Broken Arrow R.A.C.E. Summer Youth Academies

NSU Continuing Education, College of Education, and RACE Youth Summer Academies are monitoring all situations with COVID-19. At this point we will offer all camps face to face and online on both the Tahlequah and Broken Arrow Campus as long as the CDC guidelines do not amend.

A variety of academies are available including Jurassic Academy, MineCraft, Power of Nature, Photography, Scooby Doo, Treasure Hunters Academy, the Avengers Academy, Video Game Design, Robotics and much more! 

All precautions will be taken following CDC guidelines and NSU mama guidelines; many of our teachers are parents and have added additional guidelines for us to follow. Your child's safety is of most importance to us.
1. Temperatures will be taken 3 times a day (students & staff)
2. No adults in the building except teachers and staff.
3. Drop off and pick up car lines.
4. Masks provided.
5. Disinfection three times a day.
