May 24, 2018– For the month of June, Northern Kentucky University’s Campus Rec Center (CRC) is opening its doors to the community. Starting June 1, the CRC will have free access every Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.

CRC will host family focused activities each Friday like a Kids Climb on the Bouldering Wall or indoor soccer. There will also be a “Dive in Movie” where you watch your favorite movie while floating in the pool. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

“We know families are looking for activities during the summer, so we created some fun programs that help kids burn off some energy,” said Jill Wood, CRC associate director for Recreational Programs. “We hope people come out for Free Fridays and see what our Rec Center has to offer.”
