KALAMAZOO--Students, employees and the general public are invited to enroll children in the 2011 Campus Kids Summer Program offered by the Children's Place Learning Center at Western Michigan University.

The program will run from June 6 through Sept. 2, and each week will feature a different theme with special interest topics. It is open to children who have completed kindergarten, up to age 9. Parents may enroll their children by the week, or for the entire summer. Space is limited, so those who are interested are urged to register early.

Participants will learn about dinosaurs, experience foods and crafts from around the world, explore the mysteries of mythology, and create and perform puppet shows. A full list of all 13 weekly themes is available online at The Children's Place Learning Center is the home base for the program, and children will participate in activities and field trips around campus each week.

Center hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Special childcare arrangements are available before the June 6 summer program start date, and regular learning opportunities are available for children ages 18 months to 5 years.

To register or obtain more information, visit the Campus Kids Summer Program online or call (269) 387-2277.
