Event description


Summer sports camps are exciting opportunities for youth to interact with high school coaches and players. Learn about the St. James community and experience our team spirit while participating in activities during the break from school. Also visit our web site for information about Enrichment Camps for such topics as academic organizational skills, practicing math, creative writing workshops, etc., also offered on the SJA campus during the summer. Each camp fee is $80 unless otherwise specified. All camps held at SJA unless otherwise noted. Each camp has a minimum number of participants required so we reserve the right to cancel a camp if there are an inadequate number of registrants. See the event tickets for details. Please contact Anna Bomhoff at abomhoff@sjakeepingfaith.org with any questions.

*Age requirements are for the Fall, 2018 grade which the student is entering.
