We'll cover what archaeologists do and why the field matters (especially today), problems of looting and repatriation, and, of course, whether or not Indiana Jones is the ultimate archaeologist. Our young Dr. Jones' and Lara Croft's will participate in their very own dig, a field trip, a mock debate over the Parthenon marbles, and, finally, will have the chance to showcase their knowledge and critique archaeology as seen on TV and in the movies. By the end of the week they will also be able to answer the ever-present question posed by archaeologists in the field: dirt or tan? Contact camp director Sarah Mathiesen at smathiesen@sssas.org

    At SummerTimes Day Camp we understand the importance of play. We are dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing environment where the campers can explore new opportunities, make new friends, and create memories to last a lifetime. The Lower School’s 16 acre campus provides plenty of indoor and outdoor space for wonderful summer experiences. For rising kindergarteners through rising sixth graders, Day Camp offers a wide range of enriching activities each day, including arts and crafts, music and drama, science and technology, sports, and daily swimming. Campers are grouped by age into “home bases” according to grade level and assigned to a caring counselor who rotates with the group through the daily activities. The counselors will not only supervise activities, but act as role models as the campers are encouraged to act in a kind and responsible manner.  We believe that each camper is important and unique, and we strive to encourage these individual strengths each day.

    • Campers must bring their lunch every day.
    • Each camper is provided a fabulous Day Camp T-shirt.
    • Campers utilize the Lower School’s excellent facilities including music rooms, art studios, computer and science labs, and the tinkering space.
    • Each week of camp has a designated theme. Special events and field trips are designed around the theme.
    • Off-campus transportation is provided by school buses operated by our own team of professional SSSAS Transportation Department drivers.
    We look forward to welcoming your son or daughter to this very special group of SummerTimes Day Campers!

    Saints Wrestling Camp is led by SSSAS Varsity Head Wrestling Coach Trae Humphreys who is assisted by former All-State and current Division I Collegiate Wrestlers. This camp is designed to introduce many elements of the sport that will lead to success both on and off of the mat. Our staff will help wrestlers of all levels improve their skills and abilities by offering introduction to technique, hands-on instruction, live wrestling, and games. Participants will learn basic takedowns, moves from the bottom position, and pinning combinations, as well as ways to develop their own wrestling style. Off of the mat we focus on our team motto: “wrestling is training for life” and learn the many ways that our experiences in wrestling can help teach us life lessons. Coaches will also address important issues such as proper nutrition, hydration, and conditioning for wrestlers.
    Most importantly, this camp is designed to teach the sport of wrestling and encourage competition in a fun environment.
    Questions should be directed to Coach Humphreys at thumphreys@sssas.org   

    Please note: Every day of the week, this camp will take a trip to the pool. Please remember to bring a change of clothes, a towel, and swim gear each day.

    Do you love animals? Do you love field trips? If so, this camp is for you. A daily field trip format is combined with lab work so students can learn more about the amazing animal world. Students will explore all the branches of the animal kingdom: invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. We will see animals in the wild as well as in captivity, do animal crafts and animal habitat projects, and meet people who work with animals. As we learn about animals, we will also learn about their natural habitats in the air, water, and on land, and what people can do to help preserve natural environments. This camp is run by Saints Middle School Science Teacher Robert Davis and is for kids who want to mix a strong science course with lots of summertime fun and adventure. Come join us for a “wild” week of Zoology Camp! Contact SSSAS Middle School Science teacher, Mr. Robert Davis at rdavis@sssas.org with any questions you may have about this exciting camp.
