We are here to give the kids in our community, a fun, action packed, and active summer! Join us for a day, half day, week, whatever you need!
Welcome new and returning campers!
Get ready for action packed days full of adventure! Water days, fire safety, Large Animal Research Station, and fort building all are on our list of activities this summer. Our vision is to Create lifelong friendships, experiences that get you through the long winters. Hope you can make RecCamp a memorable part of your summer!
Every week your kids get to determine their own schedule. Weekly postings will keep you in the loop with where they are and what great activity they are enjoying. This summer we're super excited to bring the camp experience a new feature, Weekly Themes! Check out the picture below to see these themes.
Each week is a different experience. Campers sit down every Monday morning, break into groups based on age, and give input into that week's schedule. Most weeks include a trip to the Wood Center for bowling and swimming at the Patty Center. When we play inside we take advantage of the SRC facilities! We rock climb, play basketball and tennis, and our campers have made an art out of creating new dodgeball games! We'll have a butterfly lab and cooking corners this summer as well.
Active, healthy, and always playing!
We go outside and play ultimate frisbee, soccer, volleyball, take nature walks and build forts in the woods! Last year we walked to the Botanical Gardens and enjoyed their beauty while we had lunch. When the sun was at its brightest we had a water balloon fight and ran through the sprinklers. When the rain came we got to use the yurt for a pajama party and movie!
Important information before you come to camp!
We ask that each camper bring lunch and two snacks. We run and play all day and need to replenish our energy!All campers do need to complete the paperwork below and provide a copy of their up-to-date immunization records. The UAF Recreational camp is a state-licensed daycare facility, and we do accept daycare assistance.
