SUMMER CAMP 2016
Girls Inc. (formerly Girls Club) is pleased to announce our 2016 summer camp, in partnership with the Boys Leadership Alliance. On our co-ed campuses, girls and boys participate in co-ed programs that are gender specific and age appropriate.
This year, campers will be challenged to think critically, ask questions and explore!
Weekly field trips, guest speakers, the Girls Inc. Science Fair, and the national Girls Inc. Identity programs are just a taste of what awaits your child.
Our goal is to provide a safe and exciting camp, while helping your child maintain the know-ledge learned from the school year. We offer a structured, yet fun environment where “random dancing” and talent shows are the norm!
Upon registration, the following MUST be submitted or the application will not be processed:
- Two forms of I.D. per child (Birth Certificate [REQUIRED] & another form of I.D.: SS Card, Military ID, Ident-A-Kid, etc.)
- Physical Record (Most Current)
- Immunization Records (Most Current)
Tuition for 6 Weeks or More
Tuition for summer camp is $65 per week. This fee must be paid every Friday for the following week. This fee is refundable if paid in advance, Check, money order, cash and credit card are all accepted. A daily snack is included in the fee. Free USDA breakfast and lunch is also provided daily.
In addition to the registration and weekly fees, there is a non-refundable $150 activity fee which covers the cost of weekly field trips, with the exception of the four signature field trips, which have separate fees. This fee also includes programming supplies purchased throughout the summer.
Tuition for 5 Weeks or Less
Tuition for summer camp is $90 per week if your child attends 5 weeks or less. There is no field trip/weekly activity fee as the cost is absorbed in the weekly fee. However, if attending during a signature field trip week, the cost of that trip must be paid.
