Catholic School Summer Camps

In summertime, many parents enroll their children in local programs or send them to summer camp to help kids avoid boredom while having fun and keeping their brains engaged. 

Once they are teenagers, they get summer jobs, which allows them to gain independence, earn money, and develop new skills. 

Fortunately, local Catholic schools offer a variety of summer programs.
