MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (April 5, 2016) — This summer, high school students can become a “buff” in photography, nursing, musical theatre, basketball, filmmaking and more at Milligan College’s “Be a Buff Summer Camps” in July.

Students will have the opportunity to stay on Milligan’s beautiful campus, enhance their skills, learn new techniques in their field of interest and meet other college-bound students in a supportive, Christian environment. The camp runs from July 17-22.

“‘Be a Buff Summer Camps’ offer teens a wonderful opportunity to learn from experienced Milligan faculty and coaches in the areas of digital media, nursing, musical theatre and varsity basketball this summer,” said Phyllis Fox, director of summer camps and church relations. “Students can improve their skills and gifts while experiencing what it’s like to live on a college campus with counselors who are current Milligan students, respected by their peers and faculty.”

At the basketball camp, high school varsity men and women will learn what it takes to get to play at the collegiate level with Bill Robinson, head coach of the men’s basketball team. The camp will develop individual and team skills, as well as provide film study and friendly competition.

Students in the digital media camp will gain hands-on experience in the foundational elements of digital media, including digital photography, digital video filmmaking and graphic design. This program is perfect for the beginner to intermediate skill-level students as a wonderful opportunity to use their creativity to enhance their eye for beauty as they develop skills in each aspect of digital media.

By the end of the week, students will be able to exhibit their work to show friends and family what they have learned in the digital media camp.

Students in the musical theatre camp will learn from Milligan’s knowledgeable music and theatre professionals how to combine singing, acting and dancing into a live musical revue—in one week. Friends and family of the students are invited to the musical performance on Friday, July 22, at 6 p.m. in Milligan’s McGlothlin-Street Theatre located in the Gregory Center.

In the nursing camp, students will be able to learn from Milligan’s experienced nursing faculty, develop hands-on skills used by registered nurses every day and discover why Milligan nurses are highly recruited by employers. On top of that, students will earn their CPR certification, tour area health care agencies and learn how to assess vital signs, start IVs, give injections and more.
