Camp Big Red
The Kidcam Difference
For campers ages 5 through 13, the Spirit of Summer comes to life through the power of Kidcam Camp at Western Kentucky University. Kidcam at Camp Big Red will provide a summer camp experience for 9 weeks throughout the summer beginning June 5, and running Monday through Friday until August 4.
Kidcam’s weekly activities held at The Preston Center promote fun, fitness, friendship, and creativity. Campers celebrate a different theme each week, while incorporating a curriculum filled with sports, creative arts, STEM, team building games, life skills, talent shows, swimming and water play, along with 50 years of memorable Kidcam traditions.
It is all based on Kidcam Camp's mission: Through the Spirit of Summer, we build a powerful summer camp experience that inspires greatness, brings smiles to faces, and ensures personal growth.
