Rend Lake College holding 3 summer camps in July

INA, IL (KFVS) - Rend Lake College's Kids Summer Camps is wrapping up with three camps in July: Blastoff!, Volleyball Camp and Strike a Pose.

Back by popular demand, Blastoff! is the ultimate science camp full of challenges for students between fourth and eighth grades.

Blastoff! is taught by Greg Hollmann, RLC General Science Associate Professor, and participants will build and launch their own rocket, all while developing a strong sense of self and a connection to their environment.

Staff says if your child has attended in the past, don't be concerned as it has new challenges to stimulate and educate campers.

Blastoff! Camp costs $75 and will meet from 1 to 4 p.m., Monday, July 13 through Thursday, July 16 in the Historic Schoolhouse on the Ina campus.

Volleyball Camp is for sixth through eighth grade girls wanting to get active this summer.

For both volleyball beginners and veteran players, this camp will focus on the fundamentals of passing, setting, hitting and blocking, with some offensive and defensive principles taught in between by RLC Volleyball Coach Sara Crews.

Participants will receive a Sports Camp T-shirt, but should bring lunch, water, shorts, socks, tennis shoes and knee pads.

Volleyball Camp costs $30 and will meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, July 18 in James "Hummer" Waugh Gymnasium on the Ina campus.

To register, contact RLC's Athletics Department at (618) 437-5321, Ext. 1250 or oxford@rlc.edu.

The final camp, Strike a Pose is for students between first and seventh grades and will feature the latest fashions and trends, led by Studio RLC Cosmetology School.

Campers will feel like a model after covering the basics of skin care, make-up, nail care, hair styles, poise and etiquette.

Instructors will help students develop and build on their self-confidence, personality and social skills, all while preparing for an end-of-the-day runway walk.

Strike a Pose camp costs $35 and will meet from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday, July 23 at Studio RLC in the RLC Market Place in Mt. Vernon.

The camp fee includes lunch, but attendees should bring their favorite outfit for the runway walk.

To register for Blastoff! or Strike a Pose, or for more information, contact RLC's Community and Corporate Education Division at (618) 437-5321, Ext. 1714, or morrise@rlc.edu.
