Summer Programs

June 11-August 3, 2018

Summit proudly offers academic camps, themed camps, and healthy life & recreation camps for eight weeks during the summer for PreK-8th grade students. Summit's camps are known in the community for their high-quality programming, with more local partnerships and STEAM-based themes than ever before! As always, all Summit camps are taught by a certified teacher and classes are kept small to provide an optimum learning environment.
Summer programs are open to all children in the Cedar Rapids metro area.


You can register up to the Thursday before the summer camp start date - so it's not too late to join in on the fun!


New in 2018:

  • Camps for students going into 7th and 8th grades.

  • Traveling Writers' Workshop for that budding young writer, grades 5-8.

  • Photography camp that includes a walk-in camera.

  • Community partnerships include Kid-Powered Kindess (making a difference right here in our community) and the ISU Extension and Outreach (coding and more!). 


We would like to share a few tips and tricks to make registration easier:

  • Registration fee for non-Summit students is $25. This is not automatically charged when you check out - families must manually add this session option to their cart during registration. Please select REQUIRED REGISTRATION FEE in Active to add this fee to your summer camp order.

  • Register your child based on the grade they will be entering in the 2018/19 academic year.

  • Students who are registered for a morning and afternoon camp within the same week are invited to stay for FREE supervised lunch and recess between 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Students should bring a sack lunch that does not require heating or cooling. Please note that lunch is not provided and students must be registered for both a morning and afternoon camp.

  • Before and after camp extended day care for students is available through pre-purchase only. This is also considered a “Session Option” (listed within the session) of Online Registration. 
    **All extended day care MUST be pre-purchased. 

    • AM Extended Day Care 7:15-8:30 a.m.: $25.00/week

    • PM Extended Day Care 3:30-5:30 p.m.: $40.00/week

    • AM & PM Extended Day Care
      7:15-8:30 a.m. & 3:30-5:30 p.m.: $62.50/week


  • In case of an emergency, “Drop-ins” will only be accepted if spots are available in accordance with DHS guidelines and must be paid for upon drop-off or pick-up.

  • There are NO CAMPS Wednesday, July 4 in honor of Independence Day.

  • Half of total summer tuition is due upon registration. The other half will be auto-billed May 14, 2018

  • Registrations completed after May 14 will be charged in full.

  • Camps will be confirmed the week of May 7. Notice of cancelled camps (due to insufficient enrollment) will be sent to the e-mail provided during registration. Camps cancelled by Summit will be refunded in full. 

  • Waitlists are held until enough registrations have been collected to open an additional section(s) and staffing has been secured.  

  • Cancellations made prior to confirmation letters being sent home (the week of May 7) are nearly refunded in full. Summit will retain 5 percent of your total registration costs (this covers the cost we incur for online registration). After confirmation letters have been sent, refunds are issued at 50 percent of the total registration. NO REFUNDS are issued after May 28, 2018.

  • Are you a Summit alum or local middle/high schooler who loves working with kids and wants to volunteer in a fun Summer Camp setting over the summer? Summit is actively recruiting student leaders to be a STAR (Student Teacher Assistant Rockstar) during our Summer Camps June 11-August 3.

If you have any questions, contact our Summer Camp Director Shannon Salmon.

  • "Both my boys looked forward to summer camp each day and were sad it when it ended!"

  • ​"Chess and coding were wonderful! I also loved hearing about the time travel class.​"

  • "My child has participated in various camps this summer and her experience at Summit was by far the most enjoyable & educational. She came home excited every day to tell us all she had learned. It made me wish she came home from school like this throughout the year. Thank you for providing such a fun learning environment for kids in our community!"

  • "My daughter really enjoyed the classes even when she didn't think she would, thank you!"

  • "Summit Schools is a wonderful way to keep my child busy in the summertime. Thank you.​"
