Day Camp

A summertime classic made state-of-the-art on St. Luke’s pristine campus under the direction of our experienced and knowledgeable staff, SLS Day Camp is the perfect place for young people to play, learn, and grow. With an emphasis on choice and fun, as well as community and character development, SLS Day Camp encourages campers to embrace their creative and playful sides while delighting in the time they share with one another and our exceptional counselors!

SLS Day Camp is led by faculty member Robert Salandra, who brings a wealth of experience teaching and leading programs at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. When he’s not teaching 5th grade at SLS, Rob is an avid naturalist and accomplished musician.
