Camps Make Summer Fun at WTAMU
CANYON, Texas—Sports, horses, music, leadership and speech are just a few of the many offerings available at West Texas A&M University during its 2009 summer camp schedule.
Thousands of campers will be on the WTAMU campus to participate in more than 30 different summer camping opportunities. Day and residential camps for children of all ages begin in late May and continue through early August.
“Our summer camps give the young campers an opportunity to become acquainted with the University and the campus while having a fun, educational experience,” Roxie Pranglin, interim director of WTAMU’s Office of Continuing Education, said.
The camp schedule kicks off May 31-June 4 with a girls basketball camp and May 31-June 5 with a Chamber Music Camp. Sporting camps continue throughout the summer for sports-minded kids with everything from football and softball to soccer and volleyball. Three different cheer camps are even scheduled. And for those interested in music, the University will offer the state’s only two-week band camp July 12-24.
Horse lovers will have fun learning the skills and techniques of horsemanship at the University’s various Horsemanship Camps scheduled during June. And high school students interested in health careers can sign up for MASH Camp. The camp runs in three sessions during June and offers a variety of health-related activities.
WTAMU also is offering an Engineering Summer Camp June 7-12 for students 14 and older who are interested in engineering studies. Other summer camps include the annual Guy P. Yates Speech Camp June 21-July 3, and a TCFA Youth Career and Leadership Camp June 29-July 1.
