Summer Camp

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 kindergarten children, ages 3 - 5. 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 register for 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.

Before Camp and After Camp Care

SJES Summer Camp Extended Day program offers families the flexibility to drop off campers before the camp day begins, starting at 8AM as well as extending their camp day until 1:30PM. Before and After Camp care is one program for both preschool and elementary students and is offered when our minimum enrollment has been met. All camp ages are welcome.

All camps run 9am-12pm unless otherwise noted. Enroll in our summer camps using our online registration form >
