Academic Summer Camps

Each summer, Chaminade High School offers students the opportunity to explore subjects of interest through Academic Camps.  These camps are designed to foster the interest of young people with real-life applications in a fun, thought-provoking atmosphere.


For the summer 2021 Chaminade is offering half—day, multi-week programs for students entering 7th-9th grade. Campers can participate in the Bloomberg Business, History, Speech and Debate, Video Production, Podcasting Camp, Science, and our Musical Theatre Camps.

 

Members of the Chaminade faculty serve as camp instructors.  Their teaching experience, together with the use of Chaminade facilities like The Dolan Family Science, Technology, and Research Center and Bloomberg Business Center, help young people keep their minds moving during the summer months.

2021 Academic Summer Camps

“Science Camp is a place where I was able to let my love for science run free.”

"The Video Production Camp was a great experience for me. It allowed me to get a sense for the school building before attending Chaminade, enabled me to feel more confident in the school’s film club, and also helped me make friends before attending the school. The high-tech equipment that we were given greatly enhanced the experience as well. I was able to get an experience I could not have gotten anywhere else, and I am extremely grateful that I was able to have attended the camp."

“History Camp was one of my best experiences.  If you are looking at camps for the summer, I would definitely recommend them.  You will not be disappointed.”

"Before we entered Chaminade as freshmen, an online Debate Summer Camp was offered to everyone.  I was very intrigued and wanted to try it out, so I did.  This was one of the best decisions I have made throughout Chaminade, because it was very helpful in starting off debate for me.  I learned so many things that helped me to excel once actual debate started.  I learned a strong basis that helped me to succeed in the tournaments.  Also, after doing the online summer program, I was able to start debating early in the school year.  All of this helped me to do well in the regular debate season, and I would recommend doing it.
