Kids can sign up for a sports camp unlike any other this summer.

Tennessee Tech University’s Campus Recreation and Fitness Center will be offering a unique experience for children ages 8 - 12 with a non-traditional, non-competitive sports camp.

The camp will offer nontraditional sports, including ultimate Frisbee, ping pong, 4 square, and dodgeball and the more traditional indoor soccer and racquetball, plus swimming at the end of each day.

“You’ll learn skills and sportsmanship, have fun, play a game you’ve never played before, swim each day and make new friends,” said Suzann Hensley, Fitness Center assistant director.

The camp offers two sessions: Camp 1 is June 28-July 1 (Signup deadline June 21) and Camp 2 is July 19-22 (Signup deadline July 12). The camp day runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Students can sign up for one sport per day, even taking the same sport twice.

Fitness Center members pay $95 per student. All others pay $125. There is a sibling discount of $25 per child. Fees must be paid in full at sign-up.

Pre-registration is required and can be completed in the Fitness Center main office, Room 118, between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday. For more information about what to bring and more camp features, call 372-6212.
