June 11 is the deadline to register for a Summer Fun Week for children ages 8-12 at California University’s Southpointe Center.

Sessions will be held from 1-4 p.m. daily, June 18-22. Each day features a different theme. 

On Monday, Kitchen Chemistry Day, children will conduct safe but crafty experiments with “rubber” eggs, “magic” candles and some things that go “boom.” 

Tuesday is Eco-Art Day, when children create artwork with gently used or recycled products. 

Wednesday’s Crafty Day will be a special session challenging youngsters’ creative abilities, with secret details to be unveiled that day.

On Thursday, Hobby Day, several collectors and hobbyists will visit Southpointe to showcase their collections and explain how collecting coins, comics and toys can become an enjoyable hobby.

Friday’s session will be a Happy Birthday Party. Each participant will create a personalized birthday card, and children will work in teams on specific party planning areas, such as decorating, making favors, creating games and making refreshments. The session will conclude with cupcakes and prizes.

Each Fun Week session begins and ends in the second floor lounge area of the Cal U Southpointe Center. Classes meet in various classrooms and lab spaces.

Cost for the program is $10 per daily session, or $40 for all five days. Space is limited, and registration is required by June 11.

Checks can be made payable to “The Foundation for California University” and mailed to: Cal U Southpointe Center, Attn: Ellie Nesser, 135 Technology Drive, Canonsburg, PA  15317.

All proceeds benefit the Southpointe Student Scholarship Fund.
