Headfirst Summer Camps at St. Patrick's
We invite children entering Kindergarten to Grade 9 to engage in favorite and new activities, wonder about the world around them, and create their own vision of summer bliss. In partnership with Headfirst Summer Camps, we create engaging, hands-on learning environments using the power of play to delight and inspire. Each week, we immerse our campers in a carefully crafted story, giving them a unique way to understand and experience different types of challenges, to work as a team to achieve a goal, and to learn when they don’t know they’re being taught.
Through the story-centered programming, we aim to strengthen six core developmental skills in our campers: Optimism, resiliency, hope and goal-setting, emotional mastery, self-efficacy, and grit and determination. These are the Super Six skills. According to research, these traits are the key social and emotional building blocks necessary for authentic happiness and success. Many of these skills are practiced naturally in sports. The goal is to infuse them into all of the programs, to help guide campers toward finding their own personal best.
