Little Jack Rec Camp

Little Jack Rec Camp

Every summer, Campus Rec is proud to offer a recreational day camp for the youth of the SFA and Nacogdoches communities.

The Little Jack Rec Camp program is a fun recreational, motivational and educational adventure for children ages 5-12. Camp sessions are one week in length and structured like a normal day of regular school with campers moving through our facilities participating in different programs throughout each day.

The camp sessions emphasize some core values of our department: teamwork, communication, sportsmanship, and FUN! All activities have a noncompetitive nature and camp staff work with campers to improve basic skills used in most sports.

This is a non-sport specific camp and all activities are geared towards beginner and intermediate skill levels.

Registration for Summer 2015 camp sessions opens Wednesday, April 1st at 8am!

Cost of Enrollment

Payments may be made on the balance due at any time prior to the first day of camp. By the opening day of camp, all payments must be completed per camper. Cash, check, and debit/credit card payments can be accepted at the Campus Recreation Administrative Office.
