LWC A Popular Place for Summer Campus, Conferencese

Posted on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 [12:27 PM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College had a light schedule of classes this summer, but that has not meant its A.P. White Campus has been a place of inactivity.

The campus has been the site of numerous camps, conferences and meetings throughout the summer, adding to Columbia-Adair County's tourism bottom line.

A total of 19 summer camps were scheduled for this summer at LWC, meaning that at any given time 400 people are on campus. At times this summer, almost 600 guests have been on campus -- most of whom are from outside Columbia-Adair County.

One of the biggest summer events is EDGE, a one-day orientation program for new LWC students. EDGE -- which stands for education, development, growth and experience -- is a daylong orientation program for incoming freshmen. The day introduces freshmen to the LWC community and gives them several opportunities to meet the college's faculty, staff and students. LWC holds a total of five EDGE days during the summer.

The Kentucky YMCA will was in Columbia-Adair County as part of its Kentucky Leadership Conference. The YMCA event attracted about 300 kids -- from middle school to high school.

Earlier in the summer, the Rodgers Explorers spent several days on the A.P. White Campus. This year a total of 30 rising ninth-graders from the region spent several days on campus where they took classes and learned about leadership.

This summer has also featured plenty of sports-related camps. Basketball camps were held in the Doris and Bob Holloway Health & Wellness Center, a football camp was held at Blue Raider Stadium and soccer camps are being held this week at Walter S. Reuling Stadium.

LWC has also hosted several events for The United Methodist Church. Earlier in the summer, three dozen men and women from the region attended the United Methodist License for Pastoral Ministry School, a program for aspiring ministers. And early this month, several dozen women attended the annual School of Christian Mission for the Women's Division of The United Methodist Church
