2.       When does Summer Day Camp begin?

Our day camp is open Monday – Friday, 7:30am – 6:00pm, beginning on June 9 and ending on August 15.  The only exception is that we will be closed on July 4th for Independence Day!  Enjoy that time with your family!!

3.       Will meals be provided for my child?

4.       What about a planned vacation?  Do I still have to pay for that week?

 No.  You will not be penalized for spending time with your family.  Please make sure we are notified in advance.

5.       What is The Salvation Army?

 The Salvation Army is an international movement and an evangelical branch of the world-wide Christian Church. Working in over 150 different nations, The Salvation Army has been ministering in the Tri-City area since 1951 by meeting both the physical and spiritual needs of those in our community. Basically, we are grateful for the love and blessings we have received from God and we want to share those good things with others.

6.       What is the cost of Summer Day Camp?

Tuition for Summer Day Camp is $120.00 per week, with a $20 registration fee ($40 registration fee for families with more than two children).  A discounted rate is given for more than one child registered in the program.  Tuition includes all supervised activities at The Salvation Army, field trips, transportation, crafts, a t-shirt, snacks, and more.

A limited number of scholarships will be available based upon need.  A completed scholarship application, along with one month’s worth of consecutive paycheck stubs needs to be turned in by May 5, 2014, to determine scholarship needs.

In addition to the weekly tuition, each child is required to purchase a season pass to Swanson Pool at Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles. Passes are $60.00 for residents and $78.00 for non-residents.  Family discounts are available and scholarships may be available.  Contact the St. Charles Park District for more information at (630)513-4377.

The last thing your child will need is a valid public library card in their own name.  These can be obtained for free from your local branch.
