NMU to hold open house for camps

MARQUETTE — An open house for Northern Michigan University’s Wildcat Kids and Tween camps will be held next week in the PEIF building on campus.

The PEIF Dance Studio, room 130, will host the open house from 4 to 5:30 p.m. next Thursday.

The camps are sponsored by NMU’s Recreational Sports department and run from June 10 to Aug. 21.

The open house allows parents and guardians to meet camp staff, tour the sports complex, complete online registration as needed and provide an opportunity to answer questions. Campers can play games, make a craft and meet their future camp counselors.

Wildcat Kids Camp is a traditional summer camp for children from 5 years old through the fifth grade. Each week is packed with games, crafts, swimming, skating, climbing, special events, outdoor adventures and even the new sport of log rolling.

Cost is $150 for a five-day week from 6:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or $35 daily.

Wildcat Tween Camp provides sixth- to eighth-graders a chance to learn valuable life skills, make friends, develop character and discover new interests. Activities include swimming, sports games, crafts, outdoor adventures, a climbing wall, ice skating, kayaking in the pool, team-building initiatives and log rolling.

Camp is held Monday through Thursday each week for $35 per day or $40 on Wednesdays for trip day.

Preregistration is required online at www.nmu.edu/recreation. For more information, email the Rec Sports office at PEIF Room 126 at recsport@nmu.edu or call 227-2519. The office’s summer hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays.
