LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Tippecanoe Youth Center has partnered with Harrison College, Ivy Tech, and Purdue University to host its first summer camp.
Kids ages 5 to 18 will spend the next three weeks involved in a number of learning activities.
Monday campers will head to Ivy Tech to take part in a technology education program.
At a cost of $25 for three weeks, camp organizers hope area children have the opportunity to remain physically and mentally active this summer.
"This day and age a lot of kids just sit on the couch and they're playing video games, they're not getting outside, so our main goal is just to get as many kids as we can up and active and keep them learning through out the summer so it's just really important to get them off the couch," said Jessica Avila, Camp Manager.
Tippecanoe Youth Center offered financial assistance for families who could not afford the cost.
They also host an after school program available for $35 for the entire school year.
