Tusculum University Camps

Whether your kid is an aspiring actor, budding musical talent, or ball of energy ready to run and play all summer, Tusculum University has a camp for you!

Tusculum University Camps offers and hosts dozens of academic, recreational, arts and sports programs to entertain and educate kids of all ages. These camps give students opportunities to learn directly from Tusculum faculty, staff, students, coaches and athletes. All camp programs are designed to provide participants with an active and experiential learning experience that enables them to continue to develop and become the best versions of themselves.

We offer day camps and overnight camps that can last several days. Housing for overnight and extended time camps is available in Tusculum residence halls, and campers are supervised by trained staff members. Many camps will have meals in the Tusculum cafeteria, which provides a wide variety of nutricious food choices. For recreation, Tusculum has several indoor and outdoor basketball courts, beach volleyball courts, an indoor turf facility, and a student lounge with table tennis, air hockey and a pool table.

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.
