Important Information

Required Online Forms

Campers will not be permitted in the classroom until 100% of the Health Profile is completed online.

Register Early

Summer camps fill up fast, so register early. In rare cases, we are forced to cancel camps. Should this happen we will make every attempt to place your child in another camp session or offer you a full refund.


Campers are required to bring their own lunch. Staff will escort and supervise students during lunch and return them to their afternoon activity. Refrigeration will be provided. Campers will not be permitted to purchase lunch or use the vending machines on campus.


If your child is staying for after-care, it can be a very long day. You may send an additional snack and drink for your camper.
