Summer Camps

Online camp registration will close on Friday, May 15 for all camps. Please visit the Summer Camp Office during camp hours (8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) for late registration. Camps are no longer refundable after May 15.


Campers in grades K-6 should be dropped off at the appropriate drop-off area in front of the Lower School Farish Building no earlier than 10 minutes before the beginning of camp. This area is accessed through Gate 9 located directly behind the Lamar Towers building at the corner of West Alabama and Buffalo Speedway. Proceed down the driveway to the drop-off area in front of the Farish building. Click on the Campus Map & Directions link on the right for more information. Note: the following athletic camps have alternative drop-off locations:
  • Batbusters Softball: Gate 14
  • Shellback Lacrosse: Gate 11
Camp personnel will assist with unloading your campers. Please do not get out of your car in the carpool area. You may park in the designated parking areas only. For the safety of all campers, DO NOT stop in the "chute" to let children out of the car. You must proceed to the appropriate drop-off area or park in the designated areas and walk your children to their camp.

Pick-up will follow the same procedure. Your campers will be delivered to the pickup area and someone will assist children into their cars. Children in grades K-6 who do not participate in one of the Lunch Bunch groups should be picked up when their morning session is over. At no time should campers in grades K-6 be left unattended on the campus. Each child should be delivered to the classroom or the counselors at the drop-off/pick-up area. At the end of camp, children whose caretaker does not arrive within 10 minutes to pick him/her up will be delivered to the camp office. If you have special needs, contact Michele Hayes (camps@sjs.org) so arrangements can be made.

Registration and Payment

SJS Summer Camps are open to ALL children, including non-SJS students. Registration should be completed online. A separate registration is required for each child registering. Links can be found at the top of this page.

When your registration is submitted, you will receive a confirmation by email which will list all the camps for which you registered, the amount paid, and a confirmation number. You should print a copy of this email for your records. Camp fees must be paid online by credit card at the time of registration.

In order to keep our instructor-to-camper ratio low, please be advised that some camps have limited enrollment. We encourage you to register early to secure a spot for your child in the camps of your choice. Online registration for all camps will close Friday, May 15.

Late Registration

Late registration will take place in person at the Summer Camp Office, which is located in the Lower School Office. Parents wishing to enroll their child(ren) must visit the Summer Camp Office to register. Late registrations will be accepted on a case-by-case basis only, as space permits. The Camp Office is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., starting May 26. Late registration can only be purchased with cash or check.

Refund Policy

We need a minimum number of students enrolled in every course in order for it to begin, and we must adhere to the following policy regarding cancellations and refunds. You will receive a partial refund if you cancel for any reason prior to the registration deadline listed to the right. Regardless of the reason for withdrawing from a camp (i.e., illness, injury, family commitment, etc.) a $50 processing fee will be charged for all withdrawals. After May 15, your money will be refunded only if a class is cancelled. There is no prorating for days missed. St. John’s School reserves the right to cancel any course for which there is insufficient enrollment.

In the case of extreme weather, St. John's School may cancel or postpone camps for the safety of the campers. St. John's School will not provide refunds for cancellations or postponements that are weather-related.

All registrations are made with the understanding that St. John’s School reserves the right to request withdrawal of any student whose conduct, influence, attendance or participation is regarded as undesirable or detrimental to the summer camp program, or who refuses to conform to the rules and regulations.
