Camp will be comprised of nine, one-week sessions. Camp sessions are Monday through Friday from 8:30am-4:30pm. Campers should be dropped off on Court # 3 of the Preston Center Gymnasium. Campers may arrive as early as 7:30am and must be picked up on Court # 3 no later than 4:30pm. After-care fees will be charged for any campers departing after 4:30pm

We will begin accepting 2016 applications and deposits from current WKU Faculty/Staff/Students on Thursday, April 14 AND Friday, April 15 from 10:00am-3:00pm both days.


Registration for WKU Alumni & the General Public will begin Monday, April 18th at 8:00am. 


All registration forms and deposits may be submitted to the WKU IM Rec Sports office located on the 2nd floor of the Preston Center.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Enrollment is limited to the first 70 campers per session. A $40.00 non-refundable deposit is required to guarantee each spot (per child, per session). The remaining balance must be received no later than noon on the Wednesday before each session. If a session is full, we will place any interested campers on a first-come, first-served waiting list.
