Registration is now open for the Learning Tree After School Enrichment program’s Summer Camps.
Camps will operate from 7:15 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., from June 22 to Aug. 14 at the following locations: Beard, Cole, Driggers, Fields, Hatchett, Kallison, Locke Hill, and Rhodes elementary schools.
Tuition is $160 per week, and full tuition is due the Monday prior to the week enrolled in order to keep a child’s space for that week.
Summer Camp will not look the same as it has in past years. While the daily schedule will still include S.T.E.M. and Makerspace activities, digital learning, and outdoor and indoor recreation, staff will be following CDC health and safety guidelines throughout the day.
Here are some of the modifications and expectations:
- The program will limit group sizes per classroom and capacity for the entire camp at each location.
- Children will not change from one group to another.
- Each group will be in a separate room and will not mix with each other.
- Classes will adapt practices to allow physical distancing of at least 6 feet whenever possible.
- High touch surfaces will be sanitized between uses
- Community supplies will be avoided when possible, and manipulatives sanitized after use.
- There will be no field trips this summer.
- Staff will wear masks and gloves and encourage and reinforce social norms and health etiquette.
- It is highly encouraged for children to wear a mask.
Program activities will be offered while following as best as possible all social distancing requirements such as maintaining at least a six-foot distance from all individuals; frequently washing hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizer; following proper respiratory etiquette; and excluding children and staff from the program with contagious symptoms such as fever or cough.
Expectations and procedures for parents:
- ECC/Pre-K students will need to bring a napping mat.
- Kinder – 8th grade students will need to bring the device that they used for distance learning the last few months.

- All students may bring items from home that they want to use during the day: a book to read, craft, etc. They will remain in the child’s personal area for supplies and for his/her use only to prevent the unnecessary spread of germs. Label all items.
