Escape (Grades 2-7)
Escape, Saint Mark’s School’s summer program, is held on the school’s beautiful 5.5-acre campus, offering a unique experience for children entering 2nd through 7th grades in the fall. During each session, Escape campers take field trips twice a week. In previous summer, campers and counselors have visited the El Capitan Theater, Scandia, Huntington Beach, Universal Studios, Boomers, Raging Waters, Knott’s Berry Farm, California Adventure, and Disneyland. While on campus, teamwork, and fun are a constant part of many activities and games, including Capture the Flag, Water Carnival, Counselor Hunt, Saint Mark’s Dodge Ball, and Alien Adventure. Smiles and laughter are everywhere whether campers and counselors are playing games, cooking, performing drama, or doing arts and crafts. Be part of Escape XIX, spend time with friends old and new, and leave with lasting memories!
