CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Campbellsville University will serve as host to over 6,000 campers this summer, including eight Centri-Kid camps. Other camps include: choirs and orchestras, various sports camps, LINC orientation and more.

Centri-Kid camps, a ministry of Lifeway Christian Resources, were the largest with 750 participants at a time.
“We love having these groups on our campus during the summer, because here at CU we view our summer camp program as a great recruiting tool,” Rusty Watkins, CU coordinator of summer camps and conferences, said.

“But the most important reason we do summer camps is to see life change in the lives of young people.”
Camp participants come from 16-18 different states.

Campbellsville University is a widely acclaimed Kentucky-based Christian university with more than 3,500 students offering 63 undergraduate options, 17 master’s degrees, five postgraduate areas and eight pre-professional programs. The website for complete information is campbellsville.edu.
