The option to include summer camp in your SSFS contract is available for families with students who will be entering Preschool (age 3) through 3rd grade in the fall of 2019. Your child MUST be three years old by the start of camp (June 17) to participate. If your child will turn three after this date, you should select the regular academic year option, and register online separately for Summer at Sandy Spring for the weeks after which your child turns three.
First: After admission, select the “Academic Year Plus Camp” option in your enrollment contract.
Second: you will need to log in or create a summer camp account on the Summer at Sandy Spring Camp Registration page.
Third: select all 8 weeks of camp, and then select the payment option “Pay with credit from 2019.” Once you have submitted your registration, we will go into your account and apply the discount to reflect the $2000.00 Academic Plus Summer program fee. (Once enrolled, Intermediate Friends Camp participants should also select morning and afternoon camp workshop options.)
The academic year + summer camp contract does not have a prorated option; therefore, we are unable to deduct the cost of weeks missed. If you will miss some of the weeks during the summer due to travel, the regular academic year contract may be the best option, and you may register for individual weeks of camp through the Summer at Sandy Spring website.
Financial aid is available during the school year for students in grades K-3, but no additional financial aid is available for camp beyond the 25% discount that automatically applies with this extended contract. Please contact Director of Financial Aid Dawn Griffith if you have additional questions.
