For a second year, Missouri State University's recreation center offers Camp Claw. Priced at $175 per week, the day camp offers children ages 6 to 12 the opportunity to develop their health and wellness through a series of sessions from June 5 through August 5.

Our weekly program, Missouri State Journal, is a collaboration between KSMU Radio and Missouri State University. It's hosted and produced by MSU's Office of Strategic Communication, and it airs each Tuesday morning at 9:45 a.m. on KSMU.

The Bill R. Foster Recreation Center at Missouri State University will be hosting Camp Claw this summer after a successful inaugural year in the summer of 2022.

Thomas Morris, camp director and the assistant director of campus recreation and Lauren Easter, the associate director of campus recreation, discuss more about Camp Claw.
