Discoveries & Adventures and Junior Summer Day Camp (Campers in Preschool – Grade 4)

Dear Families,

Welcome to Summer Connections (SC) 2018! We are looking forward to an exciting and engaging summer full of fun and exploration! Our faculty and staff are eager to meet our newest campers and welcome back our SC family. We hope to make your child’s transition into the summer program a smooth one. This summer will be filled with adventures in art, music, movement, sports, culture, and memories for years to come! We can’t wait to get started!

Week 1 (June 25 – June 29) we will be learning about North America as part of our Passports around the World program.

Ms. Lisa Brown, Director of Discoveries and Adventures

Enrichment, Scholars & Immersives Campers

Drop-Off and Pick-Up:

Drop-off and pick-up take place at Upper Campus, near Umpleby Hall. Please do not drop off before 8:00 AM. For the first day of each week, there are new parents discovering our campus. We advise you leave a few extra minutes to navigate the campus.

  • Parking is available in the lots on Upper Campus.
  • Please click here for a campus map.
  • Please review all procedures with the person who is responsible for picking up and dropping off your child.

Help us keep our campers safe. Enrichment, Scholars and Immersives Families are asked to enter campus from our N. Woodland entrance. It is important to know we strongly discourage the drop-off of children on the public streets, especially the southern side of E. Palisade Ave. or N. Woodland St. The safety of our students are our utmost priority; crossing busy streets to enter campus during morning hours in particular is a concern. And we suggest parents/guardians to allow for a bit of extra time and patience during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up of your children throughout the summer here at the D-E SummerConnections program.
