For students entering grades 6-8, O’Dowd’s Middle School Camp offers a fun and enriching experience on the O’Dowd campus. Our holistic program encourages self-exploration – creating opportunities for students to grow academically, creatively, socio-emotionally, and physically, through hands-on learning, engaging activities, small group work, and sports (basketball, football, soccer, running, and more.) See our sample list of courses below! Most classes average about 15 students, and families can choose to enroll students in as many or as few classes as they like!
