  • 1. Choose your weeks

    Camp schedules by week can be found in the brochure on pgs. 9-14. 

    Sign up for one week of camp or come for the whole summer!

  • 2. Choose camps by grade level

    Camp descriptions are organized by grade level on pages 15-32 in the brochure. 

    Community Theatre Works is available for rising grades 5-12 (including boys!)

    Athletic camps for all grade levels can be found on pages 33-36 in the brochure.
  • 3. Choose camps by area of interest

    In the brochure, look for category icons next to the camp descriptions to find camps that suit your interests. 

    IMPORTANT: Similar camps offered during multiple weeks will be different each week. For example, the "Canvas Creations" camp offered during the red and the blue weeks will create different projects. For these camps, feel free to sign up for one or both!
  • All-day Summer Cool option

    We have all-day programming for all girls in rising grades 1-8 each day, each week of Summer Cool.   

    Students have the option to register for camp choices during each session of the day, for the entire day. This allows for students to be engaged in focused activities from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. for all six weeks of Summer Cool.

    A supervised lunchtime and short afternoon outdoor recess will allow campers to get outside for some fresh air, enhancing everyone's experience by engaging campers more fully.

    For those who are asking about Dasher Downtime, our expanded camps cover the whole day across rising grades 1-8, and are intentionally priced so that participating in a session of camp is less than, or equal to the cost of five days of Dasher Downtime from the past several years.
