Both the morning and afternoon camps will consist of students enrolling in three 60-minute classes of their choice, per availability and grouped according to grade level. Children can attend one or both camps. Each participant will receive a t-shirt, snacks, and a MKC bag. Students choosing to enroll in both morning and afternoon camps will be provided lunch in the cafeteria.
The three-day MTC program will be for students entering grades 7-9. It is designed to give junior high students fun and educational experiences outside of a regular classroom setting. Tuition includes a t-shirt, bag, and lunch each day.
A limited number of scholarships are available, and will be awarded based on financial need and on a first come, first served basis. The scholarship application is also on the MKC website. Deadline to apply is April 5, and applicants will be notified by April 14.
