What is the camp store?
Every Thursday, campers get out their camp checkbooks and purchase special snacks and drinks. Parents whose children attend a full summer should give a designated amount of cash to the counselors at the beginning of the summer. Children who attend one or two weeks should deposit less. No refunds.
What enrollment forms are needed?
All children, including currently enrolled children, must return a SUMMER CAMP ENROLLMENT FORM designating weeks of attendance. A health physical and up-to-date shot record are required. A $30 non-refundable registration fee and deposit equal to your last week of summer day camp should accompany the SUMMER CAMP ENROLLMENT FORM for children not currently enrolled in the CAP room.
How are fees paid?
Children may attend part or all of the summer. Weekly fees reflect five full days and must be paid for all weeks checked on the SUMMER CAMP ENROLLMENT FORM regardless of absences. If your child attends any part of a week, fees are paid in full for the entire week. Attendance can only be set up in weekly blocks. If families have more than one child enrolled, a 10% discount is applied to the tuition of the oldest. Summer Camp fees are paid through Tuition Express which will withdraw your tuition from a bank account or credit card each Monday.
SUMMER CAMP WEEKS OF ATTENDANCE CAN BE ADDED, SPACE PERMITTING, BUT CANNOT BE TRADED OR DELETED.
