Yes. Create an online account for the summer program registration site. Then add each child to the main account. Families can be registered together once the account is created. Please complete an online registration for each camper you wish to enroll.
Financial assistance is available for all programs, except sports camps, for families enrolled full-time at La Jolla Country Day School in fall 2019. Families must complete the online registration and select the financial assistance option for payment.
Yes. A refund of 100% of the tuition for any class can be obtained before Monday, May 18. A 75% refund will be made for refund requests made no later than two weeks before the start of a class. To ensure proper staffing and supplies, refunds after that point in time cannot be offered.
Due to the recent measles outbreaks, LJCDS is requiring proof of immunizations for all children attending summer camp. Please submit your child’s yellow California immunization card or official record with their doctor’s signature and dates of immunizations.
Yes. All students taking prescription medications during summer program hours will need to have a Prescription Medication Administration Release Formfilled out in its entirety before the start of classes. No medication will be allowed or given at school until this form is submitted even if the medication was given at school the previous year. Academic school year medications will not transfer over.
Middle School and Lower School students who need to take medication at school must have a parent/guardian deliver the medication to the school nurse (Jan Capon) in the original bottle together with the signed form above. Upper School students are permitted to deliver the medication and signed form to the nurse themselves.
Students are not allowed to carry any medications (except with permission from a parent/guardian and the school nurse).
Morning sessions start promptly at 8 a.m. Students may be dropped off at their classrooms as early as 7:30 a.m.
Following the afternoon session, we offer an Extended Day service until 5:30 p.m. The afternoon extended day is open to kindergarteners–Grade 8 students attending an afternoon summer camp session. This time will be filled with additional camp activities such as crafts, games and playtime. This Extended Day experience is $12/hour for drop-ins. Families using this service will simply be billed at the end of the week. If you know ahead of time that you will need your child to stay for Extended Day, we encourage you to sign-up when you register for camp to receive our discounted rate of $100 for the whole week (12.5 hours of Extended Day).
Please indicate your child’s food allergy on the application form. If your child’s allergies are airborne or otherwise severe, we can provide a separate lunch table. Bring any and all emergency medications in the original container before the start of the camp in a labeled bag with the allergy action form. Parents/guardians are required to bring the medication to the nurse’s office. Please do not send medication in your child’s bag.
Snack is provided at the Early Childhood Summer Program and in some classes. All of our snacks are peanut and tree-nut free. If your child has an allergy or food sensitivity besides nut allergies, we are happy to work with you to make reasonable accommodations for your child.
No matter how many precautions we take, accidents can happen. During our summer program, we have a registered nurse and athletic trainer on campus from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition, our counselors are trained in CPR and first-aid. Counselors in camp programs that travel off-campus for field trips are also trained in the use of EpiPen and medication administration. All serious injuries are directed immediately to the camp nurse. The nurse will triage incidents and arrange for emergency transport, if necessary.
LJCDS will call parents/guardians or emergency contacts as soon as possible using all the phone numbers that we have on file. All families must provide the camp with a local phone number in the event of an emergency.
We welcome families to visit campus before the start of their summer program. We request that families schedule an appointment by contacting our summer programs office at 858-453-3440 x333 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Geometry offers one semester and full-year academic credit, including grades and comments. If you do not attend La Jolla Country Day School, your school counselor must approve of the summer school course to receive credit.
