Registration Open for Marist’s Many Summer Camps


Marist is offering 49 summer camps with the first ones starting on June 10 and the last ones starting on July 22. Camps for grammar school students last for three to four days. While camps for incoming freshman and current Marist students can be longer. 

“We have three different categories of camp: Grade school camps, incoming freshmen camps, and camps for our students,” said Marist Athletic Director Mr. Simpson. 

All the camps help Marist become better in different ways.

“We view athletics as the front porch to the institution. That’s the first time a lot of families come into contact with us, through our athletic programs,” said Simpson.

For boys, there is baseball, four basketball, two football, two lacrosse, two soccer, two volleyball, and six wrestling camps. Girls camps include four basketball, two cheerleading, golf, cross country, soccer, three softball, two tennis, four volleyball, and six wrestlers camps. Co-Ed athletic camps are track and field, pole vault, and golf. 

“Kiddie camps are a great introduction for parents and families to get to know our school,” said Simpson.

Kiddie Camps are the other part of grammar school camps. They are for kids up to fourth grade and it allows younger kids to get to know Marist. There will be all day camp, two basketball, soccer, softball, and volleyball camps. 

All high schools in the surrounding area of Marist have camps for young kids to come and see what could be their future campus and meet coaches.

Marist offers more than just sports camps. 

“We’ve got probably more [camp] offerings than any school in the neighborhood and that’s a good thing for Marist,” said Simpson.

Marist offers art, band, broadcasting, chess, dance, forensic science, journalism, leadership, fencing, technology, and theater. All of those camps are co-ed. Some camps start as low as kindergarten and go as high as freshman. It also shows how Marist values academics. 

“Incoming freshmen camps are great because they give an opportunity for our incoming freshmen to feel comfortable on our campus, get to know their way around, and build relationships with students and staff,” said Simpson. 

Freshmen camps allow new students to form a connection with other freshmen and coaches.

“The last part is the returning students who get to work with coaches over the summer,” said Simpson.

High schools are allowed practice for 25 days over the summer. This helps current players improve on their skills and coaches to piece together what their teams will be.
