Little Jack Rec Camp - Summer 2020 update: Available for children ages 7 to 12.

Read content in its entirety as there have been changes throughout.
(last update: July 2)

Every summer, the Campus Recreation department 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 7 to 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 the day.

Sessions emphasize some core values of our department: teamwork, communication, sportsmanship and fun. All activities have a noncompetitive nature, and staff work with campers to improve basic skills used in most sports. The camp is non-sport specific, and activities are geared toward beginner and intermediate skill levels.

2020 Summer Camp Sessions:

  • Week One: July 6 to 10
  • Week Two: July 13 to 17
  • Week Three: July 20 to 24
  • Week Four: July 27 to 31
  • Week Five: Aug. 3 to 7

Note: Campus Rec and LJRC remain open during SFA's furlough days.
