  1. Keep your school year enrollment schedule – If you keep your current school year schedule all throughout the summer you will simply pay your monthly tuition rate on July 1st and ½ of your tuition on August 1st. This will allow you to attend all 6 weeks of camp at your current location.
  2. Sign up week by week – You may choose any week you would like to enroll. Applications will come out in January to prioritize currently enrolled families. A weekly rate for camp will apply and payment will be due by May 1st to hold your spot.


Other Notes:

  • If you choose to INCREASE your enrollment during summer camp, AND plan to attend all 6 weeks of camp, I will honor the monthly tuition amount instead of the weekly amount.
  • There is no camp tuition reimbursement for changed dates or for enrollment changes.
  • You are welcome to add a 7th week of camp at the weekly rate at the other site to help support your child care needs. These overlap weeks fill up fast!
  • Summer camp applications are honored in the order they are received so it is to your advantage to turn them in as soon as possible.
