[432a] MTSU meshes ‘Summer Experiences’ into new website

MURFREESBORO — So you are 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 felt a central location where people can 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 offering 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 audience (age group the camp targets). 

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

• 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 (ages 6-12), boys’ and girls’ basketball, soccer and volleyball camps for various ages.

Yoga, high school cheerleader, languages (French, Chinese, Spanish), guitar and more.
