If all goes according to plan with Johnson County and the State of Kansas, below is our plan to start summer activities at St. James Academy. All dates listed below are subject to change per the State of Kansas, KSHSAA, and Johnson County Health Department guidelines and recommendations.

Please review our Summer Reopening Plan.

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 is an inadequate number of registrants.  See the event ticket for details.  Please contact Anna Bomhoff at 913-254-4240 or  abomhoff@sjakeepingfaith.org or Tom Radke at tradke@sjakeepingfaith.org with questions. Enrichment camp opportunities are also available for grades 7-8.
