Summer Camp




Daily Schedule




Campus Recreation Summer Camps are located in our state-of-the-art Student Recreation Center at 51 Stadium Boulevard. The camp is open to boys and girls ages 7-13 years old.  This year we are offering two camp age groups.  Our South Paw Camp ages 7-10 and our Jaguars Camp ages 11-13.  These camps will meet at the same times and will do some activities together such as swimming and lunch but will be divided during certain sports and activities.   These camps are geared towards high-energy sports activities. Children will participate in a different activity each hour from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Lunch will be provided on campus at the Fresh Food Market’s “all you can eat” buffet.  Session 8 and 9 Campers will be required to bring a sack lunch to camp because the Fresh Food Market will be closed.  A discounted rate will be offered.

Step One:  A verbal warning will be given to the camper informing them that a rule has been broken and that they are acting inappropriately.  The camper will be asked to explain the behavior and be warned not to continue the inappropriate behavior.


Step Two:  If a camper’s behavior remains unsatisfactory after a verbal warning, they will be sent to time out.  The camper will sit out of the activity for up to 10 minutes, depending on the age of the camper.


Step Three: The final step is the discipline report.  The parent will be called and notified of their camper’s inappropriate behavior.  A discipline report will be filled out by the camper and Camp Counselor stating the situation, and actions taken by camper and counselor.  If the camper receives more than two discipline reports during a single day, the parent will be notified to come and pick up the camper.
