Camp Big Red


Western Kentucky University
Camp Big Red 2021 has ceen canceled
Camp Big Red 2021 canceled due to lack of available staff.

We regret to inform you that Camp Big Red has been cancelled for the summer of 2021.  We have continually worked to provide a summer Camp experience for 2021, but we have been ultimately unable to make this happen.  Camp Big Red, like all programs and services offered by Campus Recreation & Wellness relies on student employees to be successful.  Since returning to operations after the Covid-19 pause, it has been increasingly difficult in all our services to find the student employment support necessary for these offerings.  This challenge has forced us to make several adjustments such as reducing our facility’s operating hours, the number of programs and services we are offering, etc.  While we know that this is not what our participants wanted to hear, we felt the need to make this move now to hopefully provide as much opportunity to find alternatives as possible.

We will continue to take this time to plan for our intended goal of Camp Big Red 2022 being better than ever!
