Jordan Gardner :Camp Director
Get ready for an unforgettable summer experience, brought to you by Western Kentucky University’s Department of Intramural Recreational Sports.
Our Department has hosted Camp Big Red for the past 20 years. It is a day camp for children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old. Our camp allows campers to experience positive group interactions in a safe and fun environment.
We give campers the opportunity to develop teamwork skills, experience fun adventures, and create new lasting friendships through arts & crafts, daily recreational activities, special events, sports, as well as field trips.
The Camp Big Red staff is a high-energy, dedicated team, certified in Adult & Child CPR/AED and First Aid. Our philosophy is that all activities must be SAFE, FUN, & FAIR. Campers get the care they deserve with our 8-to-1 camper-to-staff ratio. Our staff is under the direction of Jordan Gardner, Camp Director. COME JOIN THE FUN!!!
Camp sessions are Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 4:30pm with organized activities starting at 9:00am. Organized activities end at 3:30pm. Campers should be dropped off at the blue basketball courts in the Preston Center. Campers may arrive as early as 7:30am and should be picked up no later than 4:30pm. Late fees will be charged for campers picked up after 4:30pm.
