There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding each of us due to COVID-19, but the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton has found a way to continue its summer camps. The 2020 program for students entering 5th to 12th grades will be five-day virtual camps.

The two virtual camps, which is conducted through UACCM Workforce Development and Community Education, will feature art and creative writing. The summer camps will begin on June 1st. To ensure high-quality instruction, space is limited in each camp. Applications will be accepted online at with a deadline of the Wednesday before each camp.

The summer camps provide young people a venue to share common interests with other youth, reflect on their skills, and build their interest under the guidance of UACCM instructors. UACCM encourages students to be active this summer and meet new people, all while practicing social distancing. 

Each camp will consist of two-hour sessions between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Be Your Artself camp will be divided into two age groups: 5th to 8th graders and 9th to 12th graders. Each art project will change every day and will use common household items.

The creative writing camp is offered to 7th to 12th graders, which will cover fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama/screenplay writing genres.

To register and fully participate in the camps, students must have a computer, tablet, or a mobile device. Students are encouraged to use webcams. For more information, contact Workforce Development and Community Education, at 501-977-2189, or
