Camp Innovate is new to The Center in 2015 and is a day camp designed for advanced ability and high interest children who were in grades four or five during the 2014-2015 school year. The experience features hands-on and minds-on instruction to engage children in problem solving and learning at advanced levels. Students will explore a wide range of subjects from math and science to art and theater during their day. Numbers will be limited to 50 children.

Ray Harper Basketball Camps at Western Kentucky University offer an opportunity for players to receive valuable instruction on the fundamental skills of basketball. Campers will be made aware of the characteristics that define successful players. Organized games between campers will provide a competitive outlet after specific drills have been practiced. Contests built into drills capture the learner's attention, which results in attentive practice.
Drill progressions will be aimed towards recognizing and developing good habits in all aspects of the game. General courtesy, respect for teammates and opponents and the importance of hard work will be taught to the campers through example by the Hilltopper coaches.
