  • Extended Hours Care

    Early Bird Drop Off, Lunch Bunch, and ACE (After Camp Experience) are all staffed by Walker School employees.


    Early Bird Drop Off

    Early drop off care is offered on a weekly basis and can be purchased as an add-on to any morning camp session for grades 1-8 offered from June 4 – July 27. Unless otherwise noted, the central location for Early Bird Drop-off will be Gatti Hall in the Lower School Building. Fun safe activities will be supervised, and students will be allowed to enjoy a morning snack brought from home. Children may arrive at 7:30 a.m. or later. Staff will accompany campers to their first camp or class. The weekly fee for Early Bird Drop Off is $35.


    Lunch Bunch

    A supervised lunch and recess is also offered on a weekly basis and can be purchased as an add-on to any morning or afternoon camp. Campers need to bring a bagged lunch from home. When registering for camp, two options will be offered for Lunch Bunch:

    • Lunch Bunch 1 – Students who are attending one camp session, either morning or afternoon, during the designated week can purchase Lunch Bunch 1 for $25.
    • Lunch Bunch 2 – Students who are attending a morning session and an afternoon session during the same week may select this option at no additional cost.


    ACE (After Camp Experience)

    Our After Camp Experience option for rising 1st - 8th grade students will be available to all of our afternoon and full day campers. After Camp Experience participants will be escorted to the Lower School Gatti Hall where they will sign in at 4 p.m. and participate in a variety of fun activities such as arts and crafts, supervised playground time, games, and more until 6 p.m. The weekly fee for the After Camp Experience is $50.
  • Camp Deadlines & Policies

    Minimum Enrollment Deadline: Camps which have not met their minimum by May 1st will be canceled.

    Registration Deadline:  With a few exceptions, most camps which attain minimum enrollment by May 1 will remain open until two weeks before the camp starts. A limited number of camps may close 3 weeks before the start date in order to allow for enough time for special supplies to be ordered. Check the registration website for details about individual camps. If you wish to register for a camp less than two weeks prior to the camp start, please contact the camp leader or the Summer Programs Director for further information.

    Refund and Cancellation Policy:  The Walker School reserves the right to cancel any portion of a summer program in case of unforeseen circumstances. Refunds will be issued. No refunds will be given for missed days during a session period. To meet planning needs, after the May 1 deadline, no refunds will be given for withdrawals from a camp or workshop unless there are documented extenuating circumstances. However, if your plans change, you may transfer your student from one camp to another up to two weeks prior to the first day of camp. Please contact the Summer Programs Director with any schedule changes. 

    Extended Care/Drop In Policy: Early Bird Drop Off, Lunch Bunch, and After Camp Care are offered as additional options for one-week camp sessions and cannot accommodate single or drop-in days. It is best to register for Early Bird Drop Off or After Care when registering for camp as spaces often fill up.

    Late Fee: A late fee of $1 per minute will be charged if parents do not arrive by the appointed pick-up time following any camp session.
