Can you believe that it’s already time to be thinking about your child’s summer break? To help you out, here is the plan for our School-Age Summer Camp Program. Summer Camp includes children who have completed kindergarten up to age 12. They will be downstairs in the academy afterschool building (also known as the church youth building). Behind the building is a fenced-in basketball court, as well as a playground facility designed for school-age children, and open play space.
Dates: June 4 – August 24. The last week is optional for parents.
Time: 6:30 am – 6:00 pm. Morning drop-off is at the Child Development Center cafeteria until 8:05.
Tuition: $120.00 per week due in advance on Friday for the following week. This year we have included the activity fee in the tuition. All field trips, admission fees and transportation, as well as curriculum, and arts & crafts supplies have been included in the weekly tuition.
Enrollment Fee: $15 for early registration by May 16th; $30 after May 16th . Summer Camp will operate under the auspices of Neighbors Grove Christian Academy.
Part Time Enrollment must be for at least 3 days a week ($30 per day).
Discounts apply to full-time students only. Families with a 2nd child in summer camp will receive a $25 discount on the 2nd child. Or, if you have a full-time child in daycare, you will receive a $25 discount on your full-time student in summer camp.
Vacation Week: Each family may choose one “free” week when the child will not be present and you will not be responsible for payment. The week must be indicated on a form in the office. Parents are responsible for tuition for all other weeks.
Meals & Snacks: Children may eat the cafeteria breakfast (if they arrive by 7:50) and lunch, at no additional charge. Or, they may bring their own food. If they want to eat the cafeteria lunch, it must be ordered by 9:30 am. A mid-morning and afternoon snack will be provided. Children may also bring their own snacks. Caffeinated drinks and snacks with a high sugar content are not allowed.
Referral Incentive: If you refer a new family to summer camp, you and the new family will receive a $30 credit on the 2nd week of tuition. The new family must inform the office of the referral when they enroll.
Field Trips and Activities Include Places Such As:
YMCA Splash Pad
North Asheboro Park for play & picnic
Carolina Camel Rides
Hagan Stone Park
Mill Creek Orchard
Kersey Valley Maze
Millis Health Education Center
Domino’s Make-Your-Own Pizza Tour
Dan Nicholas Park
Plus: On-site activities such as computer lab time and planned crafts each week. Water days, bike days, and other activities will be mixed in throughout the summer. Children will have access to art supplies daily.
We encourage you to sign up early to make sure there is a place for your child. If the child-to-teacher ratio and/or room capacity is full for one teacher, we will start a waiting list to see if we have enough students for a second group.
Thank you for the privilege of serving you and your children.
