Welcome to Fun Camp!

The Rec/IM Department at EMU is offering an exciting opportunity for your child/children to participate in a multi-dimensional day camp designed to promote friendship and fun!

We are fortunate to be affiliated with a campus that offers a variety of resources to tap into as we plan our program. Campers will participate in groups with children of similar ages. Activities will be programmed to accommodate the interests and skill levels of each group. All children will have opportunities to interact together each day.


Children ages 7 (or entering 2nd grade in the fall) through 12.


Fun camp is managed by two Rec/IM professional staff members. The counselors are EMU students who are passionate about working with children and are studying education, recreation and other related degree programs.

Rockin' Reading: Rockin' Reading will provide campers with reading and literacy experiences on Monday and Wednesday mornings for about 30-45 minutes. Counselors will be creating, planning, and implementing activities which will include everything from read-alouds chosen by campers, collaborative literature circles to compare and contrast book content, themes, characters, writing styles, etc..., inventive poetry sessions, and many more!


Parents enrolling their child should send them with a lunch (or money to buy food on site), and a daily snack. The campers will eat lunch at the Student Center on Fridays. They may purchase food from the various vendors there or bring their own. The cost to purchase a lunch is approximately $5.00.



Comfortable play clothes and shoes, swimsuit and towel. Shoes should be running shoes or sandals with a heel strap. If your child desires to wear flip-flops or sandals without straps, please make sure they have another set of safe shoes for active games and activities.

Swim Lessons

A unique feature of our Fun Camp experience is swim lessons where campers will acquire lifelong aquatic skills. They will receive lessons one afternoon per week and enjoy free swim time every afternoon. A swimsuit and towel are required for each camper.

Special Notes

If your child is under seven years of age, please contact the EMU Children's Institute at 734.487.2348 for information regarding their Flights of Imagination Program.
