Having a strong character is just as important as physical strength here at St. John’s. Those attending our summer camp get the chance to develop their emotional and spiritual identities by participating in religious service and leadership training among other activities.

Physical Fitness

The cadets have opportunities every day to engage in physical activities that give them the chance to grow stronger physically while having fun and being challenged. These can include physical training, intramural sports activities, and time in the weight room.

Life Skills

Summer camp at St. John’s allows campers to learn essential hard skills as well as other important life skills, with hands-on experiences in classes such as:

Life skills:

  • Etiquette
  • Family relations
  • Leadership

  • First aid
  • Personal finance
  • Small engine repair
  • Vehicle maintenance
  • Hunter safety course

Personal Growth

At the end of the summer, campers participate in exciting competitions. These competitions let them show off all that they’ve learned over the course of the camp, distinguish themselves from their peers, and display their physical and mental strength as well as their character.

The Military Stakes Competition includes:

  • Army physical fitness test
  • A combined academic exam
  • Rifle competition
  • Tug of war
  • Room inspections
  • Intramural events
  • Platoon drill competition

Fun is a big part of a summer at St. John’s Summer Camp — but there is more to it than that. Campers take part in activities that grow their character, create lifelong friendships, and give them the skills and the qualities that not only help them get through life but make them future leaders.

Excursions

Campers head to the St. John’s recreation center every evening. There, they can socialize and enjoy entertaining activities with others, giving them the chance to build camp comradery and friendships that will last a lifetime.

They also enjoy field trips — in the past, these have included trips to the President Eisenhower Museum in Abilene, a Kansas City theme park, Kenwood Cove Water Park, Rolling Hills Zoo and Museum, a major league baseball game, and a weekend of camping.
