GREENPORT — With summer camps in Columbia County canceled this year and many other programs in limbo, Columbia-Greene Community College has joined forces with Black Rocket Productions LLC, to offer families with children ages eight to 14 an alternative.
A provider of digital arts and creative sciences camps, Black Rocket has partnered with C-GCC to provide a series of online, educational programs this summer, slated to run for seven weeks from Monday, June 29 through Monday, August 10. The courses are taught live by trained instructors and available to students anywhere, with two online camps running each week.
Students will participate in both Black Rocket’s Creator Corps™ community — which offers access to games, challenges, and the 2020 International STEAM Competition — and in smaller break-out sessions with other students and instructors.
Tuition starts at $149 and varies by course. More information, including registration details and a full schedule, can be found at https://blackrocket.com/online/gre/.
To introduce families to their offerings, Black Rocket and C-GCC are currently offering free open game-play sessions and eSports live streams at 4 p.m. each day, Monday through Friday. These free-play opportunities provide a sneak-peek into the online camps C-GCC and Black Rocket will offer this summer.
