Welcome to Summer Camp
We have designed our summer program to offer your child the most possible fun that he/she could have without you by allowing them to explore week long themes like Wild West Week and Space – The New Frontier. We have planned numerous activities, games, swimming, water play, music, crafts, and field trips around our thematic weeks.
The hours of operation are from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. There will be a summer camp fee which will pay for arts and crafts, field trips, tee-shirts, and swimming (K-4th). Space is limited, so please register early to ensure your child will have a great summer. If your child is currently attending Springfield Academy or Spring N Dale, your child is already enrolled in our summer camp program.
Please review our Proud History and this brochure to give you insight to what our school has to offer you and your child. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to stop by the office.
We look forward to serving you and offering your child the experience and excitement that only summer camp can hold. Welcome again to Springfield Academy’s and Spring N Dale’s Summer Camp.
