Registration is Open for Villa Maria’s 10 Summer Camps 

Villa Maria College is hosting 10 in-person summer camps this July. The camps, which were designed with high school students in mind, offer students the chance to learn more about a topic that interests them in an educational setting that is laid back and fun.
