College for Kids is the perfect environment for students to discover new talents, expand their knowledge, and enjoy hands on learning. Summer programs are offered as classes by NGRREC℠, and provide students with the opportunity to discover their water resources through interactive experiences such as water quality sampling, stream scavenger hunts, storm drain stenciling, migratory bird watching and much more.

    College for Kids is an academic enrichment program for children of all ages - from pre-school through high school. More than 20,000 young people have participated in hands-on learning in math, science, creative arts, technology and languages since the program began in 1989.

    Camp Waterschool

    Come participate in a global education program learning about and experiencing water through arts and crafts, science experiments, and hands-on demonstrations through the Swarovski Waterschool program at the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center. You will have the opportunity to study a real stream and experience being on the river in large voyager canoes! Students will reflect on their personal experiences with water and how they can make positive differences in their own watershed communities – they’ll even get first-hand experience participating in a watershed stewardship project. You’ll also see the different ways in which students in six other countries interact with their water resources. This is a FREE 1-week class, but pre-registration is required by the dates listed below. Lunch options will be provided at NO COST. You can choose between either a turkey and cheese, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or opt to have your student bring their own lunch. Both provided sandwich options come with a whole fruit, cookie, and small carton of milk.

    • Participant ages: 10-12 years old (at the time of each camp)
