UAB Summer Camps

All programs are required to register with UAB’s Youth Protection Office. Registration includes UAB hosted or sponsored camps as well as camps using UAB facilities (such as coach run camps). Once a summer program or camp is registered with UAB’s Youth Protection Office, it does not need to register as an event.

Children can explore adventure sports, make crafts, participate in aquatic activities and more during University Recreation weekly summer camps beginning May 29. Registration opens Feb. 6.

Incoming high school freshmen and all high school students are eligible to apply to attend the 2023 Ada Long Creative Writing Workshop Summer Camp. From June 12-30, the 30 selected students will have the opportunity to work closely with accredited industry professionals.
Join the University of Alabama at Birmingham basketball head coach, Andy Kennedy, and the coaches and players of the UAB men’s basketball team as they offer local kids and young adults an exciting opportunity to stay active, learn new skills and have fun this summer through basketball.

Does your child have an interest in science? If not, would you like to pique your child's interest? CORD Middle School Summer Science Camps are designed for rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students providing an excellent opportunity to experience hands on science. Designed by UAB scientist, each camp facilitates future learning in science and mathematics.

For summer 2023, ArtPlay musical theater camps will present “Seussical, Jr.,” “The Magic Treehouse: Pirates Past Noon Kids” and “Mean Girls, Jr.” 

ArtPlay’s award-winning visual arts camps are a chance to get creative — and maybe just a little messy — with classes in drawing, painting, sculpture, crafts and more. Join local teaching artists as they guide students through the basics of color, shape and design. Each day is a new project with lots of new creations. At the end of camp, the artists will present their own creations in an art gallery for invited family and friends in the historic ArtPlay House in Five Points South.

Rising seventh- through 12th-grade students can register today for a comprehensive, music-making summer camp experience in the Magic City.
