CMU to host more than 12,600 summer camps, conferences visitors

More than 12,600 students and chaperones are slated to visit Central Michigan University this summer for camps and conferences, staying in the residence halls and dining in the residential restaurants.

They come for events such as Leadership Camp, sports camps, Grandparents University, band camps and Special Olympics, which runs May 29 through May 31 and brings 3,800 celebrated guests to campus.

Most of the visits are organized through events and conference services, led by Cal Seelye.

"Each visitor gives each of us an opportunity to advance CMU's reputation," said Sherry Knight, associate vice president of university communications. "These guests  will tell friends, family and neighbors about their experience here. Let's roll out the maroon carpet."

A list of the camps and conferences​ is available online​.
