UT Martin has teamed up with the Chickasaw and West TN Area Councils, Boy Scouts of America, to offer college credit for scouts completing certain programs at Kia Kima Scout Reservation and Camp Mack Morris. Summer camp experiences provide physical and intellectual activities that incorporate many elements of healthy youth development and characterize students who excel in college. Former scouts credit Scouting with helping them gain self-confidence and leadership skills, and improving academic and career success.
First course: $60 (includes UT Martin admission fee)
Additional courses: $30 each
All credit is awarded as proficiency credit in collaboration with UT Martin's Department of Health and Human Performance.
Scouts earning summer camp credit also are eligible for up to 4 UTM Dual Enrollment courses online at no cost during fall and spring semesters. These courses can be integrated into a regular high school curriculum, shorten the time to a college degree, and reduce college debt.
