SUMMER CAMPS

YOUTH SUMMER CAMPS

Summer sports camps are exciting opportunities for youth to interact with high school coaches and players.  Learn about the St. James community and experience our team spirit while participating in activities during the break from school.  Each camp fee is $100 unless otherwise specified.  All camps will be held at St. James unless otherwise noted.  Each camp has a minimum number of participants required so we reserve the right to cancel a camp if there are an inadequate number of registrants.  See the event ticket for details.  Register online at www.sjakeepingfaith.org. Please contact Anna Bomhoff at 913-254-4240 or  abomhoff@sjakeepingfaith.org or Tom Radke at tradke@sjakeepingfaith.org with questions.  

*Age requirements are for the Fall, 2024 grade which the student is entering.

*If you have a camp certificate from a parish auction, please contact our Athletics Department for directions on how to sign up.
