Summer Camp

The Department of Sports and Recreation is excited to share some exciting changes. We are working with a group – Kidcam Camps, that specializes in Summer Day Camp. Joining with Kidcam Camps provides more resources to our camp program, and enables additional features such as before-care and after-care and a greater variety of activities. For campers entering Kindergarten through age 13, the Spirit of Summer comes to life through the power of Kidcam Camp at Kennesaw State University's Department of Sports and Recreation.

Kidcam’s unique “Kid’s Choice” curriculum keeps our Rockstars (campers) fully engaged in daily activities & programs they choose. Kidcam’s Mission, through the Spirit of Summer, is designed to build a powerful summer camp experience that will inspire greatness, bring smiles to faces, and ensure personal preference with a mix of Kid’s Choice curriculum, sports, arts, movement, swimming, and long-standing traditions that create memorable moments and lasting relationships.

We hope this will be a huge benefit to offer KSU and the surrounding community. More information about Kidcam Camp can be found via their website.
