Camp Information

“Summer @LSMSA” allows boarding and day students entering grades 7, 8 and 9 an opportunity to experience LSMSA. Campers spend six hours a day in fun, but educational courses of their choosing. These exciting, exploratory courses are led by LSMSA faculty - ranked by Niche.com in 2019 as the #3 faculty in America! There's no tests and no grading - just fun, hands-on learning!

In the afternoon and evening hours students have lots of activities to choose from that are organized and monitored by professional LSMSA residential life staff. Students have the option of staying overnight in our residence hall or going home each day after class. Either way, students will get a feel for the LSMSA experience in a fun and comfortable environment.

List of 6 items.
