Summer is the perfect time for curious and energetic students to try new things. In 2023, we’re offering nearly 100 full-day, half-day, and single-session summer camps (plus lunch, early drop-off, and extended-day care) for children in grades JK-12. General registration is now open!


At Steward’s Summer Experience, old favorites are back and new camps have arrived! Our selection includes academics, athletics, arts, innovation, and traditional camps. Take a look at the calendar or scroll below to see an interactive listing of all camps. 

Our flexible model allows each family to plan the best possible summer for their needs. Whether morning or afternoon sessions only or full days in camp, each parent can plan an engaging and enriching schedule for their camper. We’re proud that our camps draw students from throughout the greater Richmond area; at least 50% of our campers attend other schools during the school year, and we love welcoming them to our conveniently located campus!

Summer Experience FAQ

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • What makes Steward’s summer camps unique?

    The Summer Experience offers many choices for families who want half-day or full-day camp options at a convenient location. In addition to top-notch academic camps, we are proud to offer unusual art camps, at which campers create high-quality pieces; innovation camps in the Bryan Innovation Lab, which is a unique facility in itself; and athletic camps that focus on both fundamentals of the game and good sportsmanship. Our camps are designed to mirror the personal experience of our educational philosophy by providing individual connections with each camper, and our overall summer programming provides a multitude of social, academic, athletic, and artistic opportunities that align with your child’s interests.
  • What is a typical day of camp?

    Our camp schedule is customizable with a variety of morning, afternoon, and full-day options. This model allows each family to plan the best summer for their child.
  • What are the general camp hours?

    • General drop-off 8:30-8:55 a.m. 
    • Morning camp pickup: 12-12:30 p.m.
    • Afternoon camp pickup: 4-4:30 p.m.
      • For those who need additional coverage, early drop-off is available as early as 7:45 a.m., and extended day is available until 6 p.m. Please select "early drop-off" and/or “extended day” during the registration process.
  • My child does not attend Steward during the regular school year. Can they register for the Summer Experience?

    Yes! Steward camps feature a wide range of students from throughout the metro Richmond area and surrounding counties. In the past our camps have attracted approximately 50% non-Steward students.
  • Can I register for camp online?

    All Summer Experience registration takes place online. Click here to register.
  • Can I pay for summer camps with a credit card or by using a student account?

    All online summer camp registrations before June 1, 2023, require a non-refundable $50 deposit per camp with a credit card. After June 1, 2023, deposits will no longer be refundable. Should a conflict occur, registrations may be transferred to an alternate week. Balances may be paid by credit card. Unfortunately, we are not able to process camp registrations through the student account program.
  • How will I know if a camp is full?

    Camps that are full will display “Add to Waitlist” once you enter the registration portal. A camper will not be charged or required to submit a deposit for the waitlist. Should space become available, summer staff will contact you via email, and you will have the option to join the camp or remove your camper from the waitlist. 

    Many families find it helpful to register for a second choice if the primary choice is full. You will have the option to choose which camp your camper attends should space become available. Please reach out to Camps@stewardschool.org with questions regarding the waitlist.
  • I have more than one child who wants to attend a Summer Experience camp. Do I have to submit more than one registration form?

    You will need to complete a profile for each child. If they were a Summer Experience camper in previous summers, your information should be available in your CampBrain account. You are encouraged to review the camper and medical information to ensure that they are up-to-date. Please email camps@stewardschool.org if you are having trouble accessing your account.
