Summer Youth Camp

2022 Summer Camp Update

The Kiernan Center is currently undergoing a major renovation and expansion that will result in a state of the art recreation and fitness center as well as wonderful new space for summer camp. Construction often comes with unforeseen impacts and this project is no different. To ensure that the renovation and expansion will be complete for the start of the Fall 2022 semester, the very difficult decision has been made to close the Kiernan Center beginning March 12, 2022 and continuing until project completion in August. This complete closure of the facility is necessary to ensure necessary time for all of the work to be completed so that we can open the new and improved facility for the start of the next academic year.

As a result we will unfortunately be unable to to offer summer camp this year. COVID and construction have put a halt to summer camp for the past three summers. This has been very difficult for us as camp is something we greatly look forward to each year. Please know that we miss having your children at camp and we are looking forward to returning in 2023!

Camp registration will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.
