Can your team complete the relay race, work together at the ropes course, and cheer one another on? There’s only one way to find out!

Session 2 June 26-30: Wild Wild West
Hit the dusty trails as we search for gold, toss a lasso, herd cows, tye dye bandanas, and participate in camp’s first Dutch Auction. You’ll see what it was like to live in the Wild West days and challenge yourself to team and individual challenges. Brush off your boots and saddle up- this week, you’re the new sheriff in town.

Session 3 July 3-7: 4th of July Week
What better way to celebrate the 4th of July other than at summer camp? We will spend the week playing traditional American games, tye dying red-white-blue shirts, parading around camp and more! You do not want to miss out on this fun and exciting week.

All Sports Camps

St. Paul’s Summer Camp’s All Sports Program will be offered each week for campers ages 6 – 13. The goal of the All Sports Program will be to encourage athletic activity, expose campers to a variety of sports/games, and most of all to have fun. Each day counselors will utilize the incredible athletic facilities at St. Paul’s to organize a variety of sports/games which will include, but not be limited to: basketball, baseball, street hockey, kickball, soccer, flag football, lacrosse, capture the flag, dodgeball, kick the can, manhunt, bowling, swimming, and whatever other games campers might suggest. Campers will have the opportunity to swim every day! Campers will be grouped by age and ability, and they will often be given a choice of two or three games that they would like to play. Most critics agree that the overly structured and ultra-competitive nature of youth sports today leads to boys and girls not willing to try new things, feeling burnt out of sports they once loved, and not having fun. Sign your child up for the All Sports Program this summer and bring the fun back to sports!
