Dates & Rates
We enroll by session – here’s why!
As you investigate our dates and rates, you will find that we enroll by session rather than week-by-week. Families choose a session (Session 1, Session 2, or both) and then choose a set day combination within that session. We offer 2, 3, 4, and 5 day a week options.
We believe that camp is so much more than just activities. Camp is about being supported and encouraged to try new things. Camp is about being part of a group, developing a team spirit, and having the chance to lead. Creating a special place to belong takes more than just a few days, and the family feel of camp cannot happen when there are new campers coming and going throughout the summer. Our sessions are an integral part of the quality experiences that we provide for children and the reason that so many campers return from one summer to the next.

For your convenience, we have also answered some of the most commonly asked questions below.
New family enrollment begins online at 9 AM on January 20th. Our small group sizes mean that space is limited. We encourage families to make their summer plans early. While applying early does not guarantee your first choice of sessions, days, or grouping, doing so increases the chances that your first choice will be available.
Families who pay in full when submitting their application by February 28th will receive our Super Rate if that is selected online.
Families who apply with a deposit before May 1st and pay the remainder of their balance before the payment deadline will receive our Early Bird Rate.
Families who apply after May 1st, or who do not submit payment before the payment deadline, will receive our regular rate.
For families who choose not to pay in full with their application, there is a $300 deposit for each camper and for each session applied for. This deposit is not an additional fee and will be applied toward your final balance. This deposit is charged when the application is submitted, but will be refunded if the space requested is not available.
All families can also receive a full refund for any reason should they withdraw before the deadlines. This refund will include any deposits and fees already paid. The deadline for new families to withdraw is May 1st. We have intentionally selected this date to provide you with the assurance that you can visit us at Open House before making a final decision.
Additionally, your deposit will be refunded if we don’t have the space to enroll your child in the day combination you select or in one that works for your family’s schedule.
A sibling enrolling from the same family receives a discount of approximately 5%. An additional sibling receives a discount of approximately 10%. Additional siblings are eligible for further discounts. Discounts will not be applied to your account until after your enrollment has been confirmed. If you choose to pay your fees in full with your application, the sibling discount amount will be refunded to your card when your enrollment is confirmed.
Family vacations or school conflicts of one calendar week can be accommodated. You can choose to miss one week in each session by simply marking it on your application or notifying us before May 1st. We can pro-rate your fees accordingly. If you choose not to pro-rate, you will receive our 3% discount for full session enrollments. This discount is already reflected in the published rates.
A payment plan option is available to all of our camp families – click here to learn more.
There is space on the application to request one friend to be placed with your camper. Prior to May 1st, requests will be honored when placing campers in their groups. Campers entering the 1st – 7th grades should request a friend of the same gender.
Some private schools or preschools finish up during the first week of Session One. Refer to the FAQ above on how to remove a week from your Session One enrollment.
SVUSD schools resume classes during the final week of Session Two. Refer to the FAQ above on how to remove a week from your Session Two enrollment.
OPUSD schools resume classes during the third week of Session Two. OPUSD families who enroll in Session One may request to extend their enrollment into the first two weeks of Session Two (July 22 – August 2). To add your camper(s) to our 2-week extension request list, simply fill out a 2-week extension request form through our online application portal.
