Merritt Kids College offers a well-rounded program for boys and girls entering grades 6-9. Our mission is to nurture a habit of learning by providing opportunities for career and academic exploration, physical activity, and personal growth in a college setting. Merritt College faculty will teach a variety of classes including forensic science, Administration of Justice. fire science, EMT, nursing, Horticulture, and Merritt College coaches will lead campers in physical activities such as soccer, basketball and flag football.

There will also be interactive sessions on career exploration from Merritt College Counselors, as well as presentation which will help your children overcome peer pressure, drugs and violence, and prepare them for the road to college.

We will be having one camp session this summer, which will go from Monday, June 18th, until Thursday, June 28th (no classes on Saturday and Sunday). Tuition is now only $150! and will include all classes during the 9 days of camp. Campers must bring their own lunch and snacks.

All classes will take place on campus from 9 am to 4 pm, with after care available from 4 pm to 6 pm for an extra fee.

Each camper will receive a FREE Merritt Kids College T-shirt!
