It’s time to start planning all of that endless summer fun we’re so been looking forward to, and our camp guide is full of some of our favorites!

The Summit Country Day School Summer Camp

May 31st - August 5th

The all-day programs at The Summit are fresh and packed full of fun for all children, preschool through grade 8.

The Traditional Day Camp services ages 3-6 for nine weeks of summer (Monday-Friday 9a-3p) with each week hosting a theme to center the crafts and games. Your children will be all smiles as they explore the arts, take cooking lessons, get outdoors, and unplug. Extended Day will be offered beginning at 8 am and again after camp, from 3-4 pm.

“My youngest loves the traditional day camp with the weekly themes. My middle child enjoys robotics and STEM camps and there are plenty to choose from to keep him busy. This year my high school kid will take the ACT prep college essay class to be ready for his college applications. The Summit has exceptional programs that my children really enjoy and at a good value compared to other summer programs.” – Beth, camp parent

Open to campers age 3 through high school.

Programming is available for high school students both for school credit and as an opportunity to explore a subject.

Summer Camp Resources

First comes camp registration and then comes packing camp lunches!

We hope to ease some of that burden by providing you some ideas. Each idea meets a different need and will provide you with some different ideas of lunches to pack.

Overnight camp feels like a rite of passage.

After hearing rave reviews about the YMCA Camp Kern experience, I decided to take a risk and let go of control (because, yes, that is what it felt like to me) for one week out of the summer and see what would happen.
