Summer Camp FAQ

What to expect at a Writing Symphony Camp



What is your daily schedule?

  • 8 AM Campers may arrive as early as 8am for open play and instructor-led games during extended care. Please note that this is an additional charge.

  • 9 AM Our camps begin with an all-camp game or warm-up activity. We use this time to help campers get their wiggles out, wake up their brains and interact with one another in a collaborative, screen-free setting.

  • 9:30 AM Campers head to their academic classes and work with their instructors until lunchtime.

  • 12 PM Lunchtime is from 12 - 12:30 followed by our daily 21st Century Activity. Campers will learn about a different 21st Century Skill and practice with a group game or beat-the-clock challenge. We’ll have tons of fun while we put our collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving skills to the test.

  • 1 PM Students return to their academic classes until 3:15. Each day, we wrap up with a group discussion to reflect on campers’ learning outcomes and goals for the week.

  • 3:30 PM Campers are picked-up or can opt for extended care until 5:30 PM.

What to bring

What should my child bring to camp?

Your child should come to camp with a notebook, pen and pencil. We’ll provide all necessary instructional materials. We also recommend sending your camper with a snack and water bottle each day. Campers may bring their own lunches or purchase one for $8/day.


How is lunch handled?

We encourage students to bring their own lunch. Campers will have access to a fridge, hot/cold filtered water and microwave for heating food. We also provide lunch for an additional fee of $8/day. Lunch includes a main entree, fruit or veggie and drink (juice or water). If you purchase lunch, please make sure to let our staff know of any dietary restrictions. For more detail on our lunch options, please e-mail us at for a copy of our latest menu.

Cancellation & REFUND Policy

What if I need to cancel my camp?

Please be aware that once your camper has attended the first day of camp, we are unable to issue a refund. Cancellations made within 1 month of the camp start date will not receive a refund. We are always happy to reschedule your camp to another session during the summer.

If Writing Symphony cancels a camp, you will receive a full refund.
