Parents looking to keep their children productive over the summer have plenty of options. The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton is hosting activities and camps this summer on topics from creative writing to welding to drafting to math and literacy camps for young children.

The purpose of the summer camps is to provide young people a venue to share common interests with others their age, learn new skills, or build on what they know under the guidance of UACCM instructors.

Students must register to attend to reserve their seat, as these camps have limited space. Registration is available here.
