Hornet Family Study Care Day Camp

This free childcare option for children ages 6 through 15 occurs on certain Saturdays on campus and is designed to give eligible students more time to study. Locations vary; please verify the location prior to drop-off. Staff are experienced working with children ages 6 through teens.

Children will be provided with breakfast, lunch, and snacks throughout the day. They will participate in group activities that are designed to be fun, social, and help them see the campus. Each day will have a different theme and feature a hands-on art project, as well as physical activity. Day camp is supposed to be fun and promote learning and social interaction but is not supposed to feel like school.

Parents will be asked to fill out forms (emergency information, contact information, allergies, medical info) at the initial drop off.

Day camps are hosted at 9 am - 3 pm. Your child does not have to attend the entire time. These camps are drop off care intended to be convenient for you. Student-parents are asked to stay on campus to study while your children are in our care.
