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 5 – August 25. 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: $105.00 per week due in advance on Friday for the following week.
Activity Fee: $12.00 per week which includes all field trips and all on-site extracurricular activities. This may be paid in advance weekly with the tuition or in lump sums to cover part or all of the summer. There are at least two field trips planned for each week.
Enrollment Fee: $15 for early registration by May 15th; $30 after May 15th . Summer Camp will operate under the auspices of Neighbors Grove Christian Academy. Part Time Enrollment must be for at least 3 days a week ($24 per day). The activity fee will be prorated according to the activities planned on the days the child will be in attendance and must be paid for in advance with the tuition. Due to part time families not paying as much in activity fees throughout the summer, there will be a one-time $15 curriculum/supplies fee.
Discounts apply to full-time students only. Families with a 2nd child in summer camp will receive a $20 discount on the 2nd child. Or, if you have a full-time child in daycare, you will receive a $20 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. However, if a child is absent an entire week, the activity fee does not need to be paid for that week.
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:
Strawberry Patch • YMCA Splash Pad • Replica Reptiles •Bowling • North Asheboro Park for play & picnic
Roller skating • Butterfly Farm Lady’s Visit • Hagan Stone Park • Mill Creek Orchard • Kidz Bounce
Millis Health Education Center • Lowes Food Tour • Dan Nicholas Park
Plus: On-site activities such as weekly music fun, 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.
