DeLaSalle High School offers a variety of summer youth camps.

During June and July, DeLaSalle’s Camp Islander offers nine different summer camps in drama and athletics for elementary, middle and high school students. Annually, hundreds of students have attended the DeLaSalle summer camps, in part because DeLaSalle is centrally located, being the closest high school to downtown Minneapolis and to the University of Minnesota.

Camp instructors, moderators, and coaches are current DeLaSalle staff members, alumni, and friends.

Each camp offers great fun, outstanding coaching and directing, with an emphasis on fundamental skill development for participants. Students may sign up for a single camp or multiple camps.
