2019 Casserly House Education Summer Camp

The Casserly House Educational Summer Camp was held from July 8th  through the 19th. The first week the students learned all about space and astronomy. They studied the planets, the sun and moon, constellations, and space exploration, and took a trip to the Hayden Planetarium. The second week of camp the students learned all about the continent of Africa – its languages, cultures, wildlife, art, and much more. They took a field trip to the Museum of Fine Arts to see African and Ancient Egyptian art, and got to make our own clay statues. At the end of the week, the students presented what they learned, and did a fabulous job! Visit www.csjboston.org to learn more about the Sisters of St. Joseph and their ministries
