Common Questions

Ensuring a positive and enjoyable summer camp experience and protecting the health and safety of all people on our campus are the top priorities for University High School. Below please find answers to the most frequently asked questions about summer camp logistics.

How do I get back into my account?

Visit this link to return to the account where you registered for 2024 summer programs.

Does the grade refer to now or the fall?

Grades listed refer to the grade the camper will enter in fall 2023. If your children are in 4th grade now, they are considered rising 5th graders for summer camp.

What should my camper bring to camp each day?

In addition to any specific items the instructor requests, campers should bring a water bottle, lunch (if needed), and prescription medications (if needed). Please label all items with your camper’s name so that we can reunite them if necessary.

Can campers stay for lunch?

For campers who are enrolled in morning and afternoon programs, we offered a supervised lunch time for no additional fee. After they have eaten, we encourage campers to play freely or join a group activity. When weather allows, we may offer the option of going outside with an adult.

Should campers bring their own lunches, or is lunch provided?

Lunch is not provided. Campers who attend both morning and afternoon sessions should bring a sack lunch from home each day. Lunch is not provided. Additionally, no refrigerator storage or microwaves will be available for camper lunches. We have water bottle fillers and vending machines. We do not, however, keep change on hand. So, campers are encouraged to bring a few one-dollar bills if they wish to use the vending machines. Campers can bring nut-based food; we are not a nut-free facility.

Can campers bring snacks?

Campers are welcome to bring snacks and should eat those snacks under the guidance of their individual camp teachers. Campers can bring nut-based food; we are not a nut-free facility.

How will drop off and pick up work?

Drop off and pick up for Square One and Multi-Sport camps take place at The U Center. Drop off and pick up for all other camps is in the Fairbanks Hall lobby. For the morning session, drop-off is from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m., and pick-up is from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. For the afternoon session, drop off is from 12:30 to 1:00 p.m., and pick up is from 4 to 4:30 p.m.

An adult must come inside each day to sign their camper in and out unless we are expressly notified in writing of other arrangements.

Are campers kept together or broken up into groups?

Campers in Multi-Sport, Square One, and 3D Computer Modeling camps may be broken into smaller groups by day or week. You may request to keep campers together. In all other camps, campers stay together in a single cohort though they may work together on projects in small groups.

Are there extended-day options?

We do not currently offer before or after-care.

What is your cancellation policy?

We give 50% refunds for camps that are canceled at least 17 days prior to the first day of a camp. After that period, no refunds are issued for camps canceled or otherwise not attended.

What if my camper doesn’t feel well?

Any camper who is ill should stay home and not attend camp while ill.
