Summer camp season is on the horizon and, fortunately for parents, Methodist University is still accepting registrants for many of its academic and athletic camps.

From STEM to leadership to volleyball to tennis, Methodist University is hosting 11 different types of summer camps on its sprawling 600-acre campus this year. Each of the University’s camps offer children and teens the chance to dive into a subject they are interested in while learning from some of MU’s top faculty, staff, and coaches.

“Summer camps at MU are a great way for the University to connect to the community through various academic, leadership, and athletic camps,” said Dr. Denise Bauer, chair and professor of Engineering at Methodist University, who is directing the STEM Camp. “Participants can learn something new, expand their knowledge, or hone their skills – all while having fun. The camps are equally enjoyable for the instructors as we feed off the excitement of the campers. MU summer camps are always a great time for everyone involved.”

Registration is now closed for Methodist University’s General Shelton Leadership Camp (June 11-16), but there are still a variety of camps available this summer:

STEM Camp (June 5-9)

The specific areas covered in STEM Camp include Microbiology, Engineering, Mathematics, Forensic Science, Health Science, Biology, Chemistry, Nursing, and more. Each camper will receive a STEM Camp t-shirt and daily snacks will be provided along with an end-of-camp pizza party. Campers are selected on a first-come, first-served basis with only 30 campers being accepted.
