Campus Recreation



Campus Recreation's summer camp has a new name! Welcome to Camp ROAR! Formerly "Fike Day Camp," we're still the same on-campus summer day camp you know and love!

Summer camp is about having fun and meeting new friends, but most of all, camp is about having stories to tell all their friends when they go back to school. At Camp ROAR, campers will experience all of these things and more. From start to finish, Camp ROAR is more than a camp, it's an adventure!

We provide a variety of recreational activities that will create a fun learning environment for children ages 6-12. With all that Clemson University has to offer, campers will experience on-campus field trips, guest speakers from various Clemson departments, science experiments, crafts and, of course, plenty of recreational activities and games. Fike Recreation Center includes gym space, an eight lane pool, a climbing wall and much more for campers to experience! Campers will get to experience fun throughout the entire facility, as well as on our outdoor field space. We encourage all parents and children to check out our program!
