Summer Camp

The format has changed this year!

Our St. Mary Summer Camp program consists of two theme camps which are three weeks long!

Each day is jam-packed with camp classes and activities. Although each week is planned with camp classes and activities, students may choose a one-week-long elective class during the “Campers Corral” hour each week!

Some of the “Campers Corral” elective classes include: Kitchen Science, Gizmos and Gadgets, Lego Engineering, Gardening, Get Up and Move, and French-with-a-Twist just to name a few. Best of all, each week is individually designed so each camper can pick and choose what weeks they want to attend or attend them all! Everyone is welcome!

Our Kinder Camp is designed for children starting Kindergarten in the fall. Kinder-Camp provides an enriching environment in the Kindergarten classroom thus giving children a head-start for the fall.

Extension is still available to students enrolled in the Summer Camp. Please look over the details of each camp and know that we are thrilled to welcome everyone to this year’s St. Mary Summer Camp.

DaVinci STEAM Camp

This camp is divided by age groups: 1st and 2nd grades; 3rd and 4th grades; 5th and 6th grades.

When we think of Leonardo DaVinci, we think of the painting Mona Lisa, but did you know that DaVinci was an inventor, scientist, and engineer?

This three-week camp is full of activities that include everything DaVinci loved. Each week of the camp has a special theme and camp classes are created to enhance the theme.

The curriculum and fun-filled camp are divided into 3 individual weeks to include science, technology, engineering, art, and math:

Week 1: June 8 – June 12 Mona Lisa Math Week

Week 2: June 15 – June 19 Renaissance Week

Week 3: June 22 – June 26 Invention/Engineering Week

If DaVinci were alive today – he’d register for this camp! Come and join us for this great camp!
