Summer Camp

Hello 5th Grade Families!

We want to make you aware of a fun opportunity for your children this summer…Summer Camp at SCIS! We are offering a mixed section for students in grades 3-5. Our non-academic setting provides our campers with the opportunity to meet new friends and hone leadership skills, while engaged in activities such as art, cooking, drama, dance, sports, water play, field trips, and much more. See our website for a closer look at enrollment options and our weekly themes this summer, please note you can choose your enrollment option based on the week or weeks you are interested in. Our enrollment closes on May 31st so there is still time to take advantage of all the summer fun. Please email with any questions.
