Furman University’s own summer camp!

The “SCOPES” program is founded upon the belief that children will thrive in a supportive environment in which they are challenged to think, question, collaborate, play, imagine and explore. SCOPES is an all-day program on the Furman campus for rising grades 1-8, with dates available in June and July.

See more information on SCOPES Summer Camps!

Do you love mock trial? Do you wait with anticipation for the next season to begin and a new case to be released? Are you considering a career in law or interested in learning more about the American judicial system? Do you want to build your skills in public speaking, presentation, and critical analysis?

Then join us for Top Mock, one of the oldest and most prestigious summer programs for high school mock trial. For 18 years, Top Mock has taught advanced trial advocacy skills to some of the nation’s finest mock trial participants.

Top Mock is a highly selective program administered by Furman’s award-winning collegiate Mock Trial team. The program is designed for high school students who have competed in mock trial tournaments (particularly the Empire Tournaments, State Championships, or National Championship). Top Mock participants receive a week of training and instruction from Furman’s experienced mock trial faculty and students.
