ATHLETIC

CAMP SERIES


SUMMER CAMP MISSION/INTRODUCTION

Devon Preparatory School is pleased to offer our Summer Athletic Camp

Series for boys ages 9-14. The mission of the Piarist order and Devon

Prep is the holistic education of youth. Founded with the motto “Pietas

et Litterae”, meaning “Devotion to God and Knowledge”, the order

continues to evolve at and with Devon Prep.

Devon Prep serves as an important priority enabling the Piarist

mission of preparing young men for the rigors of twenty-first century life by modeling, in

word and deed, the Piarist values of charity, humility, patience, respect and simplicity.

In connection with our school mission, it is important that we offer boys the opportunity

to strengthen their mind and body through athletics, with the assistance and encouragement

of Devon Prep’s coaches and student athletes.

Our Athletic Camp series is designed for boys at all levels of play. The focus is on the

individual and promoting his strengths while helping him learn more about developing his

weaknesses. Our main goal is that the boys have fun, but we also hope their experience with

us will provide a new found confidence in themselves and their athletic skills.

We hope too see your son this summer!

• Please arrive 20 minutes early on the first day of camp to sign in accordingly.
