Lees-McRae College offers a variety of summer camps for students who seek excitement both in and out of the classroom in a summer climate that is unrivaled. Whether they hit the bike trails or take to the stage, Lees-McRae has a camp for your child in a safe and enriching environment.
Lees-McRae is featuring three academic summer camps for rising 9th-12th grade students, day camps for younger children and athletic camps for students of many ages.
Lees-McRae College will host the Creative and Performing Arts Camp (CAPA) June 23-29 on the campus in Banner Elk. CAPA is a model arts program for rising 9th-12th grade students. Participants in this camp will discover and explore a wide range of arts experiences including, but not limited to acting, costuming, dance, improvisation, make-up, music, performance, script writing and set design and how all of these theatrical elements work together. The camp will culminate in a performance at the end of the week for family, friends and the college community.
Discovering ones creative potential and individual self in relationship to the world in which they live, work, and play is essential to the creative and performing arts experience. The faculty and staff of CAPA greatly value quality education and arts experiences for all youth. The National Standards for Arts Education underpin the camp curriculum.
Offered June 24-29, the Outdoor Adventure and Nature Camp is designed for rising 9th-12th grade students who have an interest in learning and exploring the outdoor environment. Participants will have the opportunity to study in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina, a natural setting for hiking, backpacking, camping, swimming and ziplining.
The camp will provide participants with insight into wildlife rehabilitation at the Blue Ridge Wildlife Institute and field biology at the Elk Valley Preserve and Field Station, both located on the campus of Lees-McRae College.
