How can I register?
Summertimes has an online application—click on “Camp Registration” at the top of the page to get started! You may register for a camp session up until 12:00 p.m. on the Friday before the start of the next week’s session. Registration closes at 12:00 p.m. each Friday for the following week.
Is Summertimes running camps and classes in light of COVID-19?
Yes! On June 8, we announced our limited slate of in-person camps and classes. Please explore our Programs page
for details. If you have questions related to how Summertimes is complying with federal, state, and local guidelines related to COVID-19, please visit our COVID-19 page
What age must my child be to attend Summertimes?
We offer Junior Day Camp for rising preschoolers (ages 3 and 4). Otherwise, all campers must be at least 5 years old at the time of the camp session to attend.
What is your refund policy?
If you registered your child for a camp or class prior to June 8, you may cancel your registration and receive a full refund if you notify the Summer Programs Office
no later than June 15. After June 15, all registration fees are non-refundable. Summertimes does not allow make-up days or prorate for any absence from a program, including illness, dismissal, or other separation from the Summertimes program. Should your family have health concerns related to COVID-19, please contact the Summer Programs Office
Upon request by a parent or guardian, Summertimes may allow a camper to switch to a different program session in its discretion and depending on availability.
Do you offer extended care?
In order to comply with CDC guidelines related to COVID-19, we are unable to offer Morning Care or Extended Day for Summer 2020.
Do you offer transportation between the SSSAS campuses?
Due to our limited camps and classes for Summer 2020, and in order to comply with CDC guidelines related to COVID-19, we will not be offering shuttle service between the Lower School and Upper School campuses. If you have campers enrolled in camps at both campuses during the same week, we suggest you drop your camper attending the Lower School Campus first, and pick up your camper at the Upper School Campus first.
Do you provide lunch?
You may order lunch for your camper on a weekly basis from our partner, Fairfax Food Services. For lunch program details, please visit the Lunch and Snacks section of our Parent Guide
Campers may always bring a bagged, insulated lunch. All campers attending a field trip-based camp should bring a bagged lunch.
Is Summertimes nut-free?
No, our programs and SSSAS campuses are not nut-free. Please contact the Summer Programs Office
with any questions or concerns.
What medical forms do you require?
Please see our Registration page
for detailed information about required medical forms.
Do you offer financial assistance?
For for-credit Summer Studies courses, financial assistance may be available to SSSAS students who receive financial aid during the regular school year. A written request for aid is required. We currently do not offer financial assistance for camp programs.
