‘Summer Experiences’ website compiles MTSU summer camps info

If you’re considering a summer camp for your youngsters, there are endless options.

MTSU offers dozens of choices — music, sports, journalism, something of a scientific nature and more — but the university has made it easier for anyone planning to attend a camp on campus.

The recently launched MTSU Summer Experiences website, http://mtsu.edu/camps, brings nearly 60 opportunities to the table.

With so many camps throughout campus, MTSU officials realized a central location to enable campers and their families to view all the options would be beneficial.

“We have launched a new site hoping to provide summer activities to everyone from young children to adults,” said Andrew Oppmann, vice president of marketing and communications at MTSU.

“The Summer Experiences site has a range of camps, seminars and other educational activities, including learning a new language, aviation, a number of sports camps, storytelling and the prestigious Governor’s School for the Arts.”

The list includes CUSTOMS, the university’s annual orientation with 10 two-day sessions for incoming freshmen and eight one-day sessions transfer students throughout the spring and summer.

The Web list features the camp name and primary contact, dates and deadlines, cost, a brief description and the age group the camp targets.

Along with the annual MT Sampler Camp — which gives invited high school students an opportunity to discover all aspects of the 500-acre campus — here’s a sampling of summer choices at MTSU:

  • The Wright Music Building houses both the Stamps Baxter School of Music July 12-25 for ages 8 and over and Southern Girls Rock & Roll Camp July 25-30 for high school girls.
  • Got crime scene investigation in your genes? The CSI:MTSU 2016 will be held June 21-24.
  • MTSU athletics offers baseball for ages 6-12, boys’ and girls’ basketball, soccer and volleyball camps for various ages.
  • Young people also can choose from camps focusing on yoga, high school cheerleading, guitar, French, Chinese and Spanish languages and more.
