Kids Camp Programming
New Friends - Unique Learning Experiences - Fun
Kids Camp programming includes a variety of recreation-based one day, evening and week-long camps designed for children in Kindergarten through 6th grade (ages 5 - 12) emphasizing physical development and education while promoting a healthy lifestyle. Activities are conducted primarily at the BGSU Student Recreation Center and other Recreation and Wellness facilities including the BGSU Ice Arena, Forrest Creason Golf Course, and Perry Field House. Walking field trips, special guests, and sport instruction are offered to complement the foundation of recreational, leisure, and social activities on which the camps are founded.
The Recreation and Wellness Kids Camp program provides participants fun experiences that empower physical, emotional, social, and intellectual growth. Safety and respect are foremost while a desire for lifelong learning is instilled in each camper. A supportive environment encourages pride in individual achievement, regardless of ability.
