There will be plenty of fresh fare on the menu when the curtain lifts on the 2021 edition of St. Michael's College School's (SMCS) Summer Camp experience this July.
"We looked at the interests expressed by our students and other young people during the past year and sought to build out programmes that reflected these interests," says Stephen Antolin '05, SMCS Camps Director, referring to a host of new themes.
Among the more than one dozen programming options are a handful that will be making their debut this year, including: Digital Photography, Graphic Design, and Backyard Habitat.
"Our priority continues to be on offering engaging programming that provides young people with the opportunity to connect and challenge themselves while learning and having fun," says Antolin, who also teaches Core Intermediate English at SMCS.
This year's camp experience will be presented exclusively online. As in previous years, SMCS Summer Camps are open to both boys and girls aged 10 years and up, and include themes spanning arts, academics, athletics, and activities. Weekly rates start at $100 per session.
"All our programmes are led by certified teachers who are experts in their given field," adds Antolin. "This ensures that your child's social-emotional needs will be well cared for, and that their programme will be engaging, challenging, and fun," he says.
"You'd be amazed at the fun we will have. Not only will you learn a new skill or enhance an existing one, you will make new friends that share your interests, all from the comfort of your own space," says Antolin.
Having also led individual camp sessions in the past, Antolin says the impact of a summer camp experience for both participants and instructors can yield a host of positives for everyone involved.
"Their energy, when combined with the creativity and efforts of our staff, really result in some incredible learning experiences and unforgettable moments," he says.
SMCS Summer Camps begin July 12, 2021.
