Thank you for your interest in Summer Programs at Parker!

All of our previously scheduled in-person 2020 Summer Programs are canceled. We know this is necessary for the safety of students and staff, but also that it is a great disappointment. Refunds in-full will be honored. If you are registered for an in-person 2020 Summer Program, updates will be sent via your ACTIVE account.

We are excitedly exploring virtual possibilities for summer fun in 2020. See details below about At Home with Parker Summers, a virtual camp for grades JK–8!

 


Join in the fun of virtual Parker Summers—live, in your home! Your faithful Camp Directors, Jan Zoufal and Stacie Newmark, have designed a new program to engage your camper in virtual summer camp fun.
At Home with Parker Summers is open to students in JK–8th grade (grade level based on the 2019–20 school year). Click here to see our schedule and activities!

Dates: At Home with Parker Summers will run in three, two-week sessions, each with a classic Parker Summers theme:
  • Session I: June 22–July 3. Theme: All About Summer
  • Session II: July 6–7. Theme: All About Sports
  • Session III: July 20–31. Theme: All About Exploration
Times: The same program will be offered in the morning and the afternoon in a 90-minute block of live, virtual engagement. Attend whichever time block you like, Monday through Thursday. You do not have to attend the same time block each day.
  • Morning time block: 9:30–11 a.m., Monday–Thursday
  • Afternoon time block: 1:30–3 p.m., Monday–Thursday
  • Fridays are reserved for non-live content that we will share and that you can use for summer camp family fun throughout the weekend!
Content: Each 90-minute block will be full of summertime fun that includes movement, art and science projects, activity choices, sharing with friends, and setting expectations for the next day or week. Click here to see our schedule and activities!

Supplies: The week before each two-week session starts, kits of project materials and other fun supplies will be available for pick-up at Parker (contact-free and during designated hours). A list of what is in the kit, and other supplies your camper may need, will be shared in advance in case you are not able to pick up a kit. Each camper will need a device with internet access to participate.

Staff: We are working to secure some of our veteran Parker Summers Camp Teachers to lead our live camp sessions in partnership with Camp Directors, Jan Zoufal and Stacie Newmark.

Camper groups: Campers will be divided by general grade level and split further depending on registration. A minimum of 25 registrations per session is needed for this program to run.
  • Minnows and Frogs: Campers in JK–2nd Grade
  • Dolphins and Sharks: Campers in 3rd–8th Grades
Cost: Each two-week session is $200 per camper, and includes your kit and t-shirt. This fee has been set to encourage participation and will cover only a portion of the overhead costs of running this camp. As a result, please understand that neither financial assistance nor discounts are available.
