Answers to Common Questions

"What other programs do you offer?"

- We only offer summer day camps (we do not offer birthday parties, after school programs, field trips, etc).

"Tell me about extended care?"

- Extended care is available from 8-9 am, and 3-6 pm.  The cost is $8/h (ex: $40/wk for one hour per day).

- Early drop off from 8-9 am is quiet reading and play time.

- Late pick up from 3-6 pm has daily group activities and games, as well as free play.  It is combined with St Leo's Extended Care Program.

"By when should I purchase extended care?"

- Extended care must be purchased at least one week before camp for your spot to be guaranteed.  We are sometimes able to accommodate late requests as well.

- If you would like to purchase custom hours, please make a special request by contacting us via email.

       — Such purchases will be at the rate of $12 per hour, per child.

"How long should I expect to wait for a response?"

Camp Rules & Information


Please review this checklist in order to prepare for camp:

√ Camp runs 9am - 3:00pm. Extended care is available before and after (see "Common Questions" above).

√ Campers must be walked in/out by their parent or guardian each day.  There is a mandatory sign-in/sign-out sheet.

√ Each camper must bring a cold lunch, water bottle, and a book daily (for reading times). Sunscreen is recommended.

√ We spend significant time outdoors.  Although there is shade, we encourage you to apply sunscreen before camp.

√ The Science Factory will provide 1 snack (for students with food allergies, we ask that they provide their own snack for safety).

√ Camp shirts are required daily.  One shirt is included with your first week purchased, and additional shirts are $10 (must order in advance).

Superstars - Leadership Program*


For students ages 11-13, we offer a leadership program!

* Note: Superstars are not our assistant teachers.  We hire adults for all teaching positions.

√ Runs only during "proton" and "atom" weeks.

√ Superstars help set up experiments, act as role models for small groups of younger students, and can even help teachers demonstrate activities.

√ Superstars still participate in all the activities for the week, so they can have fun along with the younger students as they are learning important leadership skills.

√ Superstars receive a $50 discount off the weekly price as a thank you for helping out.


*Superstars are welcome to join during "Proton"and "Atom" weeks at a discounted rate. These students get to participate, but also act as role models and leaders for younger students. Visit FAQ for more info.
