Program runs June 11-Aug. 31 with various themes.

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University students, employees and the general public are invited to enroll children in the 2012 Campus Kids Summer Program offered by the WMU Children's Place Learning Center.

The program will run from June 11-Aug. 31, 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 sign up children by the week, or for the entire summer. Enrollment is limited, so those interested are urged to register early while space is available.

Participants will learn about the rainforest, explore kitchen chemistry, or create a carnival complete with games and snow cones. A full list of all 12 weekly themes is available online at wmich.edu/childcare/campuskids.

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. This is a terrific opportunity to bring children to campus, and to keep them active, learning and having fun.

Center hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Special childcare arrangements are available before the June 11 summer program start date, and regular learning programs are available for children aged 18 months to 5 years.

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