Kids learn fun at LTCC


This summer more than 700 children will be learning to rock climb, hula dance, star gaze, work on computers, and speak Spanish at the Lake Tahoe Community College Kids and Youth College.

In its fifth year this popular program is adding a new component. On top of great community education courses there is also a college credit section. Credit courses designed for students, ages 12 to 18, range from basic web

page development to theater and ice hockey and have an open enrollment. Children age 5 and older have 19 different classes to choose from in the community education section, including beginning ice skating and primary computers.

Registration starts June 3 and classes start June 24. The college ends Aug. 23. Thanks to generous community support there is $4,800 for scholarships to be used by students in financial need who wish to participate in the

community education portion. Parents can ask their child’s teacher or the school office for a scholarship application. The LTCC Foundation, Kiwanis Sunrisers, Kiwanis Club of Lake Tahoe, Optimists, and the South Lake Tahoe Rotary Club provided scholarship money. Students taking a community

education course can register at LTCC. Students wishing to take a credit class must also see their school counselor prior to registering at LTCC. Their counselor will have the needed LTCC admissions application in addition to the LTCC placement form.
