Session 1 – June 14-18: Get Ready, Get Set, It’s Summertime!

Sizzle into summertime with St. John’s Summer Camp. How do you like to spend a hot day? Run through the sprinkler, lick a popsicle, sit in the shade? Campers will do all of these fun summertime activities and more as they try to stay cool.


Session 2 – June 21-25: Under the Sea

Climb aboard the SJPDS Camp submarine to see all the sea creatures as they swim by. Look at the jellyfish with all of its tentacles, the sea turtle as she stretches her neck, and the beautiful starfish. Does a starfish have eyes? How long can a sea turtle hold her breath? Does a jellyfish have a brain? We will find out the answers to these questions and many more as we take our ocean adventure. 


Session 3 – June 28-July 2: USA! USA! USA!

Campers will have a blast celebrating the 4th of July at St. John’s. We can’t wait to see your best red, white, and blue outfits!  In addition to all the fun, we will learn more about the history of this holiday and what it means to be an American today.  This week is sure to be a blast!


Session 4 – July 5-9: The Curious World of George

What has that monkey gotten into now? George and his friend, the man with the yellow hat, take us on all kinds of adventures, from learning our ABC's to counting to 10.  If you are curious and like adventure, join us at camp this week!


Session 5 – July 12-16: Are We There Yet?

Let’s hit the road to fun with all sorts of transportation! We are taking a trip this week, but how will we get there? Let’s visit a travel agency to find out.  We will travel on road, in water, on tracks, and even in the air.  It sounds like a passport will be needed!


Session 6 – July 19-23: A Camping We Will Go!

Pitch your tent, grab your fishing pole, and join us by the campfire as we discover all the fun to be had while camping.  We’ll explore nature, go on a hike around campus, and learn that marshmallows aren’t just for eating.  Don’t forget to bring your binoculars!


Session 7 – July 26-30: What’s in the Woods?

Join us this week for a woodland adventure! We will learn about the forest ecosystem - what it is and the animals and plants that live there.  We will explore woodlands through a variety of classroom and outdoor activities. Campers will earn badges throughout this week and will become Junior Forest Rangers.


Session 8 – Aug 2-6: Super Powers Activate!

If you could have any superpower what would it be?  Do you want to soar over tall buildings, have x-ray vision, or smash through barriers? This week campers transform into superheroes, trying out all kinds of superpowers.  Whether it’s LadyBug Girl or Wonder Woman, Captain America or Batman, our superheroes will conquer all obstacles and save St. John’s Camp!


Session 9 – Aug 9-13: What Are Kevin Henkes mice up to now?

Join St. John’s Camp this week as we get to know Owen, Lilly, and Chrysanthemum a little better.  Each of these beloved characters has something special. Chrysanthemum has a special name all her own, Owen carries around a special blanket, and Lily has a special purse. What do you have that is so special to you?  Campers will look at how special each of their names are as well as what they hold dear to them, just to name a few activities.


Session 10 – Aug 16-20: Dino ROAR!

Have you ever wondered how big the dinosaurs really were?  Come find out!  This week we will put on our paleontologist hats and learn all about the prehistoric reptiles from the ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex to the enormous Diplodocus.
