Spring classes are over, grades are turned in and campus is quieting down awaiting the return of students in the fall. While this may be the most common view of what Baylor is like over the summer, campus is alive with summer camps for all ages.

From sports to music, middle school children and younger have the opportunity grow through overnight and day camps at Baylor.

Baylor's athletic department offers basketball, baseball, football, tumbling/acrobatics, golf, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball camp sessions.

The music department provides an opportunity for middle school children to develop their abilities through band and orchestra camp.

Teen-age students have even more camp options.

The athletic department will hold more advanced and skill specific sports camps designed for older students, including a cross country program.

The music department will offer more advanced music camps as well as choral, piano and pipe organ programs.

For high school juniors, the Renaissance Scholar Program offered by the honors program and the engineering and computer science department will give students a chance to experience college for one week and earn an hour of credit.

The High School Summer Science Research Program also will allow select high school juniors, in the summer before their senior year, to participate in research on Baylor's campus for college credit.

Adults will also have a chance to participate in summer activities through the music department.

The Summer Organ Institute will provide adults with an educational experience on the pipe organ, while educators have the option of attending a director's workshop.
