FHU to Host Summer Camps

APRIL 24, 2013

With summer quickly approaching, in addition to its usual slate of athletic camps, Freed-Hardeman University is making preparations for four summer camps: Mid-South Youth Camp, GO! Camp, QUEST and Horizons. Students are invited to participate in one or more of these camps, which offer service, leadership and creative opportunities.


Mid-South Youth Camp, located on Highway 45 outside of Henderson, offers something for students of all ages. Beginning June 2, MSYC will hold eight weeks of camp and five weeks of junior camp. The daily schedule consists of classes, devotionals, sports and nightly activities, including a hike and talent show; campers have the opportunity to grow closer to God and each other throughout the week. Those interested my contact Frank Bradford at 989-6987 or visit http://www.fhu.edu/msyc for more information.

FHU’s GO! Camp, an event that moves teenagers into acts of meaningful service, is scheduled for June 2-7. Aimed at students from grades 7 to 12, GO! camp strives to “Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world.” GO! campers will participate in sessions and labs, and work together to serve others. Interested persons should contact Brad Montague, the director of GO!, at 989-6023 or visit http://www.fhu.edu/go for more information.

High school students with a passion for knowledge are encouraged to attend QUEST, which stands for “Question. Understand. Explore. Solve. Think.” The academic camp will be held on FHU’s campus June 16-21. The theme for QUEST is “Comi-Conquest,” and the camp will be separated into two disciplines, fine arts and science. One may contact Dr. Barbara England at 989-6089 or visit http://www.fhu.edu/quest for more information.

Horizons, FHU’s annual Christian leadership camp, will be July 7-12. In honor of its 33rd year, the theme for this year’s Horizons is “33: My Life, His Business.” Campers will attend devotionals and classes throughout the week, and participate in games, group discussions and service projects. Horizons is directed by Kirk Brothers and Doug Burleson. For more information, one may visit fhu.edu/horizons.
