Ballestrini's Summer Camp 2024 

 

Get ready for an unforgettable summer full of laughter, adventures, and new friendships! We are thrilled to announce that our Summer Camp will kick off on June 17th and run until August 23rd. This exclusive program is designed for all children in the Pre-K and School Age programs. Don't miss the chance to secure your child's spot by registering before April 1st! This is the only program we offer in the summer. 

Register by April 1st to secure your child’s place in the program! The summer camp weekly rates are as follows:

 

Field Trips: Our field trips are aligned with weekly learning themes, promising a well-rounded and educational experience for your child. Transportation and admission costs are covered in the field trip fee. Field trips are open to children ages 5-12, with 3 & 4-year-olds attending with director approval.

 

Beach trips: Picture your child enjoying the sun, sand, and sea at Pleasure Beach in Waterford! These beach trips are a highlight of our summer program. Preschoolers visit in the mornings, and school-age children take their turn in the afternoons. Safety is our priority with two lifeguards on duty and attentive staff ensuring a day of fun and relaxation. Preschool age children are not allowed in the water past their knees. Typically all children attend the beach trips. To ensure comfort and convenience, especially when using the bathroom, we recommend girls wear two-piece swimsuits. This way, our little beachgoers won't have the hassle of removing wet shirts while enjoying the sun, sand, and sea.

 

T-Shirts:  Each child will receive a mandatory camp T-shirt. Additional shirts can be purchased for $15, and swim shirts are available for $35. Wearing these shirts during field trips, including beach trips, is essential to show group affiliation and safeguard against sun exposure.. 

 

Sunscreen:  Safety first! We'll provide sunscreen for afternoon re-application, but we ask parents to apply the first coat each morning. Please complete the attached sunscreen form for our records.

 

Water fun days: Tuesdays will be water fun days, so send your child in WEARING a bathing suit and water shoes. Don't forget to pack a towel and a change of clothing for an extra splash of excitement!

 

Lunches:  Lunches should be packed in disposable bags, labeled with your child's name, and include a drink and silverware. We don't allow heat-ups in the summer, so keep it cool and refreshing!

 

Water bottles: Help your child stay hydrated by sending in a refillable water bottle daily. It's a simple yet crucial way to beat the summer heat. 

 

We can't wait to embark on this summer journey with your child. If your little one will be arriving late or absent, please let us know by 9:00 am. Thank you for choosing our Summer Camp for an extraordinary season of fun and discovery!
