The camp runs MondayFriday, from June 16-Aug. 1, 2014, and includes half-day morning sessions and full-day sessions. Early registration is encouraged as some sessions can fill fast. KIDS U is held at the University of Nevada, Reno and is a great way to introduce young scholars and student athletes to campus activities and experiences while enjoying a summer of fun.
