A Country Setting

For over 80 years, McDonogh has been offering quality summer programs for children ages 4 to 18. The McDonogh Summer Programs include an array of traditional day camps, academic experiences, and day and overnight sports clinics. The camps are conducted on McDonogh’s pastoral 800-acre campus, complete with stables and indoor/outdoor riding rings, two fishing ponds, two fully equipped playground areas, 20 tennis courts, and extensive outdoor athletic fields. Our outdoor adventure complex includes a state-of-the-art rock-climbing tower and a high and low ropes course with a team building development course. Indoor facilities include a 54,000-square-foot field house with seven basketball courts, an aquatic center that includes an Olympic-size swimming pool, two indoor batting ranges, a wellness center, and a wrestling room. Our fine arts center boasts an elegant 588-seat theater with modern stage, lighting and sound, black box, music room, and set design room. The McDonogh campus also includes multiple computer labs, art rooms, classrooms, and dormitory space to accommodate over 100 students. The Edward St. John Student Center opened in April 2014 and features two dining halls, as well as a lecture hall with stage, fine arts and dance facilities, the infirmary, offices, and meeting rooms.
