Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the camp located?
Summer Cove is located at 9001 Braddock Road Suite 111 in Springfield Virginia. We sub-lease this building from GW Community School.
What are the times of the camps?
Camp runs from 9:30 AM - 3:30 PM Monday - Friday. Drop-off begins at 9:00 AM.
Do you offer before care?
Yes! Before Care is available starting at 8:00 AM for $10/child/day. Payments are processed at the end of the week.
Do you offer aftercare?
Yes! Aftercare is available from 3:45 - 5:00 PM for $15/child/day. All children not picked up by 3:45 PM are considered to be in aftercare.
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 2019 Camps page under the Camp Information tab.
Do you offer a discount?
We offer a discount of $25 per camper to families enrolling 2 or more children in the same week of camp. For example, if you have a son and a daughter who are both attending during week 3, you would save $50 in total for that week.
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?
Wonderful! Please allow 48 hours for your registration to be processed. Once processed, you will be sent an invoice from a platform called Wave. Please review the invoice amount and complete payment online.
I signed my child up, but I need to cancel.
If for any reason you need to withdraw from a camp after you have made the payment, you will receive 50% of the 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 1 full 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 15th - July 19th), registration is open for that week until the Monday prior (July 8th).
