Welcome to La Jolla Country Day School’s summer programs serving children locally from San Diego as well as those visiting from out of state or out of the country. We are excited that you are spending some (or all!) of your summer with us. If you’re returning from last year, welcome back and thank you for choosing us again!
We are excited to offer some wonderful opportunities and many new experiences for summer 2018. Students will have numerous options, so every week they can discover something new. Spend the entire day with us or select their experiences a la carte.
From theater to innovation and tech, to art and rock climbing, there are options for every age. Imagine going behind the scenes of the San Diego Zoo, kayaking in La Jolla Cove, or getting an inside tour of the world of animation at Disneyland. These are just a few experiences awaiting you at La Jolla Country Day School this summer.
To learn more about these or any of our other summer experiences, please see the course descriptions below. If you have any questions, please contact Summer Programs director Jessica Abbondanzio at email@example.com.
Take a morning or afternoon class or stay for a full day of fun! Most classes are one week long. The few multi-week courses in our program are noted in the dates section below the course description.
Morning classes run from 9 a.m.–12 p.m. Drop-off for these classes begins at 8:30 a.m. Afternoon classes run from 12:30–3:30 p.m. If your child is staying with us for the morning and the afternoon, they will be able to enjoy a supervised group lunch with their new friends.
Extended Day “Ultimate Camp Experience”
Need to come earlier than 8:30 a.m. or stay later than 3:30 p.m.? No problem! Students can come as early as 7:30 a.m. and stay as late as 5:30 p.m. This time will be filled with additional camp activities such as crafts, games and playtime. This Extended Day experience is a flat $11-per-hour fee. Families using this service will simply be billed at the end of the week.
Lunch (12–12:30 p.m.)
Students enrolled for full days of fun will have a lunch break from 12–12:30 p.m. Lunch is not provided, but parents may order lunches for students from our Corner Bakery delivery service. Purchase the “Lunch Delivery Package” during registration, and you will be sent a menu of choices for your week of camp. Corner Bakery delivery service is only available to K–12 students (pre-K students are asked to bring a lunch for early childhood programs). Students may also bring their own lunches. Please clearly mark names on lunch containers. If students need to bring a sack lunch for a field trip program, please pack it in a disposable container.
Registration will be completed online at summerljcds.campbrainregistration.com. Students should enroll in classes for the grade level they will be entering in the fall. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Space in a class is only reserved upon receipt of full payment. Classes will run only if there is adequate enrollment. If the minimum class size has not been met by the Wednesday before class starts, the class will be canceled and a full refund will be given to anyone enrolled. Please register early and spread the word about your favorite classes!
If you are enrolling an international student, students should be proficient in English (spoken language, and for some classes reading and writing) in order to fully benefit from the class. Students may be advised to withdraw or switch classes if they do not meet proficiency standards.
To receive a 10 percent early-bird discount, please register for classes by Friday, April 13.
