athletics_GCGEORGETOWN, Ky. – Summer camps and programs make for a lot of activity on the Georgetown College campus.

The National Dance Alliance Camp, now in its second year at GC, has completed several days of practice for young dancers in a wide variety of styles and techniques. There have been 50 participants from Madisonville North Hopkins, Tates Creek and Scott County schools in Kentucky.

Trilogy Lacrosse Camp brought to Georgetown 120 young campers from Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia and Canada. They have taken up residence at the college’s athletic complex and engage in daily practices at Toyota Stadium/iHigh Field.

One of the largest and best-known of its kind in the southeastern United States, the Tiger basketball team camp has attracted over one thousand young athletes and coaches from schools throughout Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia. Led by Tiger basketball coach Chris Briggs and his assistant coaches, the Tiger camp utilizes facilities on the Georgetown College campus as well as gymnasiums throughout Scott County.

Coming up soon will be the three-week Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs (GSE), managed by Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation, and Georgetown College’s own two-week Pre-College Academic Experience in Math and Science (PAEMS), among others.

GSE gives Kentucky high school students, working in teams, a hands-on opportunity to invent a product and create a business model for it. PAEMS is a residential learning experience for highly-motivated high school students. The camp mixes class and laboratory experiences with field trips to promote enthusiasm for the sciences.

The Georgetown College Office of Summer Programs and Camps coordinates all summer activities. A complete listing is available online.
