Summer Fun at Coastal Day School

We can't believe that summer is just around the corner! Our staff is Pinteresting their hearts out, determined to make this the absolute best summer ever here at Coastal Day School!!! We have so many amazing field trips planned, along with super fun activities and games here at CDS! We are confident that your child will have a blast! 

Our Summer Camp Program is for any rising Kindergarten student through Middle School. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:30am until 6pm. We offer a two-day (Tuesday and Thursday), three-day (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), and five-day option. Our full day camp is separated into two age groups. Our younger group is for children ages five years to seven years and our older group is for children ages eight years and older. Our older group goes on a field trip every day through the summer and our younger group goes on four field trips each week and also has a special guest one day each week. All field trip fees are included in your weekly tuition! Some examples of field trips offered are Jungle Rapids Water Park, movies, parks, pools, bowling, splash pad, museums, WonderWorks, and more!!! While at Coastal Day School, campers will enjoy fun activities such as cupcake wars, game show fun, crazy water games, and tons more!!! We love seeing sweet friendships form and getting to see campers enjoy all the activities our staff has spent months planning.

We also offer an exciting, half-day program for our current preschool students ages three to five years. If we have any open spaces after May 15, 2018, we will open those spaces up to new families. Click here for more information about our Summer Preschool Program. This program has a greater focus on our weekly themes but we still offer fun, academic based activities as well! We plan fun water days and special treats throughout the summer that your child will love! If you are a new family that enrolls in our Summer Preschool Program after May 15th, it will look very different from our regular fall programs. We do not offer an Orientation or Open House for our summer programs as it is a more relaxed and smaller setting. If you have any questions along the way, we are here to answer those and help make it an easy transition for your child. 

If you are interested in registering your child for one of our summer programs, please click on the link above for registration forms. You are free to pick any weeks you want as well as pick the number of days you'd like each week (two-day option is Tuesday and Thursday, three-day option is Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and we also have a five-day option-we do not offer a daily option in the summer.) We do not have a minimum on the number of weeks your child attends and you only pay for the weeks you register for!! Please keep in mind that once you have turned in a registration form, we cannot make changes to the dates you've registered for and you will be required to pay for the dates reserved, regardless of attendance. We provide a quality program with a low student/teacher ratio and awesome field trips that usually require prepayment (we've actually already paid for some of them) so when we hold a space for a child, it is important that we receive payment for that space in order to continue providing all the fun activities we do daily. We feel badly when plans change and parents are still expected to pay for the weeks they have reserved, but please understand that we cannot make any exceptions to this policy in order to be able to keep our camp open and functioning. If multiple parents ask each week to make changes to what they have reserved, it would severely affect our ability to continue to operate as it is very difficult to fill spaces last minute when parents have already made other plans for their children once our program is full. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support in this area. We know that it can be a struggle when funds are tight so please make sure to only reserve weeks you know you will need. 

We really hope your child(ren) will be joining us for a fun-filled summer here at CDS! We are excited to see our returning campers and meet new families and provide them with a safe and exciting summer camp. I know how scary it can be sending your child off to camp, especially on field trips, but our staff takes our campers' safety very seriously and we work diligently to ensure your child is well taken care of. Our staff has been trained to obsessively count campers (I mean really OBSESSIVELY-we count in our sleep during the summer-true story 😆) and monitor their group very closely. We are so grateful for such an amazing staff that truly loves our campers! If you have any questions, please feel free to email our Summer Camp Director, Veronnica, at or contact us by phone at 910.383.3919. If you would like to register your child, please feel free to stop by Monday through Friday between 10am and noon or 1pm and 3pm or call us to schedule an earlier or later time that works for you! We will not be available to accept registration on Friday, March 30th or the week of April 2-5, 2018.

We are looking forward to another amazing summer!!
