The mission of the Saint James’ Episcopal School Summer Camp program is to provide opportunities where children can discover and learn while creating fun, exciting and adventurous experiences. Our preschool camps are designed for rising preschool and rising kindergarten children, ages 3 - 6. All preschool campers must be potty-trained and able to use the restroom facilities independently. Our elementary camps are designed for children ages 6 - 11. Children do not have to be SJES students to enjoy our summer camps!

Campers need to bring a snack and water bottle each day. SJES is a peanut and tree-nut sensitive campus. We ask all campers to please refrain from bringing food containing nuts or food that is processed in facilities that may contain or are exposed to nuts. All allergy and food restrictions need to be noted in the space provided in the registration process and will be addressed in detail after the registration is complete.

We offer After Camp Care from 1pm-4pm, Monday- Friday $150 (May 28 - 31, 4 day camp $120)
This extended day option is available for both our preschool and elementary camps. The younger campers will have a short nap/ quiet time; our older campers will have a quiet reading time. The rest of the day will be spent doing outdoor activities or inside centers.

PRESCHOOL and RISING KINDERGARTEN campers must be ages 3-6. All children attending preschool camps must be potty-trained and able to use the restroom facilities independently. 

We're sorry, but all of our preschool/rising kindergarten camps are full. 
We hope to see you at Camp SJES next year!
