Summer Camp

General Information

Camp Overview

This year, Merritt Academy has designed a special 10-week experience to keep our campers safe, engaged and entertained all summer long! For the very first time, families will have the option to choose between our traditional themed summer camp and a brand new classroom camp program.

Health and Safety

As we prepare for the summer, Merritt Academy remains deeply committed to protecting the health and well-being of our entire camp community. Pursuant to CDC guidance, we have enacted sweeping changes this year. In addition to daily health checks, active air filtration, routine cleaning and social distancing protocols, we will be introducing longer, 2-week program sessions to limit your child’s exposure to other campers.

Program Options

Summer Camp

This is our traditional summer day camp filled with creative activities, outdoor play, daily swimming and special events. This year’s theme is “We Got This”, a summer survival adventure with stops around the world – and beyond! Our summer camp program is open to rising 1st through 8th grade students.

NEW PROGRAM! Classroom Camp

New for 2021, we are proud to introduce a program combining academic enrichment with classic summer fun. Participating campers will attend collaborative lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays, work on grade-specific skills on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and enjoy project-based learning activities on Fridays. After their morning studies, campers will resume an afternoon full of play, laughter and poolside fun.

Additional Details

The Merritt Academy Summer Camp hours will now be 7:00am – 3:30pm.  This allows us to have extra time in the morning and evenings to more thoroughly clean and disinfect items each day.

We are implementing all new cleaning procedures for summer camp. All shared areas will be fully sanitized between classes. These areas include the playground, gym and pavilion. All classrooms and shared items will be thoroughly cleaned each evening.
