Our Extended Day program offers families the option of having their campers with us at camp for a longer day to accommodate their schedules. We offer two different options within our Extended Day programming: Our traditional Extended Day
is a less structured time for all ages where kids can spend time with children from other camper groups engaging in various low-key activities. Our Extended DEILAB
offers campers in grades K-6 a more structured indoor option of Lego-based design and build projects. You can learn more about DEILAB here: DEILAB
During morning Extended day, campers typically engage in art activities or board games. For the afternoon, many campers like to relax after their very busy, structured day at camp. For our traditional Extended Day each afternoon, campers have a snack, then choose to go swimming, play cards, do simple Arts & Crafts activities (i.e. gimp, coloring, etc), or play a more active game on the field. Some children choose to spend this time reading a book, building Legos, or simply talking with friends. For Extended DEILAB each day, kids will have a snack, and then jump right into the structured building and design challenges. There will be a progression through the course of the week that will allow campers to experience success and failures in the design process, culminating in some cool challenges and competitions. Because of the structured nature of Extended DEILAB, it is best for campers to be picked up as close to 6:00 as possible to allow them the opportunity to experience the full programming.
Although the DEILAB staff will be altering the programming from week-to-week, we suggest that campers who will be registered for several weeks of Extended Day alternate between our traditional Extended Day and Extended DEILAB.
Morning Extended Day runs from 7:15 a.m. - 8:15 a.m., and afternoon Extended Day runs from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. For staffing purposes, campers must be registered for Extended Day on a weekly basis, and we require two-weeks notice of any changes or cancellations of Extended Day registration. We will not offer a refund for cancellations of Extended Day if the request is made with less than two-weeks notice.
Campers can be dropped off at any time during morning Extended Day and picked up any time prior to 6:00 p.m. during afternoon Extended Day (see the suggestion above regarding Extended DEILAB pick-up). Our Parent Handbook outlines more of the procedural details of the program.
