Camp U Club
Fine Arts Program
With the summer months come a flurry of outdoor activities for our younger members. Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to noon, Camp U Club is in full swing with programming including: the children's summer reading program, dive-in movies, field trips, various sports, board games, a garden, and an arts and crafts program. In addition to its morning offerings, the club hosts Friday Night Weenie Roasts, with complimentary s'mores and hot dogs poolside for children and their families.
The arts and crafts program provides a variety of fun and educational events throughout the summer, infusing the arts into core curricular subject matter such as science, history, language, culture, and mathematics. The arts and crafts program is headed up by students or graduates majoring in a Teaching Artist Program all of whom have at least two years' experience teaching in local public schools, community centers, or inner-city youth programs.
All kids between the ages of 5 and 15 are eligible to join the University Club's swim team.The Swimming Team at the club is centered around the development of technique for the four competitive strokes, Freestyle, Breaststroke, Backstroke and Butterfly. Each camper will participate in one of 5 swimming group based on their skill level and/or age. Each class will run for 45 minutes each day. During the summer the team will swim against teams from other clubs in the St. Paul area. Emphasis is put on participation and competition. Our coaching staff is a mix of veteran coaches and past high school and college swimmers. Our goal is to see an improvement in technique and stamina by the end of the summer.
All members between the ages of 5 and 15 may enroll in the University Club's tennis camp to enhance their skill and technique. Our coaches focus on the basic tennis strokes as well as game strategy and always emphasize the importance of having fun. Organized group and private lessons are also available for any ages. Tennis matches are arranged with with other private clubs.

In August, the club's younger demographic is invited on the very popular camping trip to Stout's Island Lodge (www.stoutsislandlodge.net). With their sleeping bags, tents, fishing poles, and bug spray, the kids and their chaperones head off for a three-day camping trip on the private rustic island... an excellent way to wrap up the summer!
