An additional charge of $20 will be assessed for all campers remaining on campus past 5:30 pm for the first 10 minutes. After 5:40 pm, the charge will increase to an additional $5 per minute.  Late pick up fees will be invoiced with your weekly fees.

Discipline Policy

It is expected that every student attending Summer@CMDS follow Christ Methodist Day School’s procedures and standards of behavior. Consideration of others in thought and action is expected. Summer@CMDS reserves the right to require the withdrawal of any student who poses as a discipline problem or a disruption to the learning process. No refunds will be issued for students who are asked to withdraw.

Personal Items

Summer@CMDS is not responsible for lost or stolen property. All personal items, including clothing, should be in a bag and clearly marked with the student’s name. Students should not bring valuable items.


Campers should wear comfortable clothes each day. For safety reasons, no flip-flops, Crocs, or other shoes that slip off the heel should be worn.
Sandals with a back are allowed but don’t work well for gym and field activities.


Campers should bring a balanced sack lunch that doesn’t require heating or refrigeration. If we have a special lunch, advance notice will be given.

Pick-Up Authorization

Only authorized adults designated on the registration form will be allowed to pick up children from Summer@CMDS. It is the parents’ responsibility to notify the Summer@CMDS director of any dismissal change. The authorized adult to whom the child is being released must show proof of identification.

Refund Policy

Day Camp and Enrichment Camp fees are refunded in full when the session is at capacity or is canceled by Summer@CMDS. Except in extenuating circumstances which must be disclosed to the Summer@CMDS office prior to the start of an activity, refunds will not be given after a session begins. In such event, a refund check will be issued by the Business Office. A request for withdrawal occurring at least five (5) business days prior to the first session/class meeting will result in a refund/credit of fees.
