Flexible scheduling at DominiCamp fills a need

St. Mary’s Dominican High School has summer fun covered for girls of all ages. Dominican offers four summer programs to meet the specific interests of just about any camper.

The youngest campers – girls who have completed first through fourth grades – can participate in Jumpin’ For Joy, which offers activities such as arts and crafts, cheerleading, games, “Bibleosity,” word games, music and dance. The camp will be held June 4-22, and the camp day runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Older campers – those who have completed fourth through eighth grades – have even more options.

All-around action

First, there is DominiCamp, which provides a wide range of activities such as jewelry-making, fun with Spanish, creative writing, dance, Math Mania, drama, sports, fitness, sciences, etiquette, arts and crafts, leadership development, computers and cooking. DominiCamp will run June 4-22, and the camp day will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

“The girls do six different activities in one day, and that allows them to have a lot of opportunities to interact with various activities,” said Meg Womble, DominiCamp director. “The activities are geared to all kinds of talents and interests. We’ve got activities such as a fun science exploration class, arts and crafts, cooking and etiquette.

Lunches are themed for fun

“Every day at lunch we have a daily theme and an activity. It’s not just, ‘Hey, it’s lunch hour; let’s eat.’ They can be playing bingo or doing karaoke or having a costume contest or a Western day where we see who can yodel the loudest.”

The schedule also can be arranged to allow a girl to participate in a sports camp in the morning and a special-interest camp or DominiCamp in the afternoon.

“That’s an even bigger scheduling bonus,” Womble said.

Dominican offers sports camps in softball (June 4-8), basketball (June 11-15), volleyball (June 18-22) and soccer (July 30-Aug. 1). Each sports camp will run from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The older campers also have a chance to participate in specialized camps from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. daily. Those camps include art (June 4-8), band (June 11-15) and drama (June 18-22). There is limited space for the specialized camps.

Before and after care is available.
