Camps are an excellent way to meet new friends and practice your passions!
At St.Thomas Aquinas High School, students are encouraged to pursue their passions. Our summer camps offer weekly sessions in programs such as cooking and acting. Christian Kunkel and Kasey Wright are taking the cooking camp this summer and are eager to dabble with new recipes in the kitchen. . Christian said his favorite thing he made was Shepherds pie and strawberry ice cream. He has learned to be a more creative chef and how to work as a team when cooking. Kasey had the most fun making spaghetti and meatballs from scratch, she learned useful skills such as how to set up a table and how to use equipment in the kitchen.
Our theater camp takes aspiring young actors through the musical theater experience.The young actors will show off the new skills they have learned in a showcase performance in front of a crowd on Friday of each week. The eager young performers will take part in daily activities and lessons, the majority of which are based on the Florida State Thespian Competition standards. For a few weeks, the youthful adolescents will learn acting techniques, energetic choreography, and meet other kids who have a similar enthusiasm for theater.
