R.E.C. Kids Camps and Clubs are designed for children ages 5-12.
Summer Camp 2013 will have 10 one-week sessions that run from June 3rd to August 9th, 2013.
Camp runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Parents can drop off their kids from 7:30am-9:00am and pick up their kids from 4:00-5:30pm. Drop-off and pick-up times are included in the cost of camp.
Campers can be dropped off at the circle at the end of Woodside Dr. (off of Martin Luther King Dr.). R.E.C. Kids will have an Assistant Coordinator outside to check in campers. Any campers dropped off after 9:00am must be escorted inside the Recreation Center by the parent or guardian. Parents exiting their vehicles should reference the parking map to see where they may temporarily park and should NOT park in the Rec Center Circle. Campus Recreation will not be held responsible for any parking tickets issued.
Campers can be picked up at the same location as drop-off. Parents must communicate early pick-ups with the Assistant Coordinator at the beginning of the day to ensure that the child is ready to go at the desired pick-up time. Parents exiting their vehicles should reference the parking map to see where they may temporarily park.
Please check out our parking diagram. Parents exiting their vehicles should not park in the Rec Center Circle, as it is a fire lane. If parking for an extended amount of time, we recommend that you utilize Campus Green or Woodside Dr. Garage.
Extended Camp Hours
Late pick-up (after 5:30pm) is not offered. In the case of late pick-ups, there will be a flat $5/day fee. For pickup after 5:45, an additional $1/minute fee will be charged on top of the $5 fee. This fee must be paid upon pick-up.
Field trips are kept to a minimum. We utilize resources on UC’s campus as much as possible. However, we will be having weekly Friday special events. Parents can find more information about these events in the weekly themes section.
The Campus Recreation Center offers Learn to Swim lessons at a discounted rate for REC Kids Campers. These swim lessons are held 4x a week and are during the camp day. The cost for swim lessons are $24/week for Members and $32/week for Non-Members. The child must be enrolled for that week of camp in order to receive the discounted rate for lessons during that week.
Camp is under the supervision of camp counselors who are college students and recreation professionals. Each counselor and professional is first-aid and CPR certified and must pass a national background check prior to being hired. The camper-to-counselor ratio is never more than 9:1.
Parents must provide lunch everyday. R.E.C. Kids Camp provides morning and afternoon snacks and all beverages for each camper. Brown bag lunches with the camper's name written in market are highly encouraged. We also make sure campers are getting plenty of fluids by taking water breaks throughout the day.
We strongly encourage campers to wear athletic shoes and comfortable clothing. Many of our events include physical activity.
We encourage that all valuables be left at home including, but not limited to, cell phones, portable video game devices, MP3 players, digital cameras, and trading cards. Campus Recreation will not be held responsible for lost or stolen items.
Unfortunately at this time, R.E.C. Kids Camp does not accept vouchers or offer scholarships.
