Summer Camp

 Summer Camp & COVID-19

To Our Beloved Camp Community,

It is with a heavy heart that I write to share our decision regarding in-person summer programs for the 2020 season. In keeping with current federal, state, and local regulations, and after deliberation and thoughtful discussions with medical and camp professionals around the world (as well as our own Administrative Team), we have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person summer programs on SRV’s campus for 2020.

We have no higher priority than the health and safety of The School in Rose Valley community, which includes our summer community. Please know that this decision was not made lightly and we will very much miss your presence on our campus this summer.

Even though we will not offer in-person programs, we will offer a variety of fun, engaging and enriching virtual programs and activities this summer!  Virtual activities will include: cooking classes, magic lessons, drama, music and  movement, STEM – and that’s just to name a few!  Please stay tuned for additional information.  On June 1st, we will send a follow up email with details (including prices, times and dates) for our summer virtual camps.  That email will also include information pertaining to refunds should you choose not to participate in our virtual camp.
 
Again, this was not an easy decision to reach.  However, we want to make sure that we keep the health and well being of our campers, their families and our staff as our number one priority.  
If you have any questions or need additional information, feel free to contact me directly (stewart@theschoolinrosevalley.org).  
Sincerely,
Stewart Calloway
Director of Auxiliary Programs
The School in Rose Valley

A Summer Filled with Choices

Bring your children to our beautiful wooded campus where their summer days will be filled with fun and adventure! Your children will choose from many enriching and fun activities, stretching their imaginations and making new friends in our safe, caring environment. We invite you to join us at SRV Summer Camp where summer is filled with choices, laughter and creativity.

We have four programs for children from ages 3 to 15 years old. Campers are grouped by age, mixing boys and girls who are within a few years of each other. Each group has their own counselors and “home base” location on campus.

Camp runs for seven weeks from June 22 – August 14, 2020. Campers can come by the week or for all seven. The eighth week is our “Free to Be” week. This final week of camp features a more relaxed structure.

Program Highlights

  • Every child has swimming lessons daily in our on-site saltwater swimming complex.
  • Each week of camp has a unique theme that offers children and counselors the opportunity to learn and celebrate something new together.
  • Campers will enjoy healthful snacks in the morning.
  • We start each week with a camp-wide Monday morning meeting and end the week with a Friday Celebration where there are songs, skits, jokes and/or dances, followed by all-natural popsicles and mixed age theme-related activities.
  • There are two evening variety shows; one for the younger campers and one for the older campers.
