To register your child(ren) for any of the camps taking place on the Ellis campus during summer 2020, view Ellis camps by age or by date and fill out the form at the bottom of the page. Registration for visiting camps taking place at Ellis can be accessed here.
Registration is considered complete when payment has been received. Full payment is due by June 1.
Please call 412-266-8238 or email Jenna Hayes, Director of Summer Programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org to alert the Ellis Summer Camp staff of any absences, vacations, or transportation changes that may arise.
Please know that refrigeration is not available for packed lunches; however, campers will have access to a microwave.
A nut-free snack is provided mid-morning for all campers. If children stay for after-care, another snack is served around 3:30 p.m. There are no nuts of any kind in the snacks. If your child has other life-threatening allergies, please pack a snack and lunch for them daily and notify Jenna Hayes.
Water is available throughout the day. Campers are welcome to bring a water bottle if they wish, but please label it!
If your camper is a current Ellis student, we have her medical and immunization information on file. If any changes have arisen this year, please be sure to update your daughter’s Magnus profile before camp.
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 to our school nurse, Lynette MacLeod. Copies of the immunization form can be emailed to Lynette at email@example.com or mailed to the School: The Ellis School, Attn: Lynette MacLeod, 6425 Fifth Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15206.
Please note that we are prohibited by state law from allowing your camper to remain on campus without medical and immunization information.
On the first day of camp, all campers need to be checked in by a parent or guardian at the Ellis entrance.
On subsequent days of camp, Middle School campers may be dropped off in our front parking lot and may check themselves into their camp program. Campers under the age of 10 should continue to be accompanied by an adult for drop-off.
During pick-up, Middle School campers will wait to be picked up outside the entrance to the Upper School, and campers under the age of 10 will wait with a counselor outside the Lower School entrance.
The front gate will be locked at all times to ensure the safety of our campers. You may check in with security at the gate to request admittance at any time. Half-day campers can be picked up at the Benjamin R. Fisher Gallery entrance.
For after-care pick-up, please come to the Lower School lobby to sign your child out with a staff member.
