Summer Day Camp

In our Summer Day Camp, campers spend a fun-filled summer taking field trips to local destinations such as Amazement Square, FunQuest, and Rise Up. Kids can swim or just float around to cool off each week in a nearby swimming pool. In addition, children will enjoy creating crafts, gym activities, 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 are supervised by our trained staff. 
The camp runs Monday through Friday, June 10-August 2, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (Closed Thursday, July 4, and Friday, July 5, for Independence Day.) The full program costs $2,000, with activities and field trips included. The weekly rate is $300 per week. The application fee ($25, non-refundable) and the initial, non-refundable prepayment of $225 per child will secure your child's/children's place(s) in Summer Day Camp. The remaining balance may be paid in three installments over the course of the spring, with the first installment due on June 1, or in full prior to the start of camp on June 10.
