Military Teen Adventure Camps

Welcome to our KY MTAC page!  We are super excited to announce that we are able to offer summer camps for military families in 2022!  Military parents (service member or spouse) and their teenage children (ages 13-18) are invited to attend exciting adventure camps together. Everything, including equipment, lodging, food and transportation allowances, is included! These camps are not only fun, they offer an incredible opportunity for military parents and their teens to reconnect and make memories that will last a lifetime!

*There is a $40 registration fee for each participant that will only need to be paid if admitted to a camp (includes a t-shirt, or water bottle, etc.). Aside from this, the camp is completely free to all military family members.

2022 Summer Camp Registration will open Wednesday, May 11th at 12pm (EST)!

  1. Please be advised before you register: Each participant (parent and attending children) will be required to complete 14 days of pre-screening of symptoms prior to camp. Covid Test ARE NOT Required.
  2. Military Adventure Camps are open to Active Duty, Guard, Reserve and Veteran families only (if you do not meet this criteria please do not apply)!
  3. You will need to register each participant in your family.  This includes 1 adult (only) and any teens that meet the age requirement.
  4. The initial registration is to apply for the camps. Once you are admitted, additional registration information will be required for the specific camp.
  5. You will be notified by email and or by the KY MTAC team if admitted to camp. At that time you will be instructed to finish the registration process.
  6. Please allow up to 2-3 business days before contacting the MTAC team about the status of your registration.  We have limited time to process applications, but please trust we will do our best to get back with you.
  7. If you have questions or need any help (besides the status of your family’s application) please feel free to contact us!
  8. If you are a returning family you should be able to use your email and account from 2021.

All guests on the University of Kentucky campus (or guests of University of Kentucky programs) will abide by the current COVID policies in place. Information about the current UK COVID policy can be found HERE - . If any changes occur, UK Family and Consumer Sciences Extension will communicate to all summer program participants before arriving to campus (or to programs being held off-campus). Furthermore, each camp family is asked to fill out a 14-day pre-screening form for each individual attending the camp and bring it with them to camp. Adult and youth screening forms will be emailed upon acceptance to camp.
