Registration for Camps on Campus Begins on Jan. 27
UNC Charlotte's Camps on Campus offers children and young people the opportunity to join scientists, researchers, educators, writers, and actors in the creative atmosphere of a university campus. Camp offerings this year include JEDI LegoTM engineering, musical theatre, Minecraft, and smart art.
Families will notice something new this year when registering their children for the Camps on Campus program – the Niner Character Promise. In an effort to enhance Camps on Campus's culture of friendship, inclusion, and good citizenship, the camps staff created the Niner Character Promise. The new honor code encourages participants to treat fellow campers and staff with kindness, respect and cooperation in their words and actions; to seek help from others in resolving conflicts; and to respect the property of the University and others.
Last summer, nearly 1,000 children participated in Camps on Campus. Public registration begins at 8:00 AM on January 27. Visit the Camps on Campus website for more information.
