A science camp for high school students is the latest addition to the University of Lynchburg’s 2022 summer camps. The program runs from July 24 to 30. As in years past, the University is also offering Debate and Public Speaking to local middle and high school students, as well as several athletics options.

Summer Scholars Program: Health Sciences is a weeklong college prep course for rising 9th- through 12th grade students interested in pre-health fields. With day and residential options, this immersive camp will give students the opportunity to explore various health sciences — and get a glimpse of student activities, events, and campus life.

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

The cost for Summer Scholars is $850 for residential campers or $425 for day campers. Lunch is included. For more information, contact Nicole Cone, associate director of admissions and event coordinator, at 434.544.8390 or

Participants in 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 with certified instruction and coaching by the University’s award-winning collegiate team. They’ll learn key presentation and critical thinking skills, which will help them become more outspoken students in the classroom and beyond.

“This camp offers students 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 at Lynchburg.

This is the fifth year 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 weeklong camp is $250, and those who register by May 15 will receive a free T-shirt. Lunch is included. For more information, contact Youra at 434.544.8178 or

University of Lynchburg sports camps include women’s soccer and basketball and men’s basketball and lacrosse, with day, weekend, and weeklong sessions running from April through August.

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