Kids’ College at Lake-Sumter State College has a rich history of over 30 years providing an exciting, interactive, and academic program to children in Lake and Sumter Counties.

Over the years, Kids’ College has expanded from a program exclusively for young children to a series of experiences beginning at the 1st grade and continuing through high school graduation.

Kids’ College (1st through 6th Grades)

Kids’ College is an enriching academic summer experience for children entering 1st – 6th grades to expand their knowledge, learn new skills and have an opportunity for exploration and discovery.

Programs are offered on LSSC campuses in Leesburg and Clermont throughout June and July.

We are looking for enthusiastic, attentive Program Aides to lead, support, and motivate students as they enjoy all that camp has to offer in the summer months. This program is intended for recent high school graduates that have previously attended one of the Youth Development programs. Applicants should be cheerful, responsible and possess strong leadership skills.
