Summit has been the summer destination for local families for over 20 years – and we missed summer campers at the school last year because of the pandemic! Summit’s 2021 summer camp team has re-imagined Summit’s summer camps and they will be better than ever! Summit continues to offer the academic camps we are known for, as well as week-long outdoor themed camps to pique your child(ren)’s interest and keep them active. As always, Summit’s summer camps will be safe – and fun! Camps run June 7-July 30. Full-day or morning-only camps offered; before/after day care is available. 

2021 note: Summit is following the guidelines of the Linn County Public Health and CDC during the pandemic requiring face masks/shields and social distancing for the safety of our students and staff. Class sizes will be limited. Camp requirements will be determined before summer camp begins and shared with registered families.
