Let’s get ready to RUMBLE!!! Battebots camps will allow students the opportunity to design, build, program, and control their own battlebot and compete in head-to-head competitions.

Bring your game face … winner takes all!

Come join us for an exciting adventure in East Tennessee where we will experience God’s creation up close. God’s word has a lot to say about His creation. As we engage in a variety of activities and challenges together, we will apply Scripture to what we learn about the outdoors and each other. 

Activities will include:

  • High ropes course
  • Caving in a wild cave
  • Rappelling
  • Paddling training/Zip line
  • Duckie trip down the Upper Hiwassee
  • Whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River

We will camp at Camp Lookout in Lookout Mountain, TN, and Gee Creek Campground in Reliance, TN. Campers are responsible for bringing clothes, personal items, and sleeping bag. Campers need to pack a lunch for the first day, and need money for lunch on return trip.

Field Trip Policy

Field trips provide an excellent learning opportunity to see real life applications. They are an integral part of many of Westminster Academy summer camps.

By registering for the camp, parents are giving permission for the child to ride in school-provided transportation. This also authorizes medical treatment to be given to the student in case of injury.

All students must comply with the July 1, 2004 Tennessee Child Restraint Law when attending a field trip. For all ages a seat belt is required for every passenger.

The behavioral standards that apply to campers on campus also apply to participants in field trips.

In Annie, Jr. Camp, we will learn the basics of stage movement, choreography, and group singing with the classic tale of an orphan who finds where she truly belongs. There are roles big and small to give campers of all level of theater experience a chance to hone their skills. Campers will also work on creating set pieces and props. Bring a lunch each day. Rising 2nd-9th graders welcome.

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

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 our math and science departments. 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.

These grade-specific camps are tailored to prepare incoming and returning students for the coming year in math. With the emphasis on the foundational skills of fractions, decimals, and percents, teachers will engage students with hands-on activities and real-life applications. Each day will include a mid-morning break, so pack a snack. 

Attendance at the camp replaces the requirement to complete the math packet which is assigned to all students.

Students who sign up for both academic camps (math & writing) will receive a 20% discount.

Rising 9th-12th graders: 4:30-7:30

Rising 6th-8th graders: 1:00-4:00

Join us for a week of hands-on clay fun! Alongside learning the basics of sculpture, campers will be working on several projects to take home at the end of week.
