WHY ST. RICHARD’S SUMMER CAMP!
St. Richard’s summer camp is the place to be during the summer! The goal of SRES summer camp is to provide opportunities for children to try new activities, socialize, learn and practice skills, and have fun. Our summer camp program reflects the school’s values by designing weeklong camps rooted in learning. We also recognize that summer is a time for children to relax and explore new adventures. We value the individual interests of each child, allowing each camper the opportunity to experience success. Weekly sessions provide children with enriching activities and give you peace of mind that their summer will be spent in a nurturing and safe environment. Our trained summer administrative staff designs all activities and field trips with your camper in mind.
Please keep in mind that many of our camps have minimum and maximum enrollment numbers. Enrollment is on a first-come first-served basis and cannot be reserved without a completed camp enrollment form and enrollment deposit. In the event that a camp reaches maximum capacity, your child will be placed on a waiting list. Enrollment for all camps closes one week prior to the start of camp. Although we will do our best to accommodate everyone, space cannot be guaranteed. Checks made out to St. Richard’s Episcopal School should be mailed to St. Richard’s Summer Camp at 33 E. 33rd Street Indianapolis, IN 46205. Enrollment forms and pricing information are available at www.sresdragons.org
