NSU Continuing Education to host summer camps for kids

Through its Continuing Education office, Northeastern State University will offer an array of summer camps on its Tahlequah campus for local children.

The NSU Continuing Education Summer Camps for Kids are an opportunity to have fun while learning skills. Options are available for children ages 2 and older and camps run during June and July.

“Our children’s programs are growing, and we are excited that Continuing Education is able to bring so many kids to campus,” said Deborah Amlin, coordinator of Continuing Education and Academic Outreach. “We are offering some new camps this summer and bringing back some favorites. We hope the campers’ experiences instill a sense of RiverHawks pride and that they come back for other activities year-round.”

Camps include swimming, photography, presentations by emergency responders, dancing, “triple-threat” talent camps and ACT preparation tests.

Enrollment fees vary and camps run 2-8 days. Registration is open and continues until the camps begin or reach full enrollment.
