Registration for Summer @LSMSA 2023 is now open.
"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 have the option to stay overnight in the residence halls, or to go home each day after classes have finished. Either way, students have the chance to get a feel for the LSMSA experience in a fun and comfortable environment.
For the Summer of 2023, camp sessions will be June 11th - 16th, June 18th-23rd, and June 25th-30th.
Registration is limited to one week (Session 1, 2, or 3) per camper.
Overnight Campers can check in and move in to the residence hall on Sunday anytime between 2 and 4 pm followed by an optional orientation meeting at 4:30 pm for parents to meet staff and ask questions. Move out is Friday late afternoon.
