Summer Camp for Rising 6th-12th Graders

This camp is limited to campers who are in the rising 9th grade and BELOW.

Come and celebrate your un-birthday with the Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts, and the rest of the insane and inane crew. This classic musical follows Alice as she falls down the rabbit hole and encounters all types of strange and fantastical creatures. Beginners are welcome as we learn the basics of stage movement, choreography, and group singing. Be sure to pack a lunch.

Our two-week musical intensive will culminate in a show for family and friends. Join us on July 24 at 2:00 p.m.

Rising 9th-12th graders: 8:30-11:30

Rising 6th-8th graders: 12:00-3:00

Campers will strengthen the fundamentals of volleyball (bumping, setting, spiking, and serving) and put it into practice with scrimmages. Emphasis will be put on playing as a team and group communication.  All Westminster Academy coaches are professing believers and are in training to be transformational coaches: who use their “coach-power” to nurture and transform players, who are “dedicated to self-understanding and empathy, viewing sports as a virtuous and virtue-giving discipline” (InSideOut Coaching). Daily devotions will focus on practicing and exercising faith, drawing from the many scriptures that make analogy to athletics.

Don’t have time to travel the world this summer? Join us as we explore printmaking, a foundational art technique used in many cultures. We’ll see how fishermen in Japan used gyotaku as part of their businesses. In sub-Saharan Africa, printmaking is used to create mosaic textiles. Dutch artists like Albrecht Durer and Rembrandt used etching as a tool of mass communication, especially to spread the gospel. Campers will explore various print techniques to create their own works of art to bring home. Devotions for the week will center on the printed images of the gospel from classic artists.

Westminster Academy students have the highest combined ACT scores of any co-ed school in the Memphis area. Part of that success is due to the ACT prep training of Maylon Jones (algebra and calculus teacher) and Mary Read (life science and biology teacher). This team of experts has mined the ACT for its secrets, patterns, and tricks; they are ready to help students discover the best strategies for tackling the test. On the last day of camp, students will take a full practice test and will receive it back graded with individualized materials for further study.

Rising 6th-8th graders: 10:00-12:30

Campers will hone the basics of their golf game (putting, chipping, golf etiquette). Campers will have the opportunity to not only meet our coaches and experience our rising golf program, they will also get to practice outside, off-site, and use the school’s new golf simulator, where campers can golf at the top courses in the world.  All Westminster Academy coaches are professing believers and are in training to be transformational coaches: who use their “coach-power” to nurture and transform players, who are “dedicated to self-understanding and empathy, viewing sports as a virtuous and virtue-giving discipline” (InSideOut Coaching).

Bring your game face … winner takes all!
