Frequently Asked Questions: 2021 Summer Camp Season

Does my child need to be enrolled at St. Michael’s in order to attend camp? Our camps are open to families across the globe. You do not need to be a student here at St. Michael’s.

What are the dates of the camp: We are thrilled to offer 7 weeks of camp this summer beginning on Monday, June 28th. We encourage families to register early as space will be limited due to restricted pod sizes.

Do I need to sign up for all 7 weeks? Families may sign up for one week or all  seven weeks camps.

What is the cost of camp? The typical weekly rate for our Morning Adventure, Junior Adventure and Sports camps is $275 (early bird discount rate). This rate will be honored as long as payment in full is received by May 1st.  Weekly rates for our specialty enrichment camps vary.

How long is camp? This year, we will be offering a half day of camp from approximately 9am – 1pm for all campers from age 3. To accommodate  required staggered arrival and dismissal times, some camps may start as early as 8:45 or end as late as 1pm. Families will be informed of their drop off/pick-up times at least a week prior to the start of camp. We will also be offering a full day  until 2:45pm for campers enrolled in our Junior Adventures and Sports Adventure programs. Children enrolled in our Morning Adventures program that are age 4 and 5 may choose to add on a 1:45pm dismissal or a 2:45pm dismissal in our childcare after camp program (CAC).

What ages can attend camp? We will offer camp to students as young as 3 years old (fully potty trained) up to children entering the 4th grade. We usually offer at least two weeks of camp for children in 5th – 8th grade including chess. Please check our pages for the most up to date offerings.*Please check back as we MAY be adding two weeks of camp for  2 year old’s!

How are age groups broken down? This year we are offering 3 – 4 different age groupings as follows:  a. 3 year olds and young 4’s,  b. 4/5 year olds,  c. children entering first – 4th Grade. We are also offering enrichment camps for our older campers including chess and lego robotics.

What is the ratio of counselor  to camper/how many campers in each group? For the 3 year old groups, there is limit of 10 campers with two counselors. For the older groups, typically there is a maximum of 15 campers with two counselors (government guidelines will dictate ratios for this summer which we will adhere to).

My child is 2.5 but potty trained, can they attend? We strictly adhere to our policy in order to maintain rations and meet regulations therefore only campers that are age 3 and fully potty trained may attend camp. *BUT, please check back as we  may be running a camp for 2 year olds this summer!

What do I need to pack for my child? Each day, campers should bring a nut-free lunch and snack, bathing suit/towel, sunblock, and filled reusable water bottle (we kindly ask that you LABEL everything as adults will not be permitted entry into the building). Younger children should pack a change of clothes including undergarments and socks.

What is St. Michael’s doing to keep our children safe at camp during this pandemic?  We have been working with the entire administrative team, maintenance department and school nurse to create a plan to keep our staff and camp families as safe as possilble. We have provided details on our new medical procedures and enhanced safety protocols. You may view these detailed documents by clicking on this link: Registration and Camp Policies.
