Summer Day Camp 2023

Searching for a place your child can spend those summer days? Look no further!
In our Summer Day Camp, campers spend a fun-filled summer taking field trips to local destinations such as Amazement Square, FunQuest, and the movies. Kids can swim or just float around to cool off each week in a nearby swimming pool. In addition, children will enjoy creating crafts, reading books, and playing outside. The James River Day School's Summer Day Camp provides childcare and activities for rising first graders through 12-year-olds. Each day, children need to bring lunch, morning and afternoon snacks, water, and/or water bottles. Children will be supervised by our certified staff. 
The camp runs Monday through Friday, June 12-August 11, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (Closed Monday, July 3, and Tuesday, July 4, for Independence Day.) The full 9-week program costs $1,500 with activities and field trips included. The application fee ($25, non-refundable) and the initial, non-refundable prepayment of $225 secure your child's place in Summer Day Camp. The remaining balance may be paid in full at the start of camp or billed in three installments over the course of the summer. 
If space is available, children may be signed up for selected weeks for $225 per week; this option also includes the activities and field trips planned for those particular weeks. (Our budget is planned according to expected attendance, so you will be billed if your child is scheduled to attend.) Contact Katrina Phillips at [email protected] for more information.
