Extended Day DC Campus

To accommodate our families’ busy schedules, Sidwell Summer offers before and after care programs throughout the summer.  These programs serve as an extension of our camp day and include games, activities, collection, and more!

Sidwell Summer offers two Extended Day Programs on the DC Campus:

  • Early Risers: 7:30 AM – 8:45 AM
  • Camp ’til Six: 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM

At Early Risers, campers will have the option to play board games, read, color, and relax before the regular camp day begins. Campers are walked by Early Risers staff to the appropriate program meeting locations each morning.

At Camp ‘til Six, campers will have the option to have a snack, do arts & crafts, play sports, and more! This program is less structured than the camp day to allow for relaxation after a busy day.

Space permitting, weekly registration for Camp ’til Six and/or Early Risers must be completed no later than 12:00 PM (noon) on the Friday prior to the start of the program.

Early Risers Drop Off Policy

Early Risers begins at 7:30 AM.  You may not drop off for Early Risers prior to 7:30 AM. Early Risers is located in the Cafeteria – you must park and walk your camper into the Cafeteria to sign in.

Early Drop Off Fees: It is unsafe to have any camper on campus unsupervised. Therefore, early drop-off fees are incurred if a camper is on campus prior to the designated drop-off time without an adult. The early drop off fee is $50.00/day. Please note charges are per camper and will apply to each child.  Payment must be given in order for the camper to continue to participate in their camp program. Multiple instances of Early Risers may result in dismissal of the camper from camp. 

Camp ’til Six Pick Up Policy

You must park and sign your camper out from the Camp ’til 6 program. Pick up is from the designated Camp ’til Six program location listed below:

Junior Camp ’til 6 – Middle School

Senior Camp ’til 6 – Arts Center

Camp ’til 6 – Cafeteria

Note, if you arrive between 5:45-6:00 PM, all campers and staff will be in the parking garage for pick up.

Late Pick-Up Policy and Fees:  Campers registered for Camp ’til Six must be picked up by 6:00 PM. After 6:00 PM, any remaining campers are considered late pick-ups. Our staff’s time is as valuable to us as the time of our families. Therefore, late pick up fees are incurred beginning at 6:00 PM.  Payment is due at the time of pick-up- no exceptions. Payments can be made by cash, check, or credit card in the office. If a camper is picked up within 15-minutes of the designated pick-up time, it is a flat charge of $15.00 (between 6:00 PM and 6:15 PM). For campers picked up between 6:15 PM and 6:30 PM, there is a flat charge of $50.00. Any camper picked up later than 6:30 PM is charged a late fee of $75.00 and this is considered grounds for dismissal from the Camp ‘til Six program without refund. Please note charges are per camper and will apply to each child.
