     2020 Preschool Summer Camp Information 

     Preschool Summer Camp is for our youngest students set in a nurturing environment while providing fun learning experiences based on the same themes as our 'Sun'sational Summer Camp. Preschool campers follow a different activity schedule than 'Sun'sational campers.  Additional information for Preschool:
    • Open to students age 3-5
    • Students age 5 and entering kindergarten may register for either the Preschool camp or one of the K-8 camps
    • All students must be fully potty trained 
    • Located at Paseo Hills
      Other Important Information 
    • Early registrations will be accepted beginning February 3, 2020, but may not be approved immediately; register early to take advantage of incentive registration fee pricing
    • All registered students will receive one free summer camp t-shirt
      • A second free t-shirt will be provided only when you attend the Family Orientation event
    • The registration fee and deposit are both nonrefundable
    • Once you have registered online, your contract will be reviewed by our staff to be sure that we have complete information and documentation
      • Upon approval of your contract, your debit/credit card which you will supply online, will be charged the registration fee PLUS a $100 deposit per child that will be applied toward the invoice for your first scheduled dates (i.e., if you register for July, pay the deposit, and then add days for June, the system automatically applies the deposit to the July dates)
      • The amount of your registration fee will be determined by the date you applied, not the date of contract approval (see above Register Early/Discounted Pricing)
      • The balance will be invoiced and is due as outlined on the "Important Dates" table below.
    • Your Account Representative will attempt to contact you if there is missing or incorrect information, or if your payment does not go through.  You will have no more than 3 business days to respond and correct the situation or your contract will not be approved and will be deleted from pending status. This time period may be shortened when we are at a deadline.  This will require you to re-submit your contract and it will be subject to the current registration fee and field trip availability.   Your child cannot attend without an approved contract. 
    IMPORTANT:  If you are not sure of your schedule but know that you will need summer care, or if you choose your dates based on the activity calendar, it is highly recommended that you submit a registration contract for approval, choosing at least 3 days, and then submit a change to your contract prior to the billing date (SEE IMPORTANT DATES BELOW).  Field trips are subject to closure upon reaching capacity.  The initial contract approval process is more in-depth than a change approval.  Delaying registration may result in a delayed start date at camp.  A delay in choosing your days may result in missing desired field trips due to closure.  Field trip and activity calendars will be made available as soon as possible once all venues and activities have been confirmed.  
  • Rates and Plan Options
    The Pick Your Days plan provides for 3, 4, or 5 days per week, and is subject to a weekly rate.  The days may vary, and you choose which weeks your child will attend. You may reserve for as few or as many weeks at a time as you wish.  They do not have to be consecutive weeks.  A calendar will open up during registration for you to choose your dates; please choose your dates carefully.  Additional dates must be reserved prior to the invoicing date, and are subject to availability (see table below).  Weeks with only 3 days will still require a 3-day minimum.
      • Grade K-8 (based on rate of $38 per day with a 3-day per week minimum)
        • $114 per week for 3 days
        • $152 per week for 4 days
        • $190 per week for 5 days
      • Preschool (based on a rate of $40 per day with a 3-day per week minimum)
        • $120 per week for 3 days
        • $160 per week for 4 days
        • $200 per week for 5 days

    Changes to your contract are subject to a $25 change fee.  Additional days after the payment deadline will be subject to availability and an additional fee.  Field trips are subject to closure upon reaching capacity, so early registration is encouraged.  After the the payment deadline date, field trips will close based on enrollment.  Additional or unscheduled drop-in days will not be permitted on the day of a field trip.  We monitor enrollment numbers on a regular basis. 

  • Register Early

    Registration Information

    • Online registration opens February 3, 2020, at 12:01 a.m.
      • see Enrollment (reservation and payment) section below
    • Every student must have a current copy of immunizations on file before their registration contract will be approved
    • Once approved, each child's Emergency Information (EIIR) form must be signed prior to attending.  This can be done:
      • At your Before & After School Care site
      • At the Parent Meeting
      • On the first day of camp attendance (allow extra time as we expect lines the first two weeks of camp)
    • All accounts must be current and in good standing
    • A separate registration and fee will be required for Before & After School Care
     Discounted Registrations Fee Pricing - $30 extended beyond April
     $20 per family in February, plus $100 per child deposit 
                   $30 per family in March and later
                   The registration deadline is April 30th for guaranteed attendance the first two weeks of camp
    These programs are in demand and early registration is highly encouraged to ensure the camp of your choice.  A sixth camp location has been added this year, and we still anticipate that some sites will reach capacity early and close to new enrollees.  Because of the high volume of registrations we received, it can take a few months to process through all of them, and we appreciate your early submission.  Your registration fee and deposit will be charged upon approval of your registration contract.  We offer the incentive of a reduced registration fee in the hopes that you will submit your information early, and we thank you for your patience.  Our team continues to work diligently to process them as quickly as possible.
    Each K-8 site will accept a maximum of 230 registration contracts, and will close to new registrants upon reaching this amount.
        Late Registration

    The registration deadline for 'Sun'sational Summer camp is April 30th.  Any contracts submitted after April 30th will be reviewed for approval only when all contracts received through April 30th have been reviewed and approved.  Attendance at summer camp will start with Week 3 or later, depending on the date of late registration. Once a registration period has been invoiced (i.e., Weeks 1 & 2), new contracts will not be approved for that period. You will be notified of your start date upon contract approval via a confirmation email. Your requested start date is subject to change during the approval process.  Some days may not be available if a site and/or a field trip has reached capacity.
