Creating Scholars, Nurturing Spirituality & Embracing Diversity in Charlotte's Center City.

At Trinity Episcopal School, we are offering six weeks of fantastic camps packed with new experiences and exciting, hands-on learning. We welcome rising K-8 students (ages 5-14) to experience these full- and half-day camps.

What makes Wildcat Summer Camp stand out?

  • Our unique proximity to Uptown Charlotte
  • Our daily adventures and field trips to apply our learning outside of the classroom and in Charlotte’s Center City

While the core values of Trinity link each camp, the programs are designed to offer unique experiences for each week. New adventures have been added to expand and enrich the experience for returning Wildcat campers. Whether you’re passionate about the arts, sports, geography, technology, math or being green, your camper will grow at Wildcat Summer Camp 2018!

At Trinity, we are dedicated to nurturing the whole student: mind, body and spirit. Whether gaining an understanding of hunger through our partnership with Friendship Trays or experiencing the beauty of the Queen City during an “Artists in Action” art walk, we are fully invested in honoring Trinity’s mission to create scholars, nurture spirituality and embrace diversity in Charlotte’s Center City. Trinity’s Honor Code provides guidelines that help us achieve our goals for students to live successfully in our community. Camp costs for half-day camps include before-camp care; camp costs for full-day camps include before- and after-camp care as well.

If you have any questions about the 2018 Wildcat Summer Camp program, please call us at 704. 358. 8101, or email wildcatsummer@tescharlotte.org.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Warmly,

Wildcat Summer Camp Staff

2018 Program Information

Cost
Prices vary by camp. Please see individual camp descriptions for cost.

Multi-Camp Discount
Use the discount code 4ORMORE to register for four or more weeks of full-day camps to receive $25/off each week. Does not apply to single half-day camps. (2 Half-Day camps/week = full-day camp; discount applies).  Discount does not apply for University Math CAMMP, Youth Digital camps or Drone camps.

Payment
Due to limited camp sizes, space cannot be held without payment. A $50 deposit towards your camp tuition will be due upon registration. The balance is due by and withdrawn from your account on file on Friday, May 11, 2018. If you are registering after May 11, you must pay in full.  No refunds will be issued after May 10, 2018 and parents will be notified by June 1, 2018 (or at minimum 2 weeks prior to a camp) in the unlikely event that a camp has been cancelled. Financial assistance is available on a first come, first served basis. Please be able to provide your most recent income tax statement.

Registration
We will be using an online registration and payment management software. All payments must be made through this system. Checks will be accepted on a limited basis.

Hours
Camp programming runs from 9am-4pm. Before- and after-camp care is included in the cost of camp (7:50am-9am and 4-5:30pm). Campers should arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to camp. In certain instances, campers will spend time on field trips in the mornings and/or afternoons. If you need to pick up your child prior to the end of camp, please notify the staff in advance to arrange pick-up.

Half-Day Option
A few of our full-day camps are available as a half-day option, either morning or afternoon. You may pick and choose camps that fit the interests of your child. Children participating in two separate camps (a morning camp and then an afternoon camp) will stay on campus for lunch and recess before joining their afternoon camp.

Drop-Off
Please plan on dropping off your child at Trinity no later than 8:45am. Camp staff will meet you outside at the drop-off lane where they will sign your child in. Registration will end at 8:50am; please come inside the building to register after that time. We will treat this as a regular carpool line so please pull all the way around the circle to allow for other vehicles. If you have questions, you may park and walk your child up to the tables or inside the building.

Late Pick-Up
There is a five-minute grace period at pick-up time. After 12:05 (half-day), 4:05 (full-day) or 5:35 (with after-care), there will be a $5/minute charge. Two or more instances of late pick up in one week will result in non-refunded removal from program.

Attire
Campers should dress for outdoor exploring and activities. Light-weight clothing, closed-toed shoes, sunscreen and water bottles are essential. Please bring a light rain jacket for rainy days.

Water Bottles
We will be cup-free this summer so please bring a full water bottle to camp each day. There will be water available for refilling.

Food
A nutritious continental breakfast will be served from 7:50-8:30am each morning.  For full-day campers, please send a morning and afternoon snack in 2 separate ziploc bags. Half-day campers should only bring one snack. The snacks should be clearly labeled with your camper’s name and ‘AM or PM’ in the event we go on a field trip during snack time. Campers are responsible for bringing their own lunch from home each day. Clearly label any containers with your child’s name.

Field Trip Transportation
We take numerous field trips throughout the summer. We transport the campers in 12- or 15- passenger vans. The vans will be driven by camp staff members that are 21 years or older.  If your child rides in a booster seat normally, please plan on bringing one that is clearly labeled to camp each day.

Allergies
An online health form is required with camp registration. Please complete and submit the information to ensure we are fully aware of your child’s health history. We will offer breakfast and snack alternatives for those with food allergies. We keep Benadryl on hand, but Epi-pens should be supplied from home (in a clearly labeled ziploc bag) and will remain until the last day of camp for your child.

FAQs

Q:What time should I plan on dropping off my camper in the mornings?

A: Please plan on dropping your camper off at TES no later than 8:45am.  We will start early morning care at 7:50am. Please do not drop off your camper before 7:50am.

Q: What does drop-off look like in the mornings?

A: You will be directed around a carpool line. Please pull all the way forward to accommodate other cars. On the first day, you may walk your child up. After the first day, please stay in your car. It is important that we teach our children independence at camp. Allow them to be responsible for their belongings in the mornings and at camp.

Q: What should I do if I am running late for drop off or pick up?

A: Please call 704-358-8101 and ask to speak to a counselor at Wildcat Summer Camp.

Q: What does pick-up look like in the afternoons?

A: We require everyone to sign out their child in the afternoons. Please park and walk into the TED room. We will NOT require IDs at check-out.

Q: What if my camper is just joining for an afternoon camp?

A: Please walk your camper into the TED Room to sign in if they are joining in the afternoons.

Q: Are schedules for the week provided?

A: Yes! We send out detailed information one to two weeks prior to camp starting regarding what to bring, schedules and activities.

Q: How do I find out if my camper needs something special for the day?

A: We have a big whiteboard in the TED room behind the sign-out desk. Please check that whiteboard daily for reminders on what to bring the following day.

Q: What if my child has dietary needs or allergies?

A: Please indicate all dietary needs and allergies on the registration form. If providing medicine, please label and give to the check-in counselor the first morning of camp.

Q: What can I do to help my child be successful at Wildcat Summer Camp?

A: Please review the TES Honor Code with your camper before arriving for camp! We live by our Honor Code on and off campus and hold our campers to it, whether they are a TES student or not.
