CAMPS FOR ALL AGES!

We are pleased to offer summer camps for ages 2 year old - 6th grade this summer!

Camp CREATE (Age 2 - rising Kindergarten)

For children age 2 by September 1, 2019, through entering Kindergarten.

Camp CREATE follows a similar rhythm as our school year. The educational program follows weekly themes that are play-based and developmentally appropriate for each age group. We participate in art, music, indoor and outdoor play, water play, and many other stimulating activities. Our daily schedule prepares children for their future grade level, slowly transitioning their schedules to reflect that of their upcoming school year.
 
You must register for a minimum of two sessions. If you have enrolled at St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School as a Full Year student for the 2019-2020 school year, you are automatically registered for all sessions of Camp CREATE 2019 (same days and times requested for the school year) and do NOT need to enroll separately for summer.

Students enrolled at St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School for 2019-2020 will have priority placement in our Camp CREATE program.  Schedule changes are not permitted.
