The THEATER Experience (canceled)

Program runs from  July 13 – July 17 

The theater department at Pope Francis Prep is excited to educate and support the next generation of excellence in young performers by offering a Theater Experience.  Under the direction of Mr. John Anziano, Performing Arts Director at Pope Francis Prep, this camp will focus on basic theater training and students will learn basic acting skills, set design, costumes, lighting, sound design and prop design. Students will gain a greater appreciation of live theater and the arts in general by promoting valuable life lessons such as confidence, collaboration, and communication skills. The week will conclude with a short performance by the participants on Friday, July 17 at 1 pm. Participants should bring their own lunch. Refrigeration will be provided.


The STEM Experience (canceled)

Program runs from  July 20 – July 24

An exciting and hands-on learning opportunity for children to investigate the world around them. The STEM Experience encourages collaborative problem-solving, creativity and critical thinking through the use of large and small loose parts, age-appropriate technology, various materials, and life science observations. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with chemical reactions, explore architecture using unconventional building materials, and observe nature up close and personal. If your child loves to create, build, or experiment this experience is for them!


Study Skills Program (canceled)

Program runs from  July 27 – July 31

This program will focus on helping students gain tools and knowledge to increase their academic success. Students will discover their personal learning style and will learn how to use this knowledge to make studying more effective and efficient. Note-taking, organizational skills, and study hints and tips will also be taught. A great way to bridge that summer gap in learning!
