STREAMS Summer Camp - Description

STREAMS Summer Camp at De Smet Jesuit High School is a great new way for rising 6th, 7th and 8th grade boys to learn and have fun this summer. This four-week day camp combines learning experiences in the important subjects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) with Resources, Arts and Sports.

There’s something exciting happening every day at STREAMS, including time to make new friends, to travel off campus for field trips in our school’s new transportation shuttles, and to play a variety of sports where the emphasis is more on fun than competition. All classes are taught by De Smet Jesuit faculty, and campers are served lunch every day. Pre- and post-camp activities are included to accommodate drop-offs and pick-ups at our centrally-located campus in Creve Coeur.
