FAQ

What is your camper to staff ratio?

With the younger campers (ages 3-5), it is 6:1. For the older campers, it is never more than 10:1.

How deep is the shallow end of the pool?

The shallow end of the pool is 3 feet deep. Little campers always wear floaters, their own or those which the camp provides. There is always a certified Lifeguard at the pool in addition to camp staff of at all times.

If my child wants to attend another week of camp that I have not signed up for, is it possible sign up at the last minute?

It is always best to sign up for all of the weeks that your child will be attending ahead of time. This is important so that we can staff according to campers needs. At the same time, we try to remain flexible. This summer we request that all on-going registrations and payments be made no later than the Wednesday prior to the up-coming session. This allows ample time for proper coverage and to ensure our supply needs are met.

Do campers have to be St. Michael’s students?

No, campers do not have to attend St. Michael’s during the school year. We welcome campers from far and wide. Traditionally  about 60% of our campers are non St.Michael’s students. It is our pleasure to welcome campers and create new friendships with children from all over the world.

When is my full tuition due?

Full payment is due on June 1st to take advantage of our early bird special rate. After that date, camps fees increase to their full rate. We now accept 3 payment options as follows- Paid in full, Deposit now and balance June 1st, or Deposit now and balance split on May 1st and June 1st. We accept Checks, Visa and/or MasterCard (American Express is not accepted at this time).

What is the Cancellation Policy?

Camps cancelled ten days before camp will incur a $50 service fee.  Camps cancelled less than ten days prior will incur a %50 fee.

COVID 19 update — our campus is closed but #SMSstaysconnected!

At this time, there are no known cases of COVID 19 in our SMS community. As Head of School Jim Heus wrote in a letter home to parents:

“In keeping with our nation’s efforts to maintain social distancing, and consistent with Governor Raimondo’s two-week suspension of public schools throughout the state, we will launch our plan for distance learning. We have planned, rehearsed and are ready to execute ‘virtual’ instruction on Monday, March 30th.”
