College for Kids returns to York County Community College

Wells-  Once again, this summer offers exciting possibilities for youth, ages seven to fourteen, at York County Community College’s Wells campus.

Beginning July 11 and running through August 19, this year’s College for Kids program includes the ever-popular science camps; Chemistry, Physics and Geology, as well as camps for the artistically inclined; Advanced Animation, Musical Theatre, and Writing and Publishing camps.  And, back by popular demand both beginner and advanced culinary camps to keep those aspiring chefs busy.

“Each year we try to bring back the camps that were the most enjoyed by the campers,” says Paulette Millette, Director of Community Education and Career Training.  “The kids aren’t shy about what they liked and what they gained from the experience.”

According to Millette, one of last summer’s favorites was the Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) camp, wherein Sergeant Wayne Cronin of the Wells Police Department created a 5 day event that explored crime scene evidence including; fingerprints, shoe prints, tire tracks, blood stain analysis and forensic anthropology. This summer, Sergeant Cronin will instruct up to 20 students, ages 11-14, in the difference between what CSI looks like on television and real life.  Sergeant Cronin will work with 3 other Wells PD officers, throughout the week, on a rotating basis. According to Sergeant Cronin, “this is a way to connect with local kids and show then we are approachable and knowledgeable and it may prompt  future interest in crime scene investigation.”
