Summer Camp Program Description & Enrollment Process
(children must have completed kindergarten to enroll in our summer camp program)
Our Summer Camp program runs throughout the summer Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Listed below is a brief description of our program. We are a State of Ohio licensed program and a complete program description can be found in our Parent Handbook.
As a mission of the church our program is partially financed by the church and the discounted tuition for all families is $ 150.00 weekly and includes all meals (breakfast, two snacks and lunch) and field trips – there are no additional fees. Minimum enrollment during the program is eight weeks. We do not offer daily rates; therefore, tuition is due each week of enrollment regardless of absent days or days we are closed. We close one day during the summer for the July 4th holiday.
At least one parent and the camper must schedule a tour; please allow a half hour for the visit. Call the director, Greg Windle, at (513) 324-2618 to schedule a tour.
As a non-religious educational program, we address both educational and recreational needs of children with field trips and activities structured within a themed based curriculum. We emphasize respect, responsibility, honesty, and caring through the natural course of events each day. Our activities such as field trips, class room and outdoor activities, and art activities are designed to help children develop new skills, make new friends, and most of all enjoy their summer break. Science, language, math and music skills are challenged through group times, friendly competition, and through various activities provided. Throughout the summer children prepare for a carnival and invite the preschool children to attend.
