Camp is the cornerstone of SUMMA Student Theological Debate Society, which provides a way for high school students to build their faith through intellectual channels. Founded in the confidence that knowledge and reason are foundational to faith, SUMMA offers fun, friendship, and the opportunity for a deepened and more thoughtful faith.

Held on the campus of the School of Theology at the University of the South—one of the most beautiful college campuses in the United States—SUMMA Camp is a college-like atmosphere with challenging lectures and stimulating seminar discussions.

Camp is open to high school students entering grades 9-12 in the fall of 2018, and offers a rich, uniquely meaningful experience, which includes:

  • Tools for thinking;
  • Knowledge of the Christian theological tradition;
  • Skills in public speaking and debate;
  • Cutting-edge engagement with topics such as religion and science, social ethics, and interfaith relations.

Camp is not all work, though! Laughter is resonant in the classrooms and dorms, and there is plenty of time for soccer, basketball, games, movies, and even bowling. Each day begins and ends with prayer and contemplative reflection. “Speaking truth in love” is a practice followed throughout camp.

Our next camp session will be July 17–25, 2018Applications are open through June 1, 2018. Please apply soon to avoid being placed on the waitlist. In the meantime, please read more about SUMMAcheck out our Facebook pagelook through our photos, and watch our videos
