After a five-year hiatus, Walla Walla Community College’s popular Kids College summer camp is coming back this June.

“Kids College has been on pause since 2019, and we are so very thrilled to bring it back!” says WWCC Director of Continuing and Community Education Annaliese Baker.

From June 24 to 28, children ages 9 to 13 can gather at the Dietrich Dome for a fun-filled week of activities designed to spark their curiosity and creativity, discover new passions, and build lasting friendships.


Kids College participants can choose from three program tracks:

In “Craft It Arts,” kids willhone their creative skills with hands-on activities in baking, drawing comics and welding metal sculptures.

For “STEM and the Arts,” kids will explore the local ecosystem, design a digital museum exhibit and build their own environment-themed tabletop games.

And in “Performing Arts,” students will discover the art of shadow puppetry and learn theater essentials as they prepare to put on their own fun fairytale play.

It all ends with a Friday night College Capstone event where kids will showcase their work for their parents and each other.

This year’s summer camp is sure to banish summer boredom, but it has a deeper mission too, according to Baker. “We hope it inspires a lifelong love of learning, creativity and curiosity,” she says. “It’s never too early to teach kids to feel at home on a college campus.”
