Summer Camp

The Saint Florian Center offers summer camp programs for children and teens ages 6-17 with a focus on leadership, communication, problem-solving, confidence and team-building skills. Our camp is seven weeks long, beginning in early June and ending in late July. 

Each age group of campers are taught leadership and responsibility through assuming a peer leadership role within the camp. Through the documentation of campers, or cadets, meeting and exceeding expectations, they are able to earn money for their age group to spend during the camp. This way of learning by doing prepares our campers for "real world" salaries. 

Our camp utilizes our connections throughout the Indianapolis area to provide our campers with high-value learning opportunities, as well as many field trips around the state! 


Please see below for more information about the three age groups:
