Summer Camps 2022
Sacred Heart Academy coaches welcome you to the home of the Spartans! At our athletic camps you will learn and challenge yourself through sport. Our camps are run by our athletic staff. Camp is a great place to learn the philosophy of the Sacred Heart Academy Athletics Program and make new friends!
Athletic Camps for grades 4-6 will focus on basic fundamentals. Campers will learn fundamental individual skills, work on basic team concepts and be challenged daily to advance their understanding of the game.
Athletic Camps for grades 7-9 will focus on higher level skills and team concepts. Campers will work individually to develop their own sense of play by learning new individual skills and team concepts. An emphasis will be placed on team strategy and game IQ.
For more information, please contact the Athletic Camps Coordinator, Paige Zimmerly, at email@example.com

Computer Science: Sew, you want to Explore Technology?
July 19-21, 8:30 am – 11:30 am
Day I - Sewable Electronics
This summer, experience Technology in a new light and let your imagination soar! You will work hands on with electronics, to build a circuit that powers a wearable accessory that you design! In this Exploring Technology camp, you will learn the basics of electronics using a collection of materials including LED lights, Arduino LilyPad, Batteries, Switches and Conductive thread. Using these materials you will stitch designs into fabrics and connect them to your components to light up your own accessory!
Day 2 - Arduino Circuit Board
Building on the information gained from the Sewable Electronics activity, we will dive deeper into robotics hardware by exploring a full Arduino circuit board. You’ll gain hands-on experience working with current, voltage, resistance, on a variety of sensors, motors, digital displays and more. You will then compile and download your own code to the Arduino circuit that will bring your invention to life!
Day 3 - Coding in 3D Spaces
We’ll finish off the camp by focusing on the software side of Computer Science. We’ll create models in a 3D space, and interact with them by coding their behavior. In this activity, you’ll be introduced to the computation thinking process, pattern recognition, abstraction, and algorithms. By the end you’ll be able to link and share your own 3D creation!

Lead with Heart Leadership Camp: So, You Want to Become a Leader?
July 12-14, 8:30 am – 11:30 am
Campers will think critically about their personal leadership styles and strengths and reflect on the different skills needed to be a good leader. Led by Sacred Heart Academy President, Mrs. Kristin Graham, campers will work to identify their own leadership styles and an awareness of personal strengths and growth areas. Campers will develop important skills such as; communication, teamwork and presenting. Campers will discuss what makes being a Catholic leader different and important. For more information please contact Camp Coordinator Paige Zimmerly at email@example.com.
Red & Gold Camp

Grades 7-9 – 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
SHA's largest showcase of school spirit and teamwork. Get an inside look at how it all comes together and learn the choreography of our aerobics, spirit, cheer, kickline and dance teams. This camp will teach girls the basics of leadership, teamwork and time management, all while learning healthy habits and having fun.
Science: “So, You Want to Be a Doctor?”
July 26-28, 8:30 am – 11:30 am
With doctors and nurses on the forefront of today’s pandemic, many young women see medicine as an opportunity to have a fulfilling career while answering the call to serve others.
We will explore the skills real doctors need to evaluate patients, from learning how to check blood pressures and heart rhythms, to blood oxygen levels and respiration. We will learn about real case studies by role playing patient doctor scenarios. We will have fun learning basic anatomy and test the different parts of our brains to find out about neuroscience. We will get to look at X-rays and try to tackle a real-life health issue facing a young patient. On the last day we will discuss the challenges and rewards of being women in medicine and learn about some of the amazing women physicians and leaders in STEM today.
