Roar-ee's Cubs Camp is a day camp for children ages 6 through 12. The camp offers athletics, arts & crafts, and team-building games, all in a collegiate setting! Cubs Camp happens annually over nine weekly summer sessions, two holiday sessions, and one spring session. Campers will have access to Columbia's top-notch Division 1 Athletic facilities, and a competent and caring staff comprised of coaches, student-athletes, and teachers. These trained staff members help campers develop their knowledge of sports, increase their love of physical activity, improve their sportsmanship, and gain athletic confidence. The goal of Roar-ee's Cubs Camp is to provide a memorable sports summer camp experience while promoting team-work, friendship, and self-confidence in a safe community. Campers are encouraged to work, play together, try new things, and most importantly, have fun!
