RANGELY I It’s sign-up time again for College For Kids through Colorado Northwestern Community College, with this year’s schedule offering new courses and discounted rates for multiple classes.
Junior Pilots, Junior Rangers and Mad Scientists courses return to the scene this year, with instructors planning to mix the familiar with the new.
Jennifer Walgrave’s Junior Rangers course offers a different patch and field guide at a new location this year, while Michelle Holland and John MacMillan’s science class will explore the “why” behind invisible ink, lava lamps, crystals and lightning.
“From year to year, these courses have been extremely popular,” CNCC community education coordinator Angie Miller said. “They’re an excellent reflection of some of our campus programs.”
Some courses are variations of past offerings, like Walgrave’s Treasure Hunters’ class, which focuses on basics like map-reading and compass use.
Kids’ climbing costs $5 and teaches children the importance of communication and group work in rock climbing. Next up is kids’ yoga, the only week-long session offered by certified instructor Tarrah Patch.
