Kids Kollege

kids kollege logo Kids Kollege is an annual event presented by Somerset Community College’s Workforce Solutions department. The purpose of Kids Kollege is to give kids a fun and unique learning experience during their summer break. It is offered in two (2) four-day sessions every summer for children ages 6 – 12. Your child may attend one or both sessions!

In order to maintain quality and enjoyment, Kids Kollege classes may be limited to an average of 15–18 per class. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis as registration and payment are received.

The registration fee for a single child is $95 per week. Two (2) or more siblings may attend for $85 each per week. Due to the limited enrollment, no refunds will be given– no exceptions.

After your application is completed, we will process your child’s enrollment and issue an invoice to the parents listed on the form. We will send this to the email address provided on the application, and there will be instructions included on how you may submit payment.

Session 1*: June 17, 18, 20, 21 (All campus locations are closed on Wednesday, June 19.)

Session 2: June 24-27

*Both sessions are full. Registrations are closed for this year.
