Nursing students at McMillan Lab in Lynchburg

A science camp for high school students is the latest addition to Lynchburg University’s 2022 summer camps. The program runs from July 24-30. As in the past, the University also offers debates and public speaking for local middle and high school students, as well as several athletics options.

Summer Scholarship Program: Health Sciences is a one-week college preparation course for students in grades 9-12 who are interested in pre-health fields. With day and residential options, this immersive camp will give students the opportunity to explore a variety of health sciences – and gain insight into student activities, events, and campus life.

Participants will learn how to care for trauma patients, body composition and fitness assessments, international health and medical ethics, the cardiovascular system, first aid and CPR training, laboratory skills, sports training, vital signs and clinical care, and patient simulation lab.

The cost for summer scholarship holders is $850 for residential campers or $425 for day campers. Lunch is included. For more information, contact Nicole Cone, Associate Director of Admissions and Events Coordinator, at 434.544.8390 or

Participants in the Debate and Public Speaking, which runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 6-10, will hone their public speaking and analytical skills through instruction and a coaching certified by the University’s award-winning collegiate team. They will learn key presentation and critical thinking skills, which will help them become more outspoken students in the classroom and beyond.

“This camp equips students with the skills to become confident presenters and gives them the ability to present themselves – and their ideas – in any public situation,” said Dr. Paula Youra, professor of communication studies and speech and debate coach in Lynchburg.

This is the fifth year that debate and public speaking will be offered to middle and high school students. Mornings are spent in the classroom, auditorium, and computer lab, with afternoon practice outdoors.

The cost for the week-long camp is $250 and those who register before May 15 will receive a free t-shirt. Lunch is included. For more information, contact Youra at 434.544.8178 or

Sports camps at Lynchburg University include women’s soccer and basketball and men’s basketball and lacrosse, with one-day, weekend, and week-long sessions in April to August.

Space for all camps is limited. To register, visit the Summer Camps website. All camps are following the University’s COVID-19 protocols.
