DENTON (UNT), Texas --  In June 2012, grandparents and their grandchildren can study astronomy, stop-frame clay animation or a number of other subjects at the University of North Texas

Grandparents University®, a multi-generational summer camp learning experience, is back for its fourth year in 2012. The camp, which runs from June 21 (Thursday) through June 22 (Friday), offers grandparents and their grandchildren, ages 7 through 12, the opportunity to attend classes together and earn a Grandparents University degree by "majoring" in two subject areas. The camp wraps up with a graduation ceremony in UNT's Gateway Center.

Subject areas include fingerprint identification, digital photography, creative art, veterinary medicine, robotics, astronomy, computer animation, jewelry making, chemistry, stop-frame clay animation, and apparel merchandising and textiles in the fashion industry.

Other optional activities include an evening swimming activity at no cost and a trip to Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch for an additional $15 per person.

Grandparents and their grandchildren also have the option of spending the night in a UNT residence hall to experience college life. Costs range from $350 to $450.
