Cub Camps

All College of Education summer camps have been canceled for 2020.

The University of Central Arkansas is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and is in regular contact with the Arkansas Department of Health. Unfortunately, this means we must begin the process of cancelling 2020 summer camps. We apologize for any inconvenience and will process refunds as soon as possible.

As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority remains the health, safety and well-being of our community, on and off campus. For the most current information, please refer to Thank you for understanding and we look forward to serving you in the future.

Please stay tuned for exciting camps to come in 2021!
