Spend the Summer at Bright

Bright Days

Every day is going to be a BRIGHT day at Bright Days summer program for early learners! The program includes morning and closing ceremonies, on-site field trips, camp songs, nature exploration, outside play, water days, art projects, visits to the school library, and more. Children get to know their counselors and fellow campers as they experience the quality of a Bright education in the summer.

Our weekly and daily schedule varies with each age group. A week before camp, you will receive a Bright Days newsletter with specific details surrounding the camp's activities for the week. Also, we have our own Bright Days curricula to ensure fun and learning take place every day.

Bright Days is open to children age 3 by August 1 (and potty trained) through age 8 or rising third graders. A healthy lunch is included in the weekly price.

A regular day is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for $225 a week with early care between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. for no charge. Late care will be available from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for $35 a week. There is a half day option, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., for $175.

Bright Days will be held June 7-11, June 14-18, June 21-25, June 28-July 2, July 12-16, July 19-23 and July 26-30. There is no Bright Days the week of July 4.

Financial Policies

Deposit

Each family pays a $50 non-refundable deposit upon registration to secure a spot in Bright Days. The deposit will be applied to you child's first week of camp. 

Each family will receive an email stating the balance amount (remainder of the session cost and optional late care), due date and payment options prior to the start of each weekly session. Full payment must be made prior to or on the first day of the session.

Refund Policy

The cost of Bright Days is partially refundable (excluding the deposit) up to one week prior to the start of the session. If cancelling two or more weeks before the session begins, $175 will be refunded for full day and $125 will be refunded for half day. If cancelling one week before the session begins, $150 will be refunded for full day and $100 for half day. There are no refunds if cancelling less than a week before the session begins. 

Health Policies

These policies and procedures are subject to change.

Face Coverings: Each child is required to wear a face covering at all times indoors. Fabric face coverings must have two layers, and gaiters must be folded over to create two layers. Bandanas are not allowed. Disposable masks are permissible. Please make sure fabric face coverings are clean each day.

Fever Policy: If a camper presents at school with a temperature of 100.4 F or above, Bright Days will contact the child's parents or guardians to pick up the child. The child should not return to camp until the temperature has been normal without fever reducing medication for a minimum of 48 hours. 

Symptom Policy: A camper who presents at camp with any of the following symptoms should report directly to the school nurse or director of Bright Days to be evaluated. The nurse/director will contact the child’s parents/guardians to be picked up from school. Parents should contact their child's primary care doctor to discuss whether a COVID-19 test is required. A test also may be necessary for any siblings currently enrolled at Bright Days. These symptoms include:

Fever (less than 100.4 F)
Cough 
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing 
Or two or more of these symptoms: chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell 

Promoting Daily Hygiene Routines: Think of all the fun songs we will learn about washing hands! Campers and counselors will wash hands frequently during the day. The Facility Team will deep clean spaces after hours as well as wipe down door handles and hard surfaces during the day. Bathrooms will be cleaned several times during the day. We will all partner together for regular cleaning practices for desks, equipment, writing utensils, and other classroom materials.
