Enrichment Camp Program Information

IMPORTANT ENRICHMENT CAMP INFORMATION

(PLEASE READ PRIOR TO REGISTRATION)

 

  • IN-PERSON CLASSES - We intend to offer all enrichment camp experiences in-person. With the County mandate to provide proper social distancing between each student (and teacher) in the classroom, we have limited the number of students in each classroom.
  • CANCELLATION POLICY - Camps will not be refunded once registration closes. Registration closes at the end of the day on the Monday the week before camp or class begins. A customer can receive a refund up to the Monday of the week before their Summer Program camp or class begins. 
  • DAILY SCREENING - Every day, prior to coming to campus, students will be required to respond to a set of screening questions, the answers to which indicate whether the student is cleared to come to campus that day. For parents, this process involves logging into your Summer Program account to access our online tracking system. Each student will be electronically issued a daily color code on their iPad and/or smartphone; and they must show that code at campus access points to gain entry to the campus.  
  • The cost of our Enrichment Camp includes a Summer Program apparel item.
