Baylor REC Day Camp

Baylor REC Camp is a week-long, summer experience for kids ages six to twelve, serving the families of Baylor faculty and staff, and taking place in eight sessions over the course of the summer. Held on the Baylor University campus, the camp program provides a wide array of sports, indoor and outdoor recreation, select water activities, and specialty interests. The camp will place an emphasis on character development taught using Biblical principles. Large group time will include team games, fun skits, and camper instruction. Baylor REC Camp is facilitated through the Campus Recreation Department and staffed by Baylor professionals and well-trained student employees.

Camp Experience
The Baylor REC Camp experience provides an exciting summer alternative for parents seeking to keep their kids engaged both physically and relationally, while also stimulating personal growth. The professional approach, world class facilities, and variety of camp activities makes Baylor REC Camp a win for all involved! The camp program schedule will remain consistent throughout the summer. However, the experiences, activities, events, and themes will generally change from one week to the next to keep REC Camp fun and fresh for kids attending multiple weeks. Campers will be placed in teams according to their ages and will do most camp activities within these teams.
