Camp Philosophy

The Saint Francis Sports and Activity Camp has been structured to provide each youngster with a variety of learning experiences. Our goal is to give group and individual instruction in a number of sports, while also teaching teamwork and good sportsmanship . The staff of the Sports and Activity Camp will work diligently to provide an active learning environment, while also emphasizing the positive development of each youngster’s self-esteem.

Staff

The staff of the Saint Francis Sports and Activity Camp will consist of Saint Francis High School faculty, area college athletes, and Saint Francis High School students. All sports instruction will be given by Saint Francis faculty members or qualified college athletes.

Lunch

Lunch is provided each day for the entire camp. If you prefer to pack a lunch for your child, you may do so.

Equipment

Every day of camp bring in a back-pack: a hat, suntan lotion, water bottle, swimsuit and towel (plastic bag for wet clothes). All campers report to Raskob Gym (main gym) for check-in. You may drop off your child in front of the gym as early as 8:30 am, but no earlier as there will be no camp supervision prior to that time. This is where you may also pick up your child. Pick up is at 2:30 pm every day. If your child misplaces or loses equipment/clothes, please look in the lost and found located at the registration table.  Please do not bring any valuables, as we are not responsible for lost or stolen items. It is helpful to label all of your items. 

Note: Due to the new gym construction the camp will not be providing lockers this year 

 

Swimming

All swim activities will be taught by qualified instructors, and supervised by lifeguards and camp staff.
