Camp K-Day Registration is OPEN!

It’s that time of year again, K-Day registration time!! K-Day Registration is officially open, so reserve your spot now! Space and resources are limited, so do not delay!  This year’s theme will have you wanting s’more at Camp K-Day!  Organizations can get creative with this summer camp-themed student organization fair!
K-Day, or Keweenaw Day, is an annual tradition that will be held on Friday, September 10 beginning at noon. Students head to Chassell Centennial Park for an afternoon of food, fun, and music – it’s like a week of summer camp all in one afternoon!  K-day typically sees 3000-4000 students so this is an important recruitment opportunity for your organization.  Please have your organization’s event finalized before registering HERE.  

* Keep in mind, the person you list as the primary contact for your organization’s registration will be the one receiving all communications.  They will need to keep an eye out for emails during the summer in case of any changes that are made to K-Day due to any updates we may need to make in regards to our campus Healthy and Safety Levels. 
Questions about K-Day can be directed to Rochelle Spencer at raspence@mtu.edu
