All programs take place at or are based from La Jolla Country Day School. If the class activities occur off campus, the class will meet on campus at the posted start time and take campus transportation.
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.
We will have a curbside check-in in our Genesee Avenue parking lot for morning drop-off. During Monday’s check-in, parents will receive their child’s security code for pick-up. The adult picking up the student will need to have this code for us to be able to release the child. Upper School students are allowed to drive themselves and check themselves in and out.
Parents will be notified of room numbers and are encouraged to visit the classrooms to see what is happening this summer. For assistance locating rooms, you may check-in with summer staff on the first floor in the Jacobs Family Library/administration building.
Summer programs management will be officed in the first-floor library in the Jacobs Family Library/administration building but summer book check-out will not be available. There is plenty of seating and waiting area available to families. The second-floor library will not be open.
Financial assistance is available for academic enrichment classes only for families enrolled full-time at La Jolla Country Day School in the fall of 2019. Families must complete the online registration and select the financial assistance option for payment.
Yes. You will need to 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.
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 doctor’s signature and dates of immunizations.
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 epi-pens 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.
We will call parents 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.
Yes. All students taking prescription medications during summer school hours will need to have a Prescription Medication Administration Release Form filled out in its entirety prior to 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. School year medications will not transfer over.
Students that need to take medication at school must deliver the medication to the school nurse in the original bottle together with the signed form above. Students are not allowed to carry any medications (except with permission from a parent and the school nurse).
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. Please be sure to bring any and all emergency medications in the original container prior to the start of the camp in a labeled bag with the allergy action form. Parents are required to bring the medication to our nurse’s office. Please do not send medication in your child’s bag.
Snack is provided at 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.
