Available Summer Camps

June 1, -  July 31, 2022

Ursuline Athletic Camps

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 nine 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 camp at Ursuline Academy is directed by the head coach in that sport. In addition, the assistant coaches, along with current and former top performers from the program, work with the athletes to make sure they have the fundamentals, focus, and fun to improve their games. 

Grades PreK-12

Age levels are based on grade levels for the UPCOMING school year. Every sport has different age group offerings, so read the camp description carefully on the ticketing site. Some camps have several age bracket sessions.

*Any incoming 9th grader must be registered to attend Ursuline Academy in the fall.
