Camp Information

"Summer @LSMSA" allows students entering grades 7*, 8, and 9 the opportunity to experience life at LSMSA for one week. Campers choose three courses to take and spend six hours a day learning in a fun, hands-on atmosphere; there are no grades or tests in any courses - just the experiences!

In the evenings, students will have a variety of activities to choose from that are organized and monitored by professional LSMSA residential life staff. Students stay overnight in the residence halls. Campers have the chance to get a feel for the LSMSA experience in a fun and comfortable environment.

For the Summer of 2024, camp sessions will be June 2nd - 7th, June 9th - 14th, and June 16th - 21st. 

Registration is limited to one week (Session 1, 2, or 3) per camper.
