summercampAt 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
  • Our complimentary before- and after-camp care (7:50-9am and 4-5:30pm) to accommodate working families

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 2017!

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.

If you have any questions about the 2017 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

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 will be due by May 12. If you are submitting your application after May 12, you must pay in full. Registration and final payments are due by and withdrawn from your account on file on Friday, May 12, 2017. No refunds will be issued after May 11, 2017 and parents will be notified by May 26, 2017  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. Campers should arrive no later than 8:40am for camp. Complimentary before- and after- camp care is available 7:50-9am and 4-5:30pm. Campers will spend time on field trips in the mornings and afternoons. If you need to pick up your child prior to 4pm, please notify the staff in advance to arrange pick-up.

Half Day Option
Most of our full-day camps are available as a half-day option, either morning (9am-12pm) or afternoon (1-4pm). 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 recess and lunch before joining their afternoon camp.

Drop-Off
Please plan on dropping off your child at Trinity no later than 8:40am. Camp staff will meet you outside in the drop-off lane where they will sign your child in. We will treat this as a regular carpool line so please drop your child off all the way around the circle. If you have questions, you may park and walk your child up.

Late Pick-Up
There is a five-minute grace period at pick-up time. After 12:05 (half-day) or 5:35pm (full-day), 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. Please send a morning and afternoon snack in 2 separate ziploc bags. 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 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.

Medical Information
Health information is required with camp registration. Please complete and submit the information to ensure we are fully aware of your child’s health concerns/conditions. 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.
