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.
Does Summertimes have an update related to COVID-19?
On May 8, we announced that all in-person programs during the month of June (camp weeks of June 15-19, June 22-26, and June 29-July 2) are cancelled. Our June Summer Studies classes will either run on our Distance Learning platform, or they have been moved to the end of the summer. Please check the course's webpage for details. We are suspending registration for all camps until our next programming update at the beginning of June. Registration will remain open for all Summer Studies classes. We have trusted camp partners who will be operating virutal camps in June. If you are interested, please reach out to the Summer Programs Office
for additional information.
What age must my child be to attend Summertimes?
We offer Summertimes 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?
All deposits are non-refundable. Prior to two weeks before the start of your camper's session, you may request to withdraw a child from a program and all but the deposit will be refunded. Within two weeks of the start of your camper's session, 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.
