Are you looking for an awesome way for you little Blazers to get active this Summer? URec Summer Camps are perfect for you!

This is a great opportunity for children to explore adventure sports, exciting crafts, aquatic activities, and everything Campus Recreation has to offer under one roof.

The Summer Camp schedule is from 9:00am - 4:00pm and the age range for Summer Camps is 5-12 years of age. Campers will need to provide their own lunch.

We look forward to spending time with your little Blazers while you get some free time to yourself!

Please contact our Dylan McCareeth, our Coordinator of Competitive Sports and Camps, for more information or if you have any questions at 205-975-1252 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Please note that registration for all camps closes one week in advance to the camp, or once our camper capacity is reached.
