Colonels Camp

Colonels Camp returns for another 8 exciting weeks this summer, each with a unique theme and fun filled activities for children in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade.

Colonels Camp is for children in Kindergarten to Sixth Grade.

Colonels Camp is Campus Recreation’s week long camp session for children. In addition to experiencing the Student Recreation Center and the EKU Campus, children will participate in a variety of activities including swimming, rock climbing, sports, games, crafts, fitness classes, education sessions, field trips and more.

Colonels Camp will be held at the Student Recreation Center at Eastern Kentucky University. Additional campus locations will be used for activities. Colonels Camp will travel off campus for field trips, but will stay within the state.


This summer, there will be 8 weeks of Colonels Camp.

  • June 3rd – 7th (Adventure Week)
  • June 10th – 14th (Sports Week)

The overall mission of Colonels Camp is to provide children development opportunities of transferable skills, such as communication, teamwork, listening and critical thinking, while exploring all forms of recreation and having fun at the same time. Campus Recreation plans to achieve this through encouraging children to participate in exciting activities throughout the week and effectively working together with other children.
