About Sparty’s Kids Camp
The designs of SKC are simple – we provide a safe and educational environment where kids have fun and enjoy their summer days. Kids coming to the camp will be involved in many games, sporting events, activities, educational opportunities, swimming, arts, and crafts, and much more. Kids will have fun in Sparty’s Kids Camp while being involved in many activities provided by SKC staff.
We are a service delivery system developed to meet the needs of the community. We are part of a team, working for the best interest of the camper, and his/her family. We are motivated to make the camp exciting and engaging for all campers. This is achieved by keeping campers physically and mentally active throughout the camp day. Through this service we endorse the development of healthy and happy young people.
Sparty's Kids Camp will be held in the Spartan Rec Center
For more information, contact Joshua Gordon, Assistant Director – Intramural Sports and Summer Camps (Gordonj2@uscupstate.edu).
