Winter Break, Family Week and PD Day Camps
Pre & Post Camp
Regular camp hours are 9:00 am-4: 00 pm. To accommodate an earlier drop off and/or later pick up time for parents we do offer pre and post camp care for a fee. You must pre-register for this option to ensure proper staffing/child ratios are met. Registration is available online.
Hot Lunch may be ordered online up to 24 hours prior to the required day. Please note that our hot lunch consists of a main course with veggies/dip or fruit and a drink. You will need to pack a dessert, extra drinks and snacks to round out the food for the day.
An informed consent and emergency contact form must be filled out online and submitted electronically through our website. Children who do not have a signed form on file are not permitted to attend day camp programs. These forms are only required to be filled out once (unless information changes) for the 2022 Day Camp season and will be kept on file. Access online waiver here.
