Registrating Continuing for UA’s Innovative Capstone Camp

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – School-age youngsters and adults still have time to experience a slice of college life at The University of Alabama Capstone Camp this summer.

Registration for Capstone Camp, a program taught by UA honors undergraduate and graduate students, is being held for the final three sessions of the summer.

Classes are taught in various locations on the UA campus, and are offered in the morning or in the afternoon. Both location and time are determined on a class-by-class basis. Class size is limited to only six students to offer students more one-on-one time with instructors, so those interested should register as early as possible.

The session dates are:
Session 4, July 10 – 21.
Session 5, July 17 – 28
Session 6, July 24 – Aug. 4.

Two-week courses cost $150, and three-week courses, which run on a different time schedule, cost $225.

Capstone Camp gives its students a chance to take non-credit, 2-3 week courses in technology, language, exercise and sports, acting, creative writing, arts, music, interactive history and self-enhancement.

Though Capstone Camp is aimed primarily at youth in grades 7-12, there are two other divisions of Capstone Camp that cater to both the younger and the older crowd.

Capstone Kids is a program designed to meet the needs of children in grades K-6, introducing them to topics they might not have encountered before. During these sessions, small groups of children can choose from eight different courses, including KidWeb and Photography for Kids. KidWeb will teach kids the basics of computing and will show them how to format a simple web page.

Capstone Nights is the division of Capstone Camp aimed toward adults who are not available during the day. Classes are held from 7-9 p.m. to better accommodate a working adult’s schedule. Capstone Nights’ course topics range from computers to creative writing, and are offered during all three of the remaining sessions.
