Athletic Summer Camps


ATHLETIC SUMMER CAMPS

Notre Dame Preparatory School and Marist Academy's youth summer camps will soon be here on campus. And this year, Notre Dame's summer program is bigger and more diverse than ever before and parent/student interest is expected to be high. So it's time now to sign up to ensure your children get a spot in the camp of their choice.

As one of the area's most recognized programs, ND's summer camps curriculum provides safe, fun, and skill-focused experiences for kids entering grades kindergarten through 12. This year's lineup includes a wider variety of both athletic and academic camps. The program includes athletic camps in volleyball, soccer, football, basketball and tennis. Academic camps include sessions in art, college essay writing, math, debate and theatre. Camps range from two to five-and-a-half hours per day and offer instruction for all skill levels, from introductory to advanced. All camps are run by NDP faculty members or NDP coaches.

Notre Dame has been providing quality and fun-filled summer-camp experiences for more than 10 years and maintains a proven safety track record. Under the expert care of our camp coaches, kids not only learn individual, sport-oriented or creative skills, but also develop personally and socially, learning teamwork and building life skills through interaction with fellow campers.

Register now! Great camps get cancelled because too many parents wait until the last minute to register. Keep in mind our new cancellation policy – A fee of 50% of the camp cost will be assessed for any cancellations. No paper registrations accepted.
