Mount Vernon promises a summer to remember for young campers. After surveying over 300 students, we are offering summer camp sessions designed by the students, with the students, and for the students! Dedicated to creating an authentic summer-camp experience, each camper will be challenged to develop strong character, build collaboration skills, and laugh, laugh, laugh. Campers will be greeted, encouraged, and challenged each day by our highly trained counselors. Beginning the day with a flag raising ceremony, skits, songs, and cabin time will set the tone for an interactive day of learning and play, centered around the weekly theme. Midday will be dedicated to lunch, play,and rest. Afternoons will offer more learning and a chance for reflections and teambuilding. Remember to pack your “trunk” as instructed, so you will be ready.
Locations, DropOff, and PickUp: Campers should arrive at their designated camp location on time and may be picked up no later than five minutes after the camp has ended. As all camps will take place on the Founders Campus, the drop off/pick up site will be at the Main Entrance to the School in the Activities Building.
Early Drop Off and Late Pick Up: Early drop off and late pick up will be provided throughout the summer for your convenience. If registered, your camper may be dropped off as early as 7:30 a.m. for the morning camps and be picked up as late as 5:30 p.m. for afternoon camps. If you would like your camper to participate in this early/late program, be sure to select it when you register. The cost is $75 per camper per week.
Refund Policy: May 1 is the deadline to receive a full refund on any cancelled camp. After May 1, there will be a 50% refund until camp begins. Once the camp begins, there will be no refunds. If you would like to change camps, log in to your camp account, cancel the current camp, then register and pay for the new camp. You will be reimbursed for the original camp. If a camp is cancelled by the School, a full refund will be given.
Types of Camps:
Day Camps: Camp Mustang and Camp Mustang Jr. are run by energetic, enthusiastic counselors who will engage with and challenge your child. These day camps are offered for the whole day or before/after another camp.
