Parents can help their kids make the most of the summer by registering them into one or more of the new youth enrichment opportunities at Sandhills Community College. Students will be able to explore one of the premier community college campuses in the state while participating in a wide range of programs from sports to technology.
These fun, safe and high-quality programs are offered through the Athletic and the Continuing Education Division. Registration has begun and classes have a limit on number of participants.
Athletics will include volleyball for girl’s grades 1-5, 6-8 and 9-12, and boy’s and girl’s basketball for rising 3-9 grades. All information can be found and registration can be carried out at sccflyers.com/camps.
