Parish Summer Day Camp is offered all summer long and is packed with fun activities such as waterslides, bounce houses, arts & crafts, and gym games. Some age groups travel to local attractions for weekly field trips. Stay all day or mix and match a half-day Parish Summer Day Camp with specialty camps to create your perfect summer adventure.

Parish Summer offers hundreds of half day and full day specialty camps in the arts, athletics, STEM and academics. Combinations are unlimited, build your perfect summer with us!

Our early drop off program allows you to get to work on time while your child plays with camp friends beginning at 7:30 a.m. After camps end at 3:30, your child can continue their day with our extended afternoon program. Discounts apply when extended day programs are combined with full day or combo camp options.

Keep up with all the summer camp fun! 🌞

Summer FAQs

General Camp Information

What should my child wear to camp?

Campers should wear closed-toe shoes, a t-shirt, and shorts. We advise that you send a sweatshirt or fleece with your camper as our building can run a bit cold in the summer. PreK campers should always have a change of clothes in their bags and should also bring a sheet for their nap mat. All campers should reference the weekly welcome letter so that they may be prepared for special days and activities. This letter is sent the Wednesday before camp starts.

Should I pack snacks?

Campers have snack time at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm each day. Snacks from home are always welcome. For your convenience, you may purchase weekly snacks for the AM or PM snack period during the registration process. The weekly price for snacks is $5.00 for AM snacks and $5.00 for PM snacks. Snacks will be pre-determined on a weekly basis. Pre-ordered snacks can be purchased through your camp account and ordered as late as Friday before each camp week.

Each day will feature one snack such as Goldfish, Teddy Grahams, Cheez-Its and more, depending on availability. Gluten-free snacks such as Veggie Straws and Pirate’s Booty are available for campers with food-sensitive allergies.

Campers will not visit the Paws store during their camp time. Campers should bring snacks from home, pre-order snacks through their camp account, or purchase snacks from Paws before camp begins.

What about lunch?

Lunchtime is 12:00 pm –12:30 pm for students going from morning to afternoon camp. Lunch is fully supervised by counselors and instructors. Students must bring their lunch. Please note that lunches will not be refrigerated nor can they be heated. Parish Summer is nut-free.

Where and when do I check-in on the first day?

First day check-in will occur in the carpool line; parents will not need to park and walk their child(ren) inside. Counselors will unload your child(ren) from your vehicle and will walk them to their assigned camp. Check-in for Extended Day AM opens at 7:30 a.m., 8:45 a.m. for morning camps, and 12:15 p.m. for afternoon camps.

How do I communicate a change in my child's schedule or an absence?

Please email any changes to summer@parish.org.
