It is with regret we inform you that due to the impacts of COVID-19, Kennesaw State University has announced that all programs and activities scheduled to take place this summer have been cancelled; unfortunately, this includes KidCam Summer Camp with the Department of Sports and Recreation. Our desire is always to provide a safe and fun camp for our community and we feel this cancelation is in the best interest of all under the current circumstances. The campus-wide communication can be found here. KidCam will be issuing full refunds to anyone who has made a payment for KidCam Summer Camp 2020.
We wish you and your family health and happiness during these unprecedented times, and hope to see you and your campers for Summer 2021.
The Department of Sports and Recreation is excited to share a few changes for this summer. 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. We hope this will be a huge benefit to offer KSU and the surrounding community. More information about KidCam Camps can be found via their website.Continue to KidCam
