Kidcam Summer Camp @ Kennesaw Sports & Recreation
For campers entering Kindergarten through age 13, the Spirit of Summer comes to life through the power of Kidcam Camp at Kennesaw’s Sports & Rec Department at Kennesaw State University.
Kidcam’s unique “Kid’s Choice” curriculum keeps our Rockstars (campers) fully engaged in daily activities & programs they choose. Kidcam’s Mission, through The Spirit of Summer, is designed to build a powerful summer camp experience that will inspire greatness, bring smiles to faces, and ensure personal preference with a mix of Kid’s Choice curriculum, sports, arts, movement, swimming, and long-standing traditions that create memorable moments and lasting relationships.
Based at the Owl’s Nest, campers will also enjoy time at the Perch and Rec Center. Camp will also offer extended hours with Before & After Care, as well as the ability to schedule week-to-week, as camp is needed.
**Please note this is a Summer Day camp program facilitated by the Sports & Rec dept. It offers traditional, day camp programs from sports, art, science swimming, and STEM. It is not the specialty camps offered by the College of Professional Education.
