5c Experience 2015: Coming Soon!

The 5c Experience 2015- June 15th-June 25th

The Creative and Cool Community College Camp @ WHC Lemoore

The 5c Experience (Creative, Cool, Community, College, Camp) is a two week program at West Hills College Lemoore that runs from June 15th-June 25th (Monday-Thursday; 8:30-3:00 p.m.). The program is in its 13th summer and has served over 1,800 students with a mission to plant a seed in the mind of incoming 6th-8th graders that college is in their future. We do this by bringing them into a college classroom, surround them with college mentors (9-1 college student to middle school student ratio), and engage them in a dynamic college curriculum. This year our focus will be on STEM, performing arts, career exploration, academic success skills, and wellness. You can check out our video regarding last year’s curriculum below and also check out our website using the links below:
