Bolles Summer launches in early June with a diverse offering of summer camp programs, as well as Bolles Day Camp and Teen Camp. It is the only Jacksonville riverfront summer camp that provides access to boating, tubing, dog-paddling, marine science study and water sports activities for campers on the St. Johns River. What’s not to dig? Held on the Bolles Lower School Ponte Vedra Beach Campus, the Bolles Middle School Bartram Campus and the Bolles Upper School San Jose and Lower School Whitehurst Campuses, Bolles Summer Camp programs utilize Bolles’ ruff-reshingly fine academic and sports facilities. Bolles Summer opportunities also include a wide range of individually focused camps and academic enhancement opportunities — including an educational partnership with Mayo Clinic. We promise our summer offerings are All Things Paw-sible and then some! Woof!
