Summer adventure starts here!
With 250+ camps in academics, arts, athletics, languages, and STEM, you can create a summer customized to your child and their interests. Select from mornings, afternoons or full day camps or pick your own combo of morning and afternoon options. We had a blast last summer and we can’t wait to see you again! Registration is open!
Our summer experience is designed for children ages three to 18 and includes a traditional day camp and specialty camps for a wide range of interests.
We offer an incremental volume discount on select camps based on the total number of camps registered per child over the course of the summer. Ineligible camps are noted in their program description. No code required, the discounts automatically apply when eligible camps are in your cart.
Day camp is offered all summer long and is packed with fun activities such as waterslides, arts & crafts, STEM and maker activities mixed in with friendship, fun and games. Our 4th-7th grade campers travel to local attractions for weekly field trips. Stay all day or mix and match a half-day day camp with specialty camps to create your perfect summer.
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 p.m., your child can continue their day with our extended afternoon program.
Those who register for the full day of Parish Summer Day Camp qualify for free Morning Extended Care and $50 (reduced from $75) Afternoon Extended Care.

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, Cheez-Its, PIrate’s Booty, Veggie Straws 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. 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 email@example.com.
At what age may my child attend camp?
Your child must be 3 years old and toilet trained. View policy below:
Children in all PreK camps are expected to be fully toilet trained before entering our program. It is expected that the child is toilet trained, stays dry for several hours, and uses the bathroom during our restroom breaks or when they request to use the restroom. In addition, children must be wearing underwear in our camps and may not wear pull-ups.
The following are a few of the signs we see when your child is toilet trained:
- The child recognizes when they need to use the toilet.
- The child stays dry for an extended period of time.
- The child can undress and pull up his/her own pants.
- The child can wipe him/herself after using the toilet.
- The child can wake up during nap time should they need to use the restroom.
Provide at least 2 changes of clothes, including pants, underwear and socks. Soiled clothing will be placed in a bag in your child’s backpack to be taken home.
- If restroom accidents occur, parents will be notified with the understanding that the issue needs to be addressed and corrected.
- If multiple accidents occur in one day, the parent will be notified and must pick up their child. If not corrected by the next day, the child will have to stay home the remainder of the week. No refund will be applied.
What if my child is enrolled/enrolling in Primer in the fall of 2022?
We ask that you register your child in camps available for the grade your child just completed. For Parish students this is Kindergarten, but we understand that other schools place Primer in a different sequence than do we.
What do the campers do in Day Camp?
A sample schedule for the Parish Summer Day Camp can be found here. This is not a hard and fast schedule but will give you a general idea of the day to day.
How do I register for Parish Summer?
All camps have registration links which will take you directly to the registration site for that camp. You may browse this site and access camps in that order, or you can go directly to the site and browse and select camps on that system.
Camps and classes are limited in size and are available on a first come, first served basis. Scheduled payments must be fulfilled in order to retain your child’s place in any camp.

Is there a deadline?
Registrations received after Thursday at noon will incur an additional fee of $50 per camp.
We happily accept walk-in registrations on a space available basis.
How do I make changes to my reservations?
Camps can be added at any time via your Parish Summer online account. If you need to make a change to an existing reservation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
