Some cool summer school and camps

Summer school and summer camp activities that are being offered by Catholic schools in the diocese this summer offer a wide variety of adventures for students aspiring to become chess wizards to prospective filmmakers as well as those who want to be better learners for life.

Potential filmmakers will spend their days learning how to shoot, edit and direct "high-quality productions" during the Mariner Explorers Filmography Program at Hayward's Moreau Catholic High School. The program, according to the course description posted on the school website, is geared for students in grades 6 to 8 who will cap off the experience by producing a live news broadcast.

Meanwhile Carondelet High School in Concord is offering a weeklong summer day camp for girls entering grades 4 to 5 in fall 2017. Offered in partnership with the California-based nonprofit organization Girls Leadership, the camp teaches girls "everyday leadership skills that will serve them over a lifetime."

Beginning the week of June 19 Oakland's Holy Names High School is hosting a four-week enrichment camp for youth — boys and girls — entering grades six, seven and eight in the areas of STEAM and athletics. The curriculum of the so-called STEM/TechBridge portion of the summer session, is designed to interest students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) as well as "promote inquiry and highlight real-world applications."

A course called Chess Wizards at Salesian College Preparatory in Richmond will bring a curriculum advertised as fun, original and high energy while at the same time offering a dose of critical thinking, sportsmanship and learning to prospective campers. The camp will be offered the week of July 17.

Concord's De La Salle High School is offering athletic summer camps from June to August that cover a range of sports from basketball, baseball and of course specialized camps for football players — separate sessions for quarterbacks and wide receivers — to camps for those who play water polo and wrestlers and track and field athletes.

For more information about summer offerings, check out the information in this section or view the various school websites.
