What is the price of each camp?
Prices vary depending on the type of camp in which you are enrolling your child. Prices can be found right beside the camp's description on the 2020 Camps page under the Camp Information tab.
Do you offer a discount?
We offer a 10% discount of your total cost if you have more than one child attending camp in one given week. This will be processed after your checkout and will come through within 48 hours. Additionally, we waive registration fee for families who are registering more than one child. So, if you have multiple children attending camp, you will only be charged one registration fee of $30.
What is the average camp size?
Camp sizes range from 5 - 20 campers depending on the camp. Our goal is to keep our camps small in order to engage individual campers more frequently. However, the entire camp does spend time together throughout the day during breaks and lunch.
Is lunch provided?
No, Summer Cove does not provide lunch for campers. Please send your child to camp each day with a lunch and snacks as we take a handful of breaks throughout the day and stop for lunch from 12:00 - 1:00 PM.
I just registered my child online, what now?
The last step is that we will send you a one-time Registration Fee of $30. After that, you are all set!
I signed my child up, but I need to cancel.
If for any reason you need to withdraw from a camp at least one month in advance, you will receive 80% of the camp fee back (not including the $30 registration fee). If you withdraw your child after that, you will receive 50% of your camp fee back (not including the $30 registration fee).
When is the deadline to register?
Parents/Guardians are able to register their child for camp by Wednesday of the week prior to the start of the desired camp. For example, if you are trying to register for a camp that is during Week Three (July 6th - July 10th, registration is open for that week until Wednesday, July 1st.
