Program description

Recognizing the impact of summer learning loss for students who don't have access to academic resources in the recess between each school year, Holy Cross Ministries focuses on providing a safe, quality program for elementary-aged children over the summer. This Summer Camp provides a variety of activities designed to help students build skills and assets that will help reduce summer learning loss and increase social and emotional development.

Summer Intern Testimonials

Liza Felix
Working with a team like the one at HCM is one of support, compassion and joy! Getting to interact with the Park City kids allows you to truly feel and know the definition of love. As a Summer Intern you learn so much from the kids about finding happiness in the simplicity of life, which makes waking up and going to work twice the fun!
Elizabeth Tietema
Working with the Summer Program gave me the ability to grow as a person. The staff at Holy Cross Ministries and the children we worked with showed me on a daily basis how to live my life to the fullest. There was never a day that I didn't leave the school without a smile on my face and I give all the credit to the kids!
Aspen Marie
My time with Holy Cross Ministries and the Summer Program was an experience I'll never forget. I came into it with the idea that I'd be making a difference in the kids' lives but I think they made an even bigger difference in mine. I'm beyond blessed to have had the opportunity to spend a summer with so many great kids. They'll forever have a special place in my heart.
Shea Buckley
During my time with the summer program, I gained insight into the incredible gift that is a mutual relationship of teaching and learning. I spent every day in awe of the ability of my students to give and receive love in a way that is so unselfish and without condition. I left the summer with countless new relationships, both with the students and with fellow Holy Cross staff, and feeling so inspired by the vision and mission of Holy Cross Ministries.
