Moving Minds and Muscles is back for another four weeks of adventure and learning this summer. Students will play, learn, and exercise as they explore local and regional communities by engaging in authentic place-based learning activities. If you’re looking for an active camp that keeps your child moving, this is it! Your child will be challenged to expand their mind, confidence, and physical abilities while participating in field trips to local organizations, state parks, and outdoor recreational activity centers.
Moving Minds and Muscles is open to students entering grades 6-8 in the fall. Camp operates Monday through Thursday (apart from the week of the 4th of July, when we will meet Tuesday through Friday), with drop-off starting at 8:00 am and pick-up by 4:00 pm. This program is tuition-free this year due to a NEK PCE Grant and other funding.
Week 1: July 5–July 8: Park It
Week 2: July 11–July 14: Learning to Lead
Week 3: July 18–July 21: Building Community
Week 4: July 25–July 28: Destination Creation

Want to learn something new and exciting this summer? Interested in doing a sports camp? Maybe you would like to get a PE credit this summer to make room for another elective this fall? How about getting a jumpstart on a math class?

This year St. Johnsbury Academy is thrilled to offer an expansive summer program including Prep & Enrichment Courses, Athletic Camps, and Bridge Programs.

Prep & Enrichment courses will run between the weeks of June 20–July 28.

Earn credit for all Prep & Enrichment courses.

We also have a robust schedule of Athletics Programs for grades 3-12. And our Bridge Programs are for students moving from 8th to 9th grade. There is something for every student to learn and enjoy in the SJA 2022 Summer Program.
