Believe it or not, summer at Saint Vincent College is not just for summer classes, business hours and Steelers Training Camp. Starting in May and running through June and July we have a slew of children’s camps ranging from sports to religion. We regularly host camps that include lacrosse, basketball, volleyball, soccer, youth groups, challenge camp and crossroads. These camps are each attended by anywhere from approximately 30–200 children who are ready to experience life on a college campus. Younger children might come just to enjoy their certain activity, while older kids may be considering Saint Vincent as a future home. No matter the camp or the reason, Event and Conference Services makes sure that these kids have a safe, fun learning experience that they can be excited to tell their friends about when they get home.
As you may know, Saint Vincent College is home to The Pittsburgh Steelers and has been since 1966, thanks to Steelers founder Arthur J. Rooney. Not only do we host Steelers Training Camp every year, but Men’s Fantasy Camp and Women’s Training Camp as well. These camps are a lot of fun for anyone who is a Steelers fan. Men and women get the opportunity to go through training camp similar to what the Steelers go through on the exact fields they use. Former players and coaches make appearances, the participants grow to become friends, they get a great workout and experience a day in the life of a Steeler. Event and Conference Services recently coordinated the men’s camp, while the women have their turn at the beginning of August.
