Kids College/Workshops

Jefferson Express is not just for adult learners! We have programming that is fun and educational for kids and their families to attend.  Jefferson Express has kids’ workshops and day camps on Art, Science, Chemistry, Dance, Music, Character Acting and Journalism.  Kids have fun and parents like them because our day camps are affordable and some are cross-curricular, supporting core curriculum standards in Science, Mathematics, Language Arts, History and Technology (STEM compliant). Much of our kids' workshop and camp programming revolves around summer day camps, offered during the months of July and August.  Kids day camps and workshops are currently held on our Jefferson Community College campus in Watertown, New York.
