YOUTHpreneur camps at IVC, home of cockamamie kiddie inventions, bouncie houses, and blue-'n'-white balloons!


     Rebel Girl just called to turn me on to this curious "camp" opportunity, advertised at the IVC website.
     YOUTHpreneur camps? Are you kidding?
     Nope, they aren't kidding.
     I noticed a link to another site:


     Gosh, the Go-To Info dude is none other than Dan Scott, the clever probie with whom IVC President Glenn Roquemore (and family) vacationed a while back. (Naturally, Dan had no problem at all winning tenure.) No conflict-of-interest there, no sir!
     I told the Reb that we should modify these silly ads, adding "Hitler" to "Youth," that sort of thing. She didn't seem to think that was a good idea.


     How 'bout GELTpreneur camps? YOUNG REPUBpreneur camps? YUTEpreneur camps? GALOOTpreneur camps?
     Aincha proud? Once again, as far as Glenn Roquemore and his pals are concerned, IVC isn't a college. It's an anti-college.

I'd like to know which classrooms are reserved for this activity at the expense of other students during the (hot) summer. I expect I will teach in a windowless classroom whose AC sometimes works and sometimes does not. What about the camp kids? Is there anyway to find out? Community Ed programming has always been a bit sus, but I want to know if their needs take precedence over the our summer students.
