Mid-South Youth Camp

Housing is available at Mid-South Youth Camp. Cost is $10 per night or $50 for the week. All those staying must abide by the camp rules and regulations. If you are staying at MSYC you will need to provide your own linens, towels, etc. Contact Larry Cyr at  800-348-3481 ext. 6413, 731-989-6413, or lcyr@fhu.edu.

On-Campus Housing (dorms)

University on-campus housing may be available in some of the residence halls. These accommodations are VERY LIMITED with our current student enrollment. Men will be housed in men’s housing and women in women’s housing. Cost is $25 per night for a single room or $15 per night for a shared room. All those staying must abide by all university policies. If you are staying in our university on-campus housing you will need to provide your own linens (mattresses are extra long), towels and toiletries. For further information please contact Kristi Burleson at 731-608-6457 or kburleson@fhu.edu.

Campers/Motor Homes (very limited space; reservations usually made a year in advance)

Spaces for RV (not meant for campers with slide-outs on both sides) and one vehicle available. Space, water, and electrical service cost is $20 per day payable at FHU Business Services Office (in Loyd Aud.) upon arrival. No power cables or hoses are provided by FHU—bring extra of both as some spaces are 100+ feet from service hook-ups. Space reservations cannot be held after first day of Lectureship for late arrivals as we have no way to keep vehicles out of reserved spaces if the RV’s are not in them by the beginning of the event. Call FHU Facilities at 731-989-6051 for reservations in advance.
