Summer Camp General Information

Rivendell Summer Enrichment Camps run 8:00am-3:00pm daily. Pickup is from 3:00-3:20pm (see below). No aftercare or before-care is available; doors do not open until 8:00am.

Camps are open to all children. You do not need to be a Rivendell student to attend.

For more details, see our complete Rivendell Summer Enrichment Camp Parent Handbook. Some information is different from the Parent Handbook this year due to Covid-19. Please refer to the Summer Camp 2021 Covid FAQ.

Registration

To register you will need your child's name and emergency contact information. There are also additional forms for preschoolers and campers who require medications during camp (including Epi-Pens). Please make sure you fill out these forms, have them signed by your health care provider, and upload them to the registration site or return them to Rivendell school before the first day of camp. Campers must have these forms completed to attend. Preschool campers must be fully toilet trained to attend camp. Preschoolers may not come to camp in diapers or pull-ups.

Preschoolers may enroll for any 3, 4 or 5 days a week (subject to availability). Other campers must enroll for the full one- or two-week session as listed; no partial-session enrollments.

All deposit fees are due upon registration and are non-refundable. Non-refundable deposit fees for Summer 2021 are $50 per camp for ages 5-12 and $15 per day for preschool.

Non-refundable deposit fees for each week's camp are due upon registration and must be made with a credit card (Visa or MasterCard only).

Age restrictions are firm and are based on the camper's age as of the first day of the camp session.

Camp registration closes the Friday morning prior to the first day of the given camp.

Wait Lists: If your child is first on a wait list and a spot opens up, we will contact you. You will have 24 hours to accept the spot. If we do not hear from you within 24 hours, it is our policy to proceed to the next child on the wait list.

Payment

You may pay in full on your credit card or by ACH payment at checkout, or choose to pay the balance in installments on your credit card or by ACH payment (card or ACH will automatically be charged on the payment due date). If you would prefer to use an alternative method to pay your balance, you must first register using the installment plan with your credit card, then contact the Rivendell Office (rivendell-camps@rivendell-school.org, 970-493-9052)

Cancellations and Refunds

All deposit fees due upon registration. Deposit fees are non-refundable.

Cancellations must be made 7 days prior to the first day of the camp session to receive a full refund less the non-refundable deposit fee. Cancellations made less than 7 days before the first day of the camp session will receive a 50% refund less the non-refundable deposit fee. Cancellations made on or after the first day of the camp session will not receive a refund.

Non-refundable deposit fees and no-show fees are required as we consistently have wait lists and are turning away other families when we reserve a space for your child(ren). Additionally, these fees cover the cost of the staff time needed to process and cancel registrations and manage wait lists.

Campers may cancel a camp and move to a new camp if space is available at no additional charge (balances and payments will be adjusted if the new camp price is different from the cancelled camp). Non-refundable deposit fees for cancelled camps may not be applied towards the tuition of other camps.

For policies related to missed camps due to COVID-19, please see our Summer Camp FAQ.

What to Bring

Campers should bring their lunch each day in a lunch box or an appropriate container to keep lunch at a safe, desirable temperature (microwaves will not be available). Campers should also bring a morning snack. We recommend that all snack items be non-perishable. For some camps, campers may need additional gear (e.g. backpacks, comfortable walking shoes, etc.); these will be listed in the camp descriptions.

Most camps spend plenty of time outside each day. Parents should make sure that campers have sunscreen applied in the morning before camp. Sunscreen will also be applied in the afternoon, either with the camper's own supplied sunscreen or Rivendell's sunscreen.

Popsicles or Otter Pops are given out at the end of the day. Notify us if you do not want your child to have them.

Pickup and Aftercare

Aftercare is not available for Summer 2021. Campers must be picked up by 3:20pm. Pick up after 3:20 p.m. will result in a $25 late fee per half hour.
