LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 5, 2019) — Still looking for high-quality summer activities for your children? University of Kentucky Human Resources' Office of Work-Life has information on more than 50 local and regional camps available from its 2019 Summer Camps Fair.

Many camps offer discounts for UK employees. The variety of camps includes those focusing on:

  • academics and arts;
  • STEM;
  • athletics and equestrian programs;
  • religion;
  • special needs; and 
  • much more.

The online directory of camps includes those in Fayette and surrounding counties. You’ll also find helpful links to other organizations, such as Lexington Parks and Recreation.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion two years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. The Chronicle of Higher Education judged us a “Great College to Work for," and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for three straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
