HSU prepares for Super Summer camp

June 3, 2019 Ashlyn Schulle, Staff Writer

(ABILENE, Texas)–Super Summer is a popular camp that HSU hosts each summer. The camp is intended to teach students to “know and share the gospel” as they spend a week on campus participating in “focused gospel training” along with fun recreational activities.

Super Summer started in 1974 as an opportunity for young Christians to learn how to share Christ with those around them. In the beginning it was run by churches in Texas and held in church buildings in the Dallas area. Students stayed in the homes of church members and were driven to their respective buildings each day for the training and activities, and in the evenings everyone came together for a worship service.

The camp eventually evolved into being hosted on the campuses of various Texas Baptist universities like Baylor University, University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, and Hardin-Simmons University.

This year, HSU is hosting two sessions of Super Summer for students going into eighth grade through students who have just graduated from high school in the spring of 2019. The first session will take place June 10 through 14.

The second session will be held July 8 through 12. Registration closes two weeks prior to each session, so students interested in participating can still register for the second session until Monday, June 24.

Over the years, Super Summer has trained over 140,000 students to share their faith, build solid relationships, and impact their churches and communities. Hardin-Simmons University is proud to be one of the universities to host Super Summer annually, and we are looking forward to the liveliness that the students always bring to our campus.
