Summer is just around the corner, which means it's time to think about how your student can make the most of those months off from school. We're excited to invite you to register your kids for HSP’s 2023 summer camps, which offer an engaging and enriching experience for all! At Holy Spirit Prep, our summer camps are designed to support the formation of each child by embodying our school’s four pillars: faith, academics, athletics, and arts. They are also a great way to make new friends and create lasting memories.
This year we’re hosting a variety of camps for students from PreK through 12th grade, which will take place in June and July. Whether you’re looking for more information about the all-ages Basketball Camp, the lower school Cheer Camp, or the middle school Reading and Writing Camp, in this blog post you can learn everything you need to know to choose the summer camp that’s best for your student, and register today to reserve a spot! Camp registration is open to the general public.
Please Note: All camp registrations must be submitted by the Friday prior to the start of the week’s camp. Spots are limited, so we recommend registering early to ensure your children don’t miss out on camp fun!
