The staff of Notre Dame Summer Camp have come together with one goal: to give your kids the best possible summer they could have. As Pope Saint John Paul II said, “Playing has become very important today, since it can encourage young people to develop important values such as loyalty, perseverance, friendship, sharing, and solidarity.” This summer, we want to live by this wisdom, and encourage your kids to play. Be it basketball, a water balloon fight, dancing, or any of the other activities we have planned, we will provide your children the nurturing environment to thrive, and have FUN!

Notre Dame Summer Camp runs in two sessions, July 8- July 19, and July 22- August 2, from 8:00am-3:00pm.

We offer aftercare from 3:00pm-5:00pm.
