The Aquabots Summer Camp is a DAY camp offered on the UK campus from July 29, 2013 to August 2, 2013. Students will be engaged in supervised activities from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM.  If students need to be dropped off prior to 9:00 AM, supervision can be provided no earlier than 8:00AM for a $50 charge. Students will be dismissed at the end of the day to a parent/guardian or approved adult chaperone. The camp is a 5-day camp and commitment to all five days is required for consideration as a camp participant.
