Roeper Summer Programs are designed to provide an enriching and rewarding experience for every child. Summer programs place value upon the relationships between children and staff and carry out the Roeper philosophy. While the school is designed for the gifted child, participation in summer programs is open to all children.
The Roeper Summer Day Camp has been a recreational day camp for children three to twelve years old since 1947. The 13 acre campus includes a gymnasium, locker rooms and lunchroom, two swimming pools, woodlands, a creek, field spaces, three playgrounds, nature trails and numerous activity buildings. Activities including art, crafts, dance, drama, music, pottery, science, specialty crafts, swimming, field games, computer, coop games and outdoor adventure are offered at Roeper Camp.
This year we will be offering a new option for campers - the Roeper Summer Day Camp Hybrid Programs. This new offering is available to boys and girls currently in second grade through age 12. The Hybrid Camps provide campers with the opportunity to spend half of the day at Roeper Summer Day Camp involved in regular activities and, during the other half of the day, campers will attend a specialty camp. Three unique specialty camps are being offered this year - Soccer Camp, Lacrosse Camp and Technology Camp.
A hot lunch, included in tuition, is provided daily for both the Roeper Summer Day Camp and the Roeper Summer Day Camp Hybrid Program. Before and after care is available.
