Registration for Summer 2013 begins April 1st, 2013
Welcome to the 2013 Summer Fun Day Camp at Benedictine University!
Boys and girls ages 5-13 are invited to spend a fun-filled summer with us. Our program is designed to make sure each camper has lots of fun every day of the week by participating in a variety of interesting indoor and outdoor activities.
Your child will enjoy outdoor field activities such as soccer, relay races, sand volleyball, tug-o-war, water activities and fishing at Lake St. Benedict.
Indoors, kids will have time for computers, reading, movies, arts/crafts and board games.
This year, we will also be incorporating a few hours per week of academic-based activities. This will be done in a very relaxed, fun format and supervised by state board certified teachers!
Our camper-to-staff ratio is 10:1. Our main goal is to provide a fun-filled, safe place for each and every camper.
Pick-up/drop-off location is at the Coal Ben, right next to the parking garage.
The weekly fee is $185 ($148 for Session 5). There is a second child discount of $10 per session. Camp runs from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Full session price will be charged regardless of whether child(ren) will attend all day. Children should be dropped off no later than 9:00 a.m. and picked up no later than 5:30 p.m.
Guardians will be charged $1 per minute for any late pick-ups.
The Summer Fun Day Camp qualifies for a U.S. Income Tax childcare deduction.
To receive a full refund (minus $20 deposit), cancellations must be made by 4:00 p.m. the Thursday prior to the session. NO refunds will be issued for later cancellations. Cancellations can be made in person, by phone or e-mail.
For protection and easy identification, campers are REQUIRED to wear their official camp T-shirt every day. Extra T-shirts can be purchased for $10 each.
Campers should bring a snack, water bottle, swimsuit, towel and backpack each day.
Please dress your child appropriately for the weather; gym shoes are required. All items should be labeled and carried in a small tote bag/backpack.
Lunch is provided each day in the University’s cafeteria. Campers may bring a healthy snack and a full water bottle is encouraged.
It is not necessary for a camper to bring any other items to camp. Other personal items brought for open recreation use (books, balls, gloves, etc.) are permitted, but these items will only be allowed during open recreation times and must be stored otherwise. All items should be marked with the camper’s name.
Campers will be responsible for their own items. Electronic devices such as cameras, mp3 players or video game players are not allowed at camp. Any items which the Camp Director deems to be potentially dangerous, harmful or problematic are not allowed.
