Weekday School Camps

We are excited to invite your child to join us for Weekday School Summer Camp! We have a variety of camps offered for rising three-year-olds through rising kindergartners.

Description of each camp, the dates of the sessions, the costs, and the eligible ages are found below. A “Current 2” is a child who is in a two-year-old class THIS YEAR, and who will be in a three-year-old class next year. A “Current 3” will be in a four-year-old class next year, and a “Current 4” will be in kindergarten next year. All camps meet from 9:00-12:30 each day.

When registering for camps, please pay special attention to the availability. Some camps have been filled by current students, and others are very close to capacity. If information on availability is not given with the description, multiple spaces are open. Camps will be offered to new students on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration forms and checks can be mailed or brought directly to the Weekday School office. On the registration form, you will find spaces to list multiple camp choices. Please list choices only if you are willing to accept them. In addition, please fill out a separate registration form for each camp session.
