Camp Bruins

Parents looking for an enriching way for their child to spend this summer can turn to USJ's Camp Bruins, a full-time summer program for Junior Cubs through rising 6th grade students. The goal of the program, which runs from May 29th to August 1st, is to provide participants with a safe, fun environment that allows them to grow over the summer.

Camp Bruins is filled with activities that complement and enhance the learning experience that students receive during the regular school year. As we developed the program, we did so with the goal of meeting the needs of our families while providing the best program possible for the student.

Mornings are spent in a variety of activities from free choice centers to those that mimic many of the enrichments students have during the school year, such as gym, art, and music. Each week has a different theme with Fridays being water days that include inflatables.

The program runs from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Cost for attending five days a week all summer is $1,402, $1122 for four days a week, $953 for three days, and $730 for two days. The registration fee is $50 per student with a maximum of $100 per family. There is also a $15 t-shirt fee. The cost includes morning and afternoon snacks. Lunch can be purchased from the cafeteria using the same debit card system that is used during the regular school year, or lunch can be sent from home.

New this year is the addition of a "pick your week(s)" option. This allows families to select only the week(s) needed for camp, rather than enrolling for the entire summer. Families will still need to pay the $50.00 registration fee, and the $15.00 t-shirt fee. The options for the “pick your week(s)” are as follows:

Camp Bruins Week 1 May 29th – June 1st 4 days $130

Camp Bruins Week 2 June 4th – 8th 5 days $160

Camp Bruins Week 3 June 11th – 15th 5 days $160

Camp Bruins Week 4 June 18th – 22nd 5 days $160
