Summer Sports, Architecture, and Engineering Camps Offered at Catholic University


Baseball Coach Ross Natoli has offered camps to youths for more than 25 years.

Although many of its undergraduate students go home during the summer months, the Catholic University campus in Washington, D.C., stays abuzz with activity — thanks in part to summer camps.

High school students with an interest in engineering or architecture have the opportunity to learn more about both the academic and professional sides of the disciplines.

The Experiences in Architecture program is an intense three-week workshop in July for students interested in architecture or other design-related fields. The program prepares students for the rigors of architecture school while acquainting them with campus life at the university level.

Engineering New Frontiers is a weeklong, residential summer camp for rising high school juniors and seniors held from July 14 to 19. Through the program, students work closely with CUA engineering faculty members to explore a wide variety of opportunities in engineering. Living on campus, students experience college life and are exposed to the best of Washington, D.C., including special museum tours, sporting events, and other activities.
