Kids’ Programs

U of A Hope is proud to offer KIDS’ COLLEGE, CAMP SAVE-A-LIFE, JUNIOR RANGER EXPLORER, and SAFE SITTER® to our community.

  • KIDS’ COLLEGE is a summer enrichment program for children entering into 1st – 6th grades.
  • CAMP SAVE-A-LIFE is a one-week summer medical camp for students who have completed 6th grade up through age 14.
  • MIGRANT TECH CAMP, an annual tech camp for 8th- to 12th-grade students of migrant families, is a collaboration with the South Arkansas Migrant Education Cooperative which exposes the students to a technology career, such as computer maintenance and basic coding, while familiarizing them with our college campus.  Students are chosen from all over the Southwest Arkansas area to attend the technology classes at the U of A Hope campus.
  • JUNIOR RANGER EXPLORER CAMP is a grant-funded partnership with the National Park Service. Camp will be held each summer only if funds are available.
  • SAFE SITTER® is a program to teach young adolescents to babysit other children. It also gives children ages 11 and up the skills necessary to safely stay at home alone.

Our goal is to offer children and their families a positive first experience with U of A Hope through an exciting program of courses.
