Update for Parents & Campers: We continue to welcome campers for our upcoming 2020 Summer Camp, and we look forward to offering all of our campers and families a “normal” summer full of fun, engaging activities. That’s why, in response to the current COVID-19 situation, we’re taking strong steps to ensure all of our summer camp spaces and activities are safe for all campers to enjoy. We have also made changes to our tuition options for summer camp to support our campers & their families. Please see the “Tuition” section below for more information, and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
This year’s 2020 SummerQuest themes will include The Great Outdoors, A Splash of Color, Animal Planet, H2-O’Yeah!, and Crazy Concoctions, so there will be fun brewing, every day!! Throughout the summer, campers will have the opportunity to explore adventures such as field trips, geocaching, camping, examining ecosystems, joining in recreational activities and sports, as well as performing quirky and crazy science experiments, participating in games and contests while enjoying laughter, literacy, and fun with friends! Our amazingly creative staff is working diligently to develop crafts, cooking activities, and sports and games that will be dynamic enough to encourage your child to dive deep into each theme.
Specials related to our themes are: being able to interact with live animal exhibits and explore ecosystems during our Great Outdoors activities; creating treasure maps and leaping through a fun-filled water field day during H2-O’Yeah; learning how to make Elephant Toothpaste and many more amazing mixtures in psychedelic science activities during Crazy Concoctions; and uncovering hidden nature surprises in geocaching activities during Nature Unleashed! These and many more activities await your camper this summer!
We believe that camp should be an informal educational experience, devoted to learning, based on fun, play, and action in a safe, yet stimulating environment. Our programs for all ages nurture each child's natural wonder of the world by providing a catalyst for creativity, imagination, and the freedom to explore and discover.
World Academy admit students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, or sex, to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities available at the school. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, or sex in the administration of its educational or admissions policies. Students with disabilities will be accommodated to the extent of the facilities and resources available.
World Academy seeks to attract bright students and families whose varied interests, aptitudes, talents, motivation and character will enable them to undertake and master the school's program with enthusiasm and success. Since it is our goal to provide an enriched environment that will foster social, intellectual, physical and emotional growth for all of our children, we feel the needs of the child and wishes of the parent are of ultimate importance in the admission process.
We encourage families to visit our facility and meet our staff before registering for Camp. This visit gives you the chance to learn about our school, our staff and our programs, as well as for us to get to know your family, your campers and your expectations! Please contact the Admissions Office at World Academy to schedule a visit!
When you visit the school for Summer Camp Programs, our Director of Admissions will provide you with information on camp programs as well as the registration documents. A re-registration fee is due each year for students in all programs who currently attend and wish to return for the upcoming year, including school programs, Early Childhood Education Programs, Camp, Before and After School and Vacation & Snow Day Programs. For example; students who register for camp must pay all applicable tuition fees, but need not pay an additional registration fee to enroll in the Before and After School Program for the school year following camp. Registration documents for camp will be provided to your family when you visit. Upon registering all forms must be received no less than two business days prior to the child starting in the program. A physician-endorsed notification indicating the completion of the set of immunizations prescribed by the State of New Hampshire must also be received at least 24 hours prior to the student's first day. Medical and emergency information must be updated annually, or as soon as the change occurs.
