Camp Middlesex Open House Set for March 6 from 1- 4 p.m.

MCC will hold an Open House for parents and children interested in attending Camp Middlesex this summer. The camp, located on campus, is for kids 6 to 18 years old. It runs from June 27-August 19.

The Open House, at which prospective campers and their parents can meet camp instructors, learn about all the programs and register, will be Sunday, March 6 from 1-4 p.m. in Crabiel Hall. A raffle will be held for a $100 gift certificate toward camp. Bring the kids to enjoy demonstrations and light refreshments.

Camp Middlesex is actually many special interest camps. Campers can pick their activity from a list of dozens, including theater, robotics, chess, magic, sports, video game creation, art, cooking, fashion, computers, and many more.

Each session runs for one week, mornings or afternoons, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 to 5 p.m. Most kids pick two camps for a full-day experience. There is also a pre-camp option starting at 7:30 a.m. and an after-camp program that runs until 6 p.m. to accommodate working parents.

Most programs are $175 per half-day camp.

“Parents love the variety of programs,” said Elaine Berlin, the Camp Middlesex coordinator. “They tell me ‘Who else offers theater, painting, sports, science and cooking, all in one place?’ This is a great option for working parents who want their children to be doing something fun and fulfilling. It’s affordable, and all our instructors are certified classroom teachers who care about each child. We have a full-time nurse should the need arise. Plus, the classrooms are air-conditioned and the campus is beautiful. It’s a wonderful experience.”
