Summer Programs at The Ellis School provide experiences that enable young minds of all ages to make meaningful connections through collaboration, friendship, and community through a variety of daytime offerings. Campers will cultivate creative thinking and problem-solving skills as they engage in real-world, project-based learning packed full of summer FUN!
Coed Kid Camps for girls and boys ages 3 to 9 offer a summer of fun and learning for all. Half-day and full-day camp sessions are available!
At The Ellis School, the health and safety of our campers and summer program staff is our highest priority. To ensure the safety of everyone involved in our summer programs, all programs will follow Ellis’ COVID-19 health protocols. All camp participants will be asked to complete a health screening via the Magnus app each day prior to arriving on campus.
If Camp Is Canceled Due to COVID-19 After It Has Begun: If a program has begun and is in progress (i.e. mid-week) but must be canceled due to COVID-19, all registered families will receive a prorated refund for the days we cannot operate on campus.
If Camp Is Canceled Due to COVID-19 Before It Begins: If a program is canceled due to COVID-19 prior to its start, a full refund will be issued to all families registered for that program.
All summer camp offerings in 2021 are subject to minimum and maximum enrollment. In the event of a cancellation due to low enrollment, The Ellis School will notify registered families in advance and refund the entire program fee.
To maintain proper records and ensure the safety of our campers and staff, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us of any absences from half-day or full-day camps for ages 3-10. There are no credits or refunds due to illness or absence, including possible COVID-19 exposures or failure to meet Ellis’ COVID-19 health screening requirements.
Please respect our hardworking staff by ensuring timeliness at drop-off and pick-up. Regular camp arrival time is from 8:15–9:15 a.m. Regular dismissal time is from 12:00–12:15 p.m. for half-day camp sesssions and 3:00–3:15 p.m. for full-day camp sessions (with the exception of Performance by Design, which will dismiss from 4:00–4:15 p.m.). Participants will not be admitted before 8:15 a.m. and will only be admitted after passing the COVID-19 screening app.
For the safety of all children, parents and guardians are not permitted to visit campers during the camp day. If an emergency arises and you must contact your child(ren), please email us at email@example.com so we can immediately assist you.
If your camper is a current Ellis student, her medical and immunization information is already on file. If any changes or updates have arisen this year, please be sure to update your daughter’s Magnus profile before June 1, 2021.
If your camper is not a current Ellis student, you will need to complete the Summer Camp Health Form, which can be filled out online within the Ellis Summer Camp Registration Form. You will also need to provide a copy of your camper’s immunization form.
Please note that we are prohibited by state law from allowing your camper to remain on campus without current medical and immunization information on file. Participants will only be admitted after passing the COVID-19 screening app.
Beyond self-administered EpiPens and inhalers, staff may not dispense medications during camp. If medication must be taken during camp, arrangements must be made for an adult to come and dispense medication. For the well-being of all children, please do not use camp as a time to transition a camper off of medications.
Keep children home from camp when they are ill and/or pick them up if they become sick at camp. Campers must be 24 hours fever-free before they can return to camp (below 100 degrees Fahrenheit). Participants will only be admitted after passing the COVID-19 screening app.
Campers will not be admitted earlier than 8:15 a.m. Parents/guardians should walk their young child(ren) to the main gate but are not allowed on campus or inside any school buildings. Before-care is free and available for campers of all ages every day!
All full-day camps end at 3:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Parents/guardians of younger children should come to the main entrance and buzz the intercom to pick up their child(ren). Families can pre-register and pay for after-care during online camp registration should they need extended care. After-care for campers ages 3-10 runs daily from 3:15 to 5:45 p.m.
