Recreational Oppurtunities for Carolina Kids

This event is for Carolina students, faculty, and staff to have an opportunity to play and exercise with their kids. Kids ROCK is designed to expose Carolina kids to a variety of fun, healthy activities, and to combat a national rise in the incidence of juvenile obesity and diabetes. As this is a chance for parents and their children to interact with one another in an active environment, we do welcome children of all ages to Kids ROCK events. 


  • This is a free program thanks to the genorisity of our staff and special guest instructors.
  • All we ask is that you register at least 2 days ahead of the program you want to attend so that we can plan appopriately.
