The APSU Department of Political Science, the APSU College of Business and the APSU President’s Emerging Leaders Program are hosting the leadership development camp, which runs from June 6-10.

            The camp is designed to meet the interests, capabilities and opportunities of middle-school girls by giving them the self-confidence and skills they need to be successful during this important stage in their lives.

         Campers will participate in a variety of exciting, interactive and hands-on activities (both indoors and outdoors) that focus on problem solving, teamwork and trust. Participants will be challenged mentally, socially and physically in age-appropriate ways using the many resources available at Austin Peay.

        The camp is open to 25 girls who will be in the sixth, seventh or eighth grade in the fall.
