Redhawks Kids Camp Announces Free Session Offer

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.,

May 29, 2008 – Southeast Missouri State University’s Department of Recreation Services is offering one free session of Redhawks Kids Camp (RKC) to children who register for four RKC sessions.

The offer, which can amount to a $130 value, is valid for both affiliated and non-affiliated rates, as well as for half-day rates, said Troy Vaughn, director of Southeast’s Recreation Services.

“As gas and food prices continue to rise, the ‘extras’ are hard to buy right now, and we would like to help ease that burden,” Vaughn said. “We hope this provides families with a great summer opportunity.”

RKC is a fun summer day camp for children ages 5-13 (or entering grades K-8 in the fall).  RKC will hold nine consecutive sessions from

June 2 to Aug. 1. This year, RKC will be housed in the Student Recreation Center–North, providing more opportunities for playing space and, most importantly, daily swimming in the new Student Aquatic Center. 

RKC counselors are Southeast students, many of whom are training to be teachers. The camp offers a safe environment for children and a great value for parents and guardians. RKC will keep youths active in recreational games, sports, arts and crafts and other fun-filled activities.
