Learning and fun go hand-in-hand at Summer Place, where campers follow a daily schedule that includes a half-day of enrichment courses and a half-day of sports or recreational activities. First- through fourth-graders participate in two enrichment classes in the morning and three recreational activities in the afternoon (first-and second-grade campers opting for early dismissal take only two recreational activities in the afternoon). Fifth- through ninth-graders follow a schedule of three recreational activities in the morning and two enrichment courses in the afternoon. The entire camp gathers together for opening and closing activities and at lunch. At all times throughout the day, children are under the careful direction and supervision of the Summer Place staff.
One of the most important features of Summer Place is that campers design their own schedules, selecting from the wide range of choices offered for each course period. The schedule of courses is provided on the course worksheets. Please refer to the worksheet for the appropriate session when completing the registration form.
Special note: The grade-level designation for each course refers to the grade the child will enter in the fall of 2018.
Sports and recreational activities—along with arrival and dismissal—will take place at Watkinson School, located adjacent to the University. Watkinson offers Summer Place a modern sports center, expansive playing fields, fitness room, dance studio, and state-of-the-art amphitheater.
