Day camps are designed for parents who have to work while their children are not in school. The Columbus Day Camp is a one-day program offering many of the same great activities as the summer camp, such as swimming, rock climbing, arts, crafts and more. Children will have the opportunity to explore a variety of activities — everything UAB Campus Recreation has to offer under one roof. Day Camps run from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. with additional before and after care options. Snacks are provided, but campers need to provide their own lunch. The cost is $40 for UAB affiliates and $50 for non-UAB affiliates.

Enrollment for Columbus Day Camp will close Oct. 1 at 5 p.m. All other fall day camps will remain open until a week prior to the specific camp day. Email or call 205-996-5038 for information, or register online by Oct. 1. A list of future day camps is online.
