Clubs & Activities

After-School Clubs

 

In the spirit of Catholic joy, Our Lady of Perpetual Help School enjoys a cooperative approach to all student activities. Families, students, administration, faculty, and staff work together within the school community, the parish community, and the world. Activities aimed at developing a strong sense of social awareness, an appreciation for the fine arts, and the importance of family-centered activities provide an essential element of each student’s education. The following club selection is a preview of what is currently offered or has been offered to OLPH students based on interest and club moderator availability. 

Scouts

We are a “scout run” troop employing the qualities and ideals found in the BSA program to build character, foster citizenship, develop leadership & commitment to community, and an appreciation for the outdoors.

We offer a full range of scouting activities from weekly troop meetings to monthly overnight outings, plus a full week of Summer Camp. Outdoor activities embrace the complete scouting experience, rich in adventure and learning: pioneering, canoeing, white water rafting, skiing, backpacking, base camping, and biking just to name a few. We are Troop 794!
