WildCamps

Saint Ignatius High School introduces a variety of coed summer camps where middle school students can learn, explore, and experience a variety of topics and interests!

COVID-19 Update:

With an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 WildCamps. We were looking forward to our WildCamps as much as our campers and families, but our priority is protecting the health and safety of everyone in our Saint Ignatius community. Registrants for all WildCamps have been issued a full refund. We are working to create winter programming in hopes of conveying the WildCamp experience to grade school students. We will be in contact with interested families with more details and information as plans develop further. 

Due to the recent order by the Ohio Department of Health which closes K-12 schools to students until June 30, the 2020 Summer Enrichment Program has been rescheduled for July 7 - July 24 from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m We are working hard to adapt the SEP experience to ensure a safe, healthy and fun summer for your sons. We will be in contact over the next couple of weeks about the specific program modifications to include daily temperature checks and smaller group gatherings. Our priority is to ensure we are properly following the Ohio Department of Health’s guidelines for day camps. We invite you to register by Monday, June 1 to reserve your spot in the 2020 Summer Enrichment Program. 

Please note that no official decision has been made for Saint Ignatius High School’s Athletic Camps. We will provide additional updates on this webpage as we continue to monitor this situation.

As we look ahead to brighter days, we are incredibly grateful for your continued interest in Saint Ignatius High School. May you find peace knowing that we are keeping each and every one of you in our prayers throughout these uncertain times.
