The Department of Campus Recreation offers summer camps at its Student Recreation Center. Camps focus on recreational and physical activities such as rock wall climbing, ping-pong, outdoor games, sports, and more.

Per the university's Reopening Committee, our 2021 summer camps will be open to children* of current USA students, employees, and Student Recreation Center members only. Registration will begin on Monday, March 22, 2021. We hope that our loyal families who are not affiliated with USA will join us again in 2022.

*"Children" is defined as children who live with you and for whom you are the primary caregiver.
