The Community Education Office at EACC is a non-credit, lifelong learning program. Its mission is to improve the quality of life and stimulate the economy by providing cultural and educational opportunities for the community.
EACC is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely as we prepare and plan for summer camps. EACC wants to take all precautions to make sure that your child is safe and healthy. We are still moving forward with planning for Kids On Campus July Summer Camps to take place. It is crystal clear to us that all of our kids need summer camps more now than ever. Social distancing is hard on all of us, especially our children. EACC Kids on Campus Summer Camps is a special place providing our children with opportunities to grow socially, physically, and educationally. Please continue to watch our social media platforms for the most current information on camps. We miss your children and looking forward to having them back on campus!
EACC will follow the Safety Guidelines and Directive for Camps released by the Arkansas Health Department.
