Summer Camps

*UPDATE ON CAMPS, AS OF June 25, 2020

Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Volleyball, Lacrosse and Service Camps in July. The health and safety of our campers, students and staff are of utmost priority to us. Based on the necessary precautions that are needed, we do not feel we can offer the quality, hands-on experience that is characteristic of Mercy McAuley’s camps. All who have registered for these camps will receive full refunds. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Our Test Prep Camp for 8th graders is still on as planned in July. We believe we can implement the necessary CDC guidelines and maintain effective social distancing with the format of this camp. Over the coming week, we will be reaching out separately to those who have registered for the Test Prep Camp with more specific camp details, including the safety measures that will be in place.

As we communicated back in May, all June camps, and the STEM Camp, were also canceled.

We look forward to offering a robust array of summer camps in 2021! Please visit our website and follow our social media feeds to stay connected to all things happening at Mercy McAuley. If you have any questions, please contact me at miazgaa@mercymcauley.org.

Sincerely,

Alli Miazga
Admissions & Recruitment Coordinator
