The field trip schedule for this summer is not yet complete, but you can expect places like the science museum, bowling, and much more!

Day Camp Fees are to be paid in advance, based on the following schedule:

Upon Registration - registration fee of $20 per child, and first weeks tuition (this amount paid only applies to the first week you indicate your child will attend day camp as checked on the registration form. No "switching" weeks will be allowed. No refunds.)

Any children for whom payments have not been received by the due date, will be REMOVED from the registration list for that week, and we will fill the spot with children on the waiting list.

Reduced-Fee Scholarships: A limited number of reduced-fee scholarships available to those who qualify. If you expect that you cannot afford the full fee, please bring proof of income (pay stubs or documentation showing SSI/SSD, child support, cash assistance, etc) at the time of registration to accompany your scholarship application. The Reduced-fee scholarships, if you qualify, range between $20-$60 a week, depending on your income, the number of people in your family, and if you need pre/after care or not.
