Summer Programs

Sports Camps

Sports camps held at Tower Hill are run by both highly-qualified Tower Hill School coaches who have led their teams to many successful seasons and by outside partner organizations.
Due to space limitations, our sports program is only able to accommodate one program per week this summer. We look forward to offering more sports camps again next summer!
