Our award-winning Kids U summer camps are exclusive opportunities for area youth in grades 3-12. Children come to UT and learn from college faculty, staff, and graduate students in fields such as art, chemistry, cooking, anthropology, photography, microbiology, computers and veterinary medicine. Camps are offered for one week in the morning or afternoon.
Please register early. Class sizes are limited, and camps fill up quickly.

Attention Parents: We offer a lunch option to students enrolled in a morning and afternoon Kids U camp at the University of Tennessee Conference Center (UTCC). With this lunch option, you’ll no longer be crunched for time picking up your child, grabbing lunch, and bringing him/her back to the UTCC before the next camp starts. Your child will have a supervised lunch provided during the time between the morning and afternoon camps. If your child only has a morning camp, they may stay until 1:15 PM and have lunch. If your child only has an afternoon camp, they may arrive at 11:30 AM to have lunch first. Lunch times may vary depending on the time of your child’s camp. You must register and pay for the lunch option at least one week prior to the week your child will be attending. Note: If your child has a camp on campus and wants to eat lunch at the UTCC, you’ll need to provide transportation for them. Transportation will NOT be provided by Kids U.
