Summer 2019

We cannot believe that summer is just around the corner!!! The last few months have flown by. Here at CDS, we talk all the time about how we feel like we lost a whole month because of the hurricane this year and we feel like we've been trying to catch up ever since. We are so happy to finally have all our summer information ready to go and we are getting SO excited about hanging out with your kiddos all summer! Our staff has been working tirelessly to plan the best summer yet with awesome daily field trips and fun games!!! 

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. All field trip fees are included in your weekly tuition! Some examples of field trips offered are Jungle Rapids Water Park (TWICE this summer!!), movies, parks, pools, bowling, splash pad, WonderWorks, and more!!! While at Coastal Day School, campers will enjoy fun activities such as crazy water games, silly dry games, arts and crafts, 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 two to five years. If we have any open spaces after May 15, 2019, we will open those spaces up to new families enrolled with us for next school year. Click here for more information about our half-day 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 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 were to 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 about our full-day Summer Camp Program, please feel free to email our Summer Camp Director, Veronnica, at If you have any questions about our half-day Summer Preschool Program, please feel free to email our Program Director, Caroline, at You can also 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 Friday, April 19-Friday, April 26, 2019.

We are looking forward to another amazing summer!!
