Little Jack Rec Camp

This 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 camps will emphasize some core values of our department: teamwork, communication, sportsmanship, and FUN! All activities have a noncompetitive nature and camp staff will 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.

Summer 2014 Camp Registration: Begins Tuesday, April 1 at 8am
