Summer Camps

Students gathered for lunch at Deep South Taco.

During the summer of 2020, three different age-specific camps will be offered at D'Youville: a healthcare professions camp, a science camp, and a theater and language arts camp.

Summer camps help build social skills and self-confidence all while focusing on topics of interest. This summer, D’Youville is hosting educational camps for students in grades 1-12 which will allow each child to explore their own interests right on our campus. 

The D’Youville All Sports Camp, run by our athletics department, provides a summer camp experience that combines sports activities, educational enrichment, nutrition, and health services to West Side youth ages 9 to 13 years old.
