UK Community Invited to Virtual Summer Camps Roundtable

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 24, 2022) — Summer is fast approaching. And for many University of Kentucky employees, finding the right summer camp opportunities for their child will become a priority. 

To make the process easier, University of Kentucky Human Resources (HR) Work-Life invites the UK community to attend the virtual Summer Camps Roundtable from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, via Zoom. Many local camps are still finalizing their plans for the summer, so this year we are offering the virtual roundtable to meet with camp representatives. 

Employees can also review camp information on the HR website that will continue to be collected over the next couple of months. In addition, employees can check out the e-brochure with camp date, fees and contact information. The types of camps range from athletics to arts to academic and more.

“All parents with school-age children know the importance of securing good, reliable child care during the summer. We also know you have to start early with your research and registrations,” said Azetta Beatty, HR Work-Life manager. “Annually, HR Work-Life shares summer camps information on our website for UK employees. We don’t endorse any camp or program, but we recommend parents review the information and ask questions that matter to them. Our goal is to assist parents on their journey to secure summer child care.”

For more information about the Summer Camps Roundtable on March 2, and to register and view a 2022 directory of camps, please visit the Summer Camps Roundtable website.

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
