For the fifth time in as many years, Hopkinsville Community College’s Kentucky In College Can Soar (KICCS), an academic camp, is coming to Trigg County.

One of five such camps this summer, KICCS will be coming to Trigg County Middle School Monday, June 25, through Friday, June 29, with the other four camps held at the HCC campus. Registration cost for the camps is $79 per student.

Some of the classes offered in Cadiz include “Fly Away with Math,” wherein students use geometry and household items to build a kite, and “Edible Economics,” wherein students learn about economics by trading blue-chip stocks with chocolate chips.

Carol Kirves, associate dean of continuing education for HCC, said, “KICCS is an educational program that has two main goals. It’s a summer camp, so it’s supposed to be fun, but we’re trying to teach kids that learning can be fun, and then we’re also trying to introduce the idea that … there are certain careers that if you want to be a teacher or a lawyer or a doctor or a nurse, you need to go to college.”

Kirves said participating students can choose three classes per week, which are taught by HCC instructors as well as instructors from other schools, adding that it is a weeklong summer camp for students going into Grades 1 through 6. It is a day camp that meets from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
