Our primary goal is to provide for the safety of your children this summer. In so doing, we will create a highly Christian and moral environment, conducive to learning, fun, and full of recreational activities

covid-19 safety guidelines

Our top priority at Belen Summer Camp is always the health and safety of campers and camp counselors. We will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation. We continue to restructure our camp program to ensure a safe environment for your child as that is our number one priority. If your child is sick, they must remain home. Nothing is more important than this, nothing should be a higher priority than the well-being of your child and others. 

When registering your child you acknowledge that you are aware of the inherent risks of sending your child to camp. While Belen Summer Camp will put forth its greatest effort to prevent a COVID-19 infection, the camp cannot guarantee a full-risk mitigation for any camper attending.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
