Saint Francis International School presents three exciting programs for the summer of 2013.
> Lions Basketball Camp is our long-time summer basketball clinic designed to help new and experienced players improve and enjoy the game. The goal of the St. Francis Lions Basketball Camp is to create an enjoyable and enthusiastic environment where each camper can learn the fundamentals of the game of basketball. With an emphasis on the development of individual skills as well as an understanding of team concepts, the St. Francis Lions Basketball Camp is focused on each camper’s development as a player, as well as his or her development as a person and a teammate. -- LEARN MORE
> Camp Wohelo is our summer camp program offered in partnership with Camp Fire USA. The program is designed to meet the needs of families with children in preschool (ages 3 and 4) and in grades K through 8. We offer core camp hours from 9 am to 4 pm daily plus extended camp hours for those families that need extra care for their children.
We have partnered with Camp Fire USA to offer a summer day and resident camp program that combines traditional camp activities with learning and opportunities to develop leadership skills. Each week of camp Camp Wohelo is built around a theme such as “Wild Wonderful World.” Our talented team of teachers and counselors create activities for each day that include arts and crafts, sports, drama, games, and many other opportunities for fun that also have reading, writing, math, science, and social studies built in. All students will also participate in planning a service project that improves our community. Our goal is for children to learn almost without knowing that it’s happening.
Each week also includes a field trip for students in grades 1-8 that is related to that week’s theme. Trips will be include an environmental education center, museums, a planetariums, a wildlife center, and other interesting educational sites. During camp we will also host a number of family events to engage the entire family in the camp program.
Students who participate in Camp Wohelo will not only have many fun experiences but they will grow intellectually and be ready to jumpstart school in the fall. Camp Wohelo is the perfect chance to grow friendships in a relaxed camp setting. We will also focus on challenging students to be leaders in many of the activities and routines of the camp.
If you are looking for a place for your child not only to have fun this summer but to learn and grow then you need look no further than Summer @ Saint Francis.
