It was a historic summer for Brazosport College’s Kids College.

Nearly 400 children, ages 6 through 12, recently participated in BC’s popular summer program, Brazosport Kids College. The program, which is offered through Brazosport College Community Education, finished the summer with 390 participating students.

Brazosport Kids College consisted of two, week-long programs for kids, with children 6-8 participating in the first week, followed by kids 9-12 in the second week.

“This was a dream year and we had a dream team,” said Brazosport College Community Education Youth Program Coordinator Shelley McCoy. “We had the best instructors, volunteers, students, everything. To my knowledge, this was the largest enrollment that we’ve had. It was just a wonderful year.”

Both sessions were filled, with 200 kids participating the first week and 190 in the second week.

Children had a blast in the different activities, which included everything from cooking, sign language, archery, science and technology, martial arts, video games, horse riding and more. Kids even had an opportunity to participate in a reptile class, in which they came face-to-face with snakes, lizards, giant turtles and other reptiles.

BC Community Education offers Brazosport Kids College every summer. To learn more about Brazosport Kids College or other programs offered through BC Community Education, call (979) 230-3600 or visit www.brazosport.edu/ce.
