Following consultation with UM-Flint staff and administrators, UM-Flint has decided to cancel the Recreation Center summer youth camps, Camp Summer Fun and Youth Basketball Camp for summer 2017. This comes as a result of potential impact of the current Consumers Energy project along the Flint River bank on campus. We did attempt to come up with alternative dates and plans, but we believe those plans would have created a greater inconvenience for camp attendees and families than simply cancelling the camps outright. Even though these camps are being cancelled, the Recreation Center will remain open throughout the summer for other recreational activities.
The Consumers Energy riverbank restoration project is providing an opportunity for a safer, healthier, and more beautiful UM-Flint campus that we all love. We hope to see you at future UM-Flint Recreation Center activities and will inform you of all future activities for you and your family.
On behalf of our camp counselors who were enthusiastic for this year’s camps and our dedicated Rec Center staff, we would like to apologize for this cancellation.
