    With nearly 50 camps developed by Forsyth School faculty, Summer Discovery provides kids age 3 through Grade 6 with an age-appropriate mix of structure, freedom, and challenge. 

    Different weekly themes allow kids to become spies, artists, engineers, filmmakers, builders, designers, climbers, scientists, performers, cyclists, photographers, explorers, and more! Summer Discovery is a place to play, try, make, be, and do—on the high ropes or obstacle course, in the lab, on the stage, and on the field.

    Located on Forsyth School’s one-of-a-kind campus featuring a gymnasium, Adventure Center, sport court, sports field, playgrounds, and Big Backyard, Summer Discovery feels like summer in the neighborhood, where kids enjoy childhood “unplugged”—lunch outside, pick-up games, and running through the sprinkler (or down our supersized slip ‘n slide). The “connections” are with friends old and new!

    For students who have completed grades 5 through 9
    Description: Math success is built on the foundation of numbers, but math education doesn’t always build in a concrete understanding of what numbers are and how they work. In this camp, we will explore the ways in which students interpret the meanings of both numbers and mathematical operations, helping them get a feel for what these represent in real terms and not just in the abstract. By linking mathematical operations to concrete operations, we will guide students to identify their own mistakes and analyze what went wrong. Along the way, we will unlock and practice techniques for improving overall facility with memorization and recall. Materials provided.

    Ursuline Academy Summer Sports Camps are designed to provide the student-athletes in our community with a foundation of fundamental skills, knowledge, character and leadership development, plus a love for athletics. Recognizing that while skills and drills are critical to the improvement of an athlete, making the sport FUN is essential to developing the “passion for the game.” With eleven different choices, we hope that athletes take advantage of the wide variety of athletic opportunities and register for multiple sports. This type of cross training not only helps to develop overall athleticism; it keeps sports fresh and exciting.

Every sport has different dates, times, and age group offerings, so read the camp description carefully.  Please click the link for specifics on dates and times for each camp.
