Summer is coming soon

We've compiled a list of local resources to help you find in-person and virtual summer camps. All information will be subject to change according to COVID-19 restrictions, so we encourage you to contact the camps individually for the most up-to-date information. You can visit our current list here, view our 2021 camp booklet or check out the camp schedule. If you're curious about other camps which were featured in the past, please reference the 2020 booklet. If you want to list a summer camp on our website, email for more information.

You have access to our community of child care providers only available to University of Kentucky employees and students through Big Blue Family Care.

Additionally we maintain an up-to-date list of child care centers and community programs, the Little Cats Guide for new parents, educational materials and exclusive discounts for UK parents.
