Learning and having fun will go hand-in-hand this summer at St. Charles Community College’s College for All Kids (CfAK) camps. The College for All Kids summer camps are now enrolling for more than 100 academic enrichment and sports camps to be held June 5-Aug. 4, for children ages 5-14. STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) camps are an area of specialty.

From Woodworking to Coding, 3D Printing to Movie Making, Masterchef Cooking to Broadway Musical camps and LEGO Robotics Engineering to Creative Chemistry, kids and teens will find something to inspire and motivate them at SCC.

“Each camp explores a topic in depth,” said Amy Fitzwilliam, SCC program specialist. “It is important for us to keep pursuing students’ interests with fresh, new camps and returning favorites. We hope to be able to spark a student’s enthusiasm in new topics and open their eyes to new possibilities in learning and areas of interest.”

This year, CfAK has a co-sponsorship with St. Charles Parks and Recreation and Inventor Forge. Science rocks will be held at Quail Ridge Park and 3D Printing and Woodworking will be held at Inventor Forge at the EDC Building in Cottleville. App Attack, Advanced 3D Video Game with Unity, Python Programmers and Code Your Own Adventure camps will be held at St. Charles Community College – Dardenne Creek campus.

College for All Kids summer camps are committed to ensuring child safety. The camp provides a 10:1 safe ratio of students per staff member. All staff have background checks and attend training workshops. Camp assistants all have CPR, First-Aid and Epi-Pen training.

For a quick video of our program and to see a virtual catalog, visit www.stchas.edu/CFAK.

The camps will be held Monday-Friday, and costs range in price from $109-249. To register or learn more about camp schedules and pricing, visit www.stchas.edu/learnforlife or call 636-922-8233.

St. Charles County First Responders are busy honing their bartending skills in preparation for the return of the Big Kahuna Bartender Challenge. The popular event will once again give Community Living’s Board of Directors the chance to defend their title by battling it out behind the bar to raise funds for individuals with disabilities in St. Charles County. The team that earns the most money in tips during the event will earn the coveted “Big Kahuna” title and bragging rights for the year. Area residents are invited to come out and cheer on their favorite team during the event, which will take place on Tuesday, June 26, from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m. at Gettemeier’s – St. Peters, located at 269 Salt Lick Road. 

 

The Big Kahuna Bartender Challenge will feature three teams: St. Charles County Ambulance District, Central County Fire & Rescue and Community Living’s Board of Directors. Members of each team will work behind the bar, showing off their skills and mingling with guests to earn the most tips and generate the most money overall during their allotted one-hour time slot. The public is invited to join in the fun as the Community Living Board of Directors work to defend their coveted “Big Kahuna” title. All three teams will also be selling 50/50 tickets before and during the event, with one winner taking home half the pot! The winning ticket will be pulled at the event and displayed on Community Living’s website and Facebook page. 

 

“This is truly one of Community Living’s most exciting and unique events,” said Barb Griffith, President and CEO of Community Living, Inc. “The stakes are high and there’s a title to defend! We encourage area residents to bring their families to Gettemeier’s – St. Peters for an awesome night of great food, fun and entertainment for a great cause.”

 

All proceeds from the event, including tips, and a $5 cover charge, will benefit Community Living’s programs and services for people with disabilities in St. Charles County. This event, which was first held back in 2003, has raised over $174,000. Those interested in learning more about the Big Kahuna Bartender Challenge can visit www.communitylivingmo.org/events or call 636-387-5530.

Bilingual International and the Missouri Historical society are glad to present "In Search of a Base" with Dr. Jamal Fawaz in recognition of the United Nations Day in Support for Victims of Torture. 

Psychiatrist and author Dr. Jamal Fawaz discusses the innate human need to fit in, to belong, to find a "base"- specifically, the challenges for immigrants and refugees to find this base in the United States after 9/11. For younger Muslim immigrants and refugees "in search of a base," this identity struggle amongst conflicting cultural and American traditions can be especially daunting. When violence forces an individual to abandon everything they know, the struggle to find their footing in a new environment has the potential to yield less than positive results. 

The event will feature a discussion with Dr. Fawaz on his insights into how to create a welcome "base" to those who have suffered greatly, followed by a question and answer session. 

Sign language interpretation will be provided at this program.

The summer session of social dance classes is starting at St. Charles Community College the week of June 24. Classes will be held in the College Center dance studio on the SCC campus, 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville. Classes will be held June 24-Aug. 22.   

 

Learn how to swing, rumba, line dance and more with award-winning dance instructors Linda Landwehr and Stan Mayer. The eight-week session costs $52 per person. Students, ages 14 and up, should enroll with a partner.

 

According to the instructors, good dancing is a lifetime investment in fun and wellness. It’s a great way to get exercise without working out. Dancing will open up a wonderful world of togetherness, and it provides participants with a thriving, year-round social calendar.

Israeli born, St. Louis-based artist Edo Rosenblith will guide COCA visitors of all ages in creating a site-specific mural, blurring the distinction between artist and audience. Inspired by Rosenblith’s signature black and white wall drawings, the mural will reflect the thoughts, ideas, opinions and expectations expressed through collective visual impressions on COCA’s Millstone Gallery walls. Let Me Help You Make A Mural serves as a visual call and response that evolves over time, where the audience is invited to join the artist in creating a mural. The exhibition marks Rosenblith’s first time-based and community-collaborative work.

 

Curated by Yvonne Osei, Curator in Residence at COCA, the intention of this exhibition is to dissolve the boundaries between the artist’s private studio and the gallery space, inviting the public to become active participants in both the production and consumption of art.

COCA Community Open House: Saturday, June 9, 2018, 11am – 1pm
