Registration and Confirmation Information

To participate in a Summer Experience camp or class, please visit to register and complete all necessary forms, including medical information.

Registration for the Summer Experience begins on February 1, 2020. Registrations will not be processed without payment. A confirmation email will be sent upon receipt of registration. An informational letter including drop-off and pick-up locations, supply lists (if necessary), and other pertinent information will be sent to campers as the camp approaches. Please keep your receipt. For additional or specific information, please contact the Summer Experience Director Chuck Robinson at

Behavior Policy

We expect all campers to abide by Steward values while on our campus. Campers will act with respect for themselves, their peers, their leaders, and their surroundings. Should the summer staff have concerns about camper behavior, parents will be informed, and campers may be asked to leave. No refunds will be given for individuals who are asked to leave a camp or program because of behavior.

Cancellation of Classes

Due to enhanced safety procedures, camps may be cancelled or moved to an alternate date. If the camp is held, our normal policy applies [camps can be canceled before June 1 for a refund (minus $50 deposit)]. If a camp is canceled, a full refund will be offered or a credit can be applied to a future offering. This can be applied to a camp at a later date in the summer if some early camps are canceled. If the camp is offered virtually/remotely, parents will be able to cancel for a full refund. All cancelations must be submitted no later than three weeks before the camp is scheduled to begin. Camps canceled due to low enrollment will automatically receive a full refund.

Insurance Information

Parents must agree to provide health and accident insurance for the student and to indemnify the school and its personnel against any liability for student accident or health problems.


A $50 non-refundable deposit is required for all Summer Experience programs. Remaining balances must be paid in advance of the start date for the camp. Monthly payment options are available during the registration process, with a final payment date of June 1, 2020.

Early Drop-off/Late Pick-Up

Students may be dropped off for camp no more than 15 minutes prior to the start of camp and picked up no later than half an hour after the end of camp. For those who need early morning coverage, early drop-off is available as early as 7:45 a.m. Please select ‘early drop-off’ during the registration process. Please contact Camp Director Chuck Robinson ( if further care is needed.

Lunch Supervision

Campers participating in an afternoon camp should bring bagged lunches every day, and they will eat in the Dining Commons under the supervision of Steward camp staff.

Photography and Videography

Unless we receive a written letter to the contrary, The Steward School exercises the right to use any photographs and/or video taken of individuals participating in the Summer Experience in its promotional publications and online.

Allergies and Medications

Important notice to parents of campers with allergies: The Steward School camps are NOT peanut, wheat, dairy, or allergen free. We make every reasonable accommodation for campers with allergies. If your child is allergic to certain foods, we ask that you provide a snack each day. If your child is in a camp where cooking or food preparation is part of the curriculum, please discuss your child’s dietary needs with the teacher. Children who require the use of epinephrine for life-threatening emergencies will be asked to keep their devices with them at all times (a small backpack works well). Our license from the Department of Social Services does not permit us to distribute medication of any kind. However, most camp counselors and coaches are trained in CPR and first aid.


If you have any questions about our camps, please email them to One of our friendly camp administrators will get back to you as quickly as possible.
