UK Work-Life Summer Camps Fair to Ease Search for Child Care


LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 14, 2015) — The University of Kentucky Office of Work-Life, within UK Human Resources, would like to make your search for great summer camps and/or summer childcare for your child(ren) or grandchild(ren) a little easier this year. 

Save the date of Tuesday, March 3, for the 2nd Annual Summer Camps Fair. The fair will be held 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in the UK Student Center Grand Ballroom, and is open to all faculty, staff and students. Spouses and partners are also welcome and encouraged to attend. Early registration is available at

“Parents at UK will have the opportunity to meet with camp representatives from programs focused on everything from art to sports to academics. There will also be an opportunity to learn more about the Big Blue Family Care program and find a child care provider for the summer,” said Erika Chambers, director of the Office of Work-Life.

Camps and activities from Fayette and surrounding counties will be at the event.  Many camps are offering early-bird prices, UK employee discounts, extended hours, and/or pre-registration for those who attend.  The Office of Work-Life hopes that this event will help members of the UK community find summer camps, programs and child care that meet their families' summer care needs.

Visit the Work-Life Summer Camps website at for more information; descriptions of participating camps will be added to the site soon. Contact the Office of Work-Life at with any questions.
