Five Days of Splashing, Climbing, Kicking, Moving Great Opportunity for Kids

MURFREESBORO–Camp ENRGY, a five-day event for youth with physical disabilities, is slated for July 25-29 at Middle Tennessee State University.
Sponsored by the MTSU Center for Physical Activity and Health in Youth, Camp ENRGY—which stands for Excellence ‘N’ Recreation and Games for Youth—includes strength training, flexibility training, baseball, basketball, yoga, dance, gymnastics, martial arts, golf, football, kayaking, soccer, cycling and geocaching.
“Part of the camp vision has been to collaborate with community partners who are interested in providing opportunities for lifelong activity and decreasing the barriers to participation many of these kids experience,” said Camp Director Sandy Stevens.
Stevens says 21 campers, 12 counselors and several volunteers will take part in this year’s session.
Most activities are scheduled to take place in the MTSU Health, Wellness and Recreation Center. Some activities are slated to take place at other campus venues, including Murphy Center and Alumni Memorial Gymnasium.
