers its one-week workshops from July 22-26, 2019 at the historic, Williamsport campus. Our scientific, artistic and magical workshops are taught by dedicated and enthusiastic teachers, and are designed to enhance creativity and problem solving. This year, we offer exceptional new, as well as long-time favorite, classes that have been developed to challenge our attendees.

ATTENTION! CFK has expanded its offerings to students who are entering grades 2-12! We welcome students to return to our summer program, year after year, until they’re ready to enroll in Lycoming College as an undergraduate! Students participate in a morning and afternoon workshops, which gives them the opportunity to explore two topics of their choice.
Each year we offer amazing classes, and this year is no exception. We have SCUBA and Snorkeling, as well as Comic Art class. Great news for creative writers — Mythic Storytellers is an awesome class that combines the best of history, archaeology, mythology and creative writing. If your child is a budding reporter, they can participate in the Mobile Journalists class. There, they will write stories and take photos and videos about the summer program and then publish these on the College for Kids and Teens website. If your child enjoys arts and crafts that preserve photographic memories, we offer Picture This, a creative class that offers myriad activities that goes beyond scrap booking. The Fantastical World of Fairy Tales is an creative and intellectual journey through Celtic Literature.
Examples of this year’s classes include: Art of Mexico, which celebrates the Hispanic culture; Junior Rangers, which introduces children to animals through arts and crafts; Young Engineers, that teaches the science behind building bridges and even launching rockets! Check out Wonder Bugs, a class that shows young botanists a world of transformation through metamorphosis – the world of insects! Annual favorites include Structure It, a class with hands-on activities using Legos and K’nex; then there’s Grossology, the class that nearly defies description since it introduces the physical side of science that most people find disgusting, but actually, it’s pretty cool!
Aeronautical Engineers is a favorite for the middle and high school students, allows participants to make and launch their own rockets. Another unique class class uses traditional cameras and teachers students the art of Black and White Photography. Students learn how to develop their own photographs in the darkroom and have an art show at the end of the week.
Open to elementary, middle and high school-aged students entering the second grade, through the twelfth grade, the summer program consists of two classes each day; Period 1 meets from 9 a.m. to noon, and Period 2 from 1 to 4 p.m. Extended care is offered for parents who need to drop off and pick up children between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
