Basic Camp Info:

What and Where is Roomie's REC Camp?

Roomie's REC Camp is located at 1350 North General Pershing Street, on Southeastern's campus (across from the University Center). We are a unique camp that focuses on creating a fun,  engaging, and safe atmosphere for kids to play and learn. Our weekly program features sports, games, fitness activities, STEM activities, crafts, culinary activities, swimming, off-campus field trips and camp performances all designed so kids will have an absolute, total blast. 

Roomie's REC Camp facilitators and counselors work to create a setting of exploration and discovery, where children build self-esteem and self-confidence and learn about teamwork and friendship. 

There are three principles that are woven into Roomie's Rec Camp:

1. Safety - the campers' safety is our number one priority;
2. Engagement - each camper is encouraged to give their all and participate in all activities, allowing them to have an amazing camp experience;
3. Inclusion - at Roomie's Rec Camp we see all children as unique and amazing in their own way.  We treat the children like our own!

What are the Camp Hours?

Our normal camp hours are 8am-4pm!

We do offer extended care, though! You can purchase Before Care (6:45-7:45am) or After Care (4:15pm-6pm) for $15/week ($30/week for both before and after care).

How old does my camper have to be?

We accept campers ages 4-12. 

We accept a select number of 13-15 year olds as Junior Counselors.

We strive to keep your camper engaged, active, and safe with structured recreational games, sports, and team building activities! We also incorporate Astro Camp activities, culinary and STEM activities into the weekly camp, as well as swimming and offcampus field trips

Other Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the counselors' qualifications?

Our camp counselors are all current or incoming Southeastern students. We don't require a specific major, although the majority tend to be education majors.

Each camp counselor is required to be CPR/AED and First Aid certified, and receive training from Child Advocacy Services. We also mandate a background check.

In addition to those requirements, each counselor goes through training to facilitate all the fun and education activities that your camper will go through each week!

Is there a discount if I register multiple children?

No. The only time our weekly tuition prices are modified are Week 1 ($128) and Week 6 ($96), which are reduced due to being a 4-day and 3-day week of camp because of holidays.

Can I pay online?

No. At this time, payments can only be received in person or over the phone. We're working towards providing an online payment process in the future.

Is there a registration fee?

Nope! The only charges you receive are: weekly tuition, before and/or after care (optional), and an additional camp T-shirt (optional).

When are camp shirts given out?

Each camper receives a camp T-shirt on the first day of camp they attend. We expect each child to wear their camp T-shirt on Wednesdays for field trips, so that each camper is easily identifiable as we go off campus for the field trips.

However, your child is also allowed to wear their camp shirt throughout the week as well!
