SUMMER CAMPS


2017 St. James Academy Youth Summer Camps

Summer sports camps are exciting opportunities for youth to interact with high school coaches and players.  Learn about the St. James community and experience our team spirit while participating in activities during the break from school.  Each camp fee is $80 unless otherwise specified.  All camps will be held at St. James unless otherwise noted.  Each camp has a minimum number of participants required so we reserve the right to cancel a camp if there are an inadequate number of registrants.  See the event ticket for details.  Register online at www.sjakeepingfaith.org. Please contact Anna Bomhoff with questions at 913-254-4240 or at abomhoff@sjakeepingfaith.org.
