TJC offers summer activities, sports camps for ages 3 and up


April 14—From art to athletics, chemistry to computing, horseback riding to hip-hop dancing, Tyler Junior College is hosting a summer camp to spark the imagination of any young explorer .

Registration is now open for TJC Summer Camps for children ages 3 and up. Camps begin in June and continue until mid-August.

“We have a great range of sports summer camps and activities,” said Heath Stoner, TJC Summer Camps Director.

“TJC camps provide great opportunities for children to learn skills to succeed in sports and learn about other cultures through art, science and technology,” he said, “but they are also often a child’s first opportunity to spend time on a college campus. Ultimately, we hope our campers will be inspired to pursue a college career one day.”
