Just because it’s the summertime, doesn’t mean learning has to stop. Saint Leo University will introduce several new summer camp programs this year while hosting some popular favorites at its Pasco County campus. The goal of the camps is to help youth learn new skills (and have fun) while school is out for summer break. 


Saint Leo’s summer camps are taught by university faculty and staff and include a range of offerings — sports such as basketball and baseball, swimming lessons, an acrobatics & tumbling clinic, recreation activities, and academic programs such as music, STEM, robotics, and writing. The programming offers lots opportunities for youth to stretch their minds and bodies. 

Popular returning camps are robotics, baseball, basketball, and the Little Lions Recreation Camp. This year, the university’s College of Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Data Science (CARDS) will offer three robotics camps — co-ed middle school and high school camps, and the Girls Can! camp for ages 11 to 15. 


New camps this year focus on the arts with offerings in voice, instrumental, and general music as well as writing and illustrating books. For those interested in science, the new Lions Den STEM Summer Camp will take an interdisciplinary approach to scientific literacy through an emphasis on the interconnectedness of human and natural systems. Campers will focus on real-life environmental problems and propose solutions; they will perform investigations, collect data for mathematical computation, engineer solutions, and write about their findings using the scientific method. 


Full details about the camps can be found at https://www.saintleocamps.com/. See below for list of camps and dates. Saint Leo University’s campus is at 33701 County Road 52, St. Leo, FL 33574. Camps will take place on campus including at the university’s Wellness Center pool.
