Creativity Unleashed at Saint Lucy School Summer Camp
Learning doesn’t stop over sum-
mer vacation. Over 40 kindergarten
through eighth grade students were
able to enjoy four fun-packed weeks of
outdoor fun, crafts, movies, field trips,
cooking, and some good old-fashioned
summer fun at the recent Saint Lucy
School Summer Camp.
Mrs. Jane Riley, Extended Day Care
Director, Kindergarten Aide, PE teach-
er and Saint Lucy alumna, has been the
inspiration Saint Lucy School Summer
Camp for over 15 years. Her work and
enthusiasm, along with the support of
her dedicated staff, has helped create
summer memories for many Saint Lucy
Each of the four camp weeks has a
dedicated theme. Week One was Pri-
vate Eye Detectives, where students
had to use their skills to investigate and
solve the case of the missing treasure
and earn their detective certificate.
Upon solving the case, they enjoyed
making chocolate explosion baskets
and marshmallow blasters.
Having cracked the case, students
began Week Two with Harry Potter-
inspired Wizarding Week. The Sorting
Hat placed students in their respective
houses. Houses competed with each
other in a variety of tasks and games.
Young wizards also created hats, ties,
and wands that levitated feathers.
Superheroes Assembled was the
theme for Week Three. Summer camp
superheros experienced a superhero
training obstacle course in full costume
as they donned their self made shields
and capes. They enjoyed culinary de-
lights that week such as pizza shields
and hulk pudding.
Camp’s final fun-filled week was
Sole Survivor. Campers loved mak-
ing team shelters out of giant boxes.
Survivor teams created canoes and
participated in canoe and scooter races
combined with a variety of individual
and team challenges.
A special highlight of the week was
to cheer on the Special Olympic torch
run in support of athletes as it ran past
the school down Winchester Boulevard.
In addition to the themed crafts,
games, and activities, students played
basketball, hockey, and enjoyed lots
of water play in the warm weather.
What a way to infuse imagination,
creativity, and teamwork to fill pre-
cious summer days.
