Colonels Camp

Colonels Camp is a summer opportunity for members of the Richmond and Madison County Community to get out of the house and socialize for a week FULL of activities at EKU Campus Recreation.

Colonels Camp is a day camp for children who are going into Kindergarten (turn 5 by August 1st, 2018) to children who have just completed 6th grade. Camp will be held Monday through Friday, 8:00am-4:45pm, with drop-off starting at 7:30 am. During this time, campers will get to experience EKU Campus Recreation and its many activities. Activities include but are not limited to indoor and outdoor games/sports, rock climbing, arts and crafts, group fitness classes, educational sessions, a field trip to Hummel Planetarium, Alumni Pool, KidsPlace, and lots of fun!!

Registration will be available online and in person at the Fitness and Wellness Center. Full payment is due at the time of registration. The fees cover the cost of field maintenance, art/craft/game supplies, field trip admissions, processing fee, and staff. Parents are responsible for packing their child's lunch each day and snacks unless otherwise noted. 

We will accept pre-registrations until the Friday before each session. There will be a minimum enrollment of 15 children and a maximum of 40 children. As long as the minimum enrollment is met, we will accept walk-in registrations the day of the event only if we have not reached our maximum. If the minimum (15) is not reached by the Friday at 4pm before camp, a full refund will be issued.
