Whether your child is a budding writer, a future esports mogul, an aspiring actor, or a hands-on artisan, our camps provide an active and experiential learning experience that empowers them to develop and become the best versions of themselves. This summer, we’re excited to offer the Creative Writing Workshop, Pioneer Skills Camp, eSports and the Business of Video Games, Tusculum Theatre Camp, and Historic Woodworking Camp.

JT Burton Team Camp is one of the best summer camps in Tennessee for high school and middle school teams to come to. They are interactive, have attention to detail and make the environment feel elite. It is the most organized team camp on a college campus that I have ever been to! Players and coaches always leave happy and fulfilled with the experience.

Campers engage in learning not just through instruction by camp leaders but through hands-on experience applying this knowledge, often outside a classroom. They learn by doing.

By participating in our camps, attendees expand their knowledge, develop friendships and learn to work in teams. The lessons learned during their experience will benefit them as they continue their education and development of their social and critical thinking skills.
