COVID Health and Safety Protocols
It will be a fun and safe summer this year!

We are readying the campus for a return to activities starting June 1. When Governor DeSantis announces Phase 2 procedures for camps and schools, we will incorporate those guidelines into our current action plan for health and safety procedures. Ahead of the open of camp, we will announce the specifics of that action plan here. Given the openness and size of our campuses, we feel confident we can meet screening and group size requirements for a safe summer.

Camp CREATE - June 1 - July 31, 2020

For children age 2 by September 1, 2020, 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 2020-2021 school year, you are automatically registered for all sessions of Camp CREATE 2020 (same days and times requested for the school year) and do NOT need to enroll separately for summer.

ATTENTION ST. MARK'S RISING KINDERGARTEN FAMILIES: The full year option is no longer available during enrollment. Therefore, please enroll for summer camp using the link below.

Students enrolled at St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School for 2020-2021 will have priority placement in our Camp CREATE program.  Schedule changes are not permitted.
