A Message from Patrick and Patti Kearns
Dear Parents and Campers,
4 Star Camps at the University of Virginia would like to welcome you to our rewarding and fun summer enrichment programs held on the beautiful grounds of one of the most prestigious universities in the country.
Our programs are tailored to rising 8th 12th grades. Along with our Academic Programs we also offer outstanding Golf and Tennis Programs for all levels. All of our programs offer stimulating and constructive classes, fun memories, and new friendships. Our excellent reputation has been built on our dedicated staff and programs that provide a safe, fun, and exciting summer experience to create “A Summer That Lasts a Lifetime.”
As a parent and camp director, I am fully aware of the special challenges and opportunities teenagers face as they begin their transition to young adulthood. Our mission within all of our Summer Programs is to provide our students with the type of encounters and mentoring that will foster the personal growth and wisdom needed to face these challenges. Students attending any of our programs will enjoy an exciting summer filled with intellectual rewards, personal growth, and self-confidence in a safe and secure environment.
Not all high school summer programs are the same. 4 Star Camps at the University of Virginia offers exceptional programs and experiences you won’t find anywhere else!
Among the essentials of our summer programs we are proud to offer:
Stimulating and Rewarding Classes –
a well designed curriculum which focuses on teaching the necessary skills for success in middle school, high school, and beyond. The small class sizes, taught by our outstanding and professional instructors, prove to be as equally challenging as they are rewarding.
Fun and Excitement Outside the Classroom –
afternoons at 4 Star are a time to relax, unwind, and maybe try something new and different. Students can choose among our world-class sports programs, recreational and fitness activities, and fine arts workshops.
Exciting Evening Activities –
we offer a great variety of special dinners followed by “just for fun” activities including bowling, capture the flag, movies on and off campus, late night sundaes, dances, and more.
Outstanding Supervision by our Caring Staff –
4 Star’s number one priority is to provide exceptional supervision and safety for our campers. Our leadership team includes the Camp Director, Resident Advisors, the Academics Director, Directors of Golf and Tennis, and a personable well-trained group of counselors and support staff. Each and every one of our staff members is dedicated to presenting a safe and secure environment for students.
Friends for Life –
one of the most fulfilling experiences for the 4 Star staff is witnessing friendships grow not only among campers, but also among campers and staff. Check out days are filled with tears and hugs between all campers and members of the 4 Star team. We try hard to create a “family” atmosphere among students from all over the world so that everyone feels at home. Come discover the difference we make in our campers lives in our summer programs! We hope we have the opportunity to meet you and welcome you to this special community this summer.
