  • A summer experience to remember

Summer is the perfect time for curious and energetic students to try new things. In 2022, we’re offering more than 80 full-day, half-day, and single-session summer camps (plus early drop-off and extended-day care) for children in grades JK-12. 

At the Steward Summer Experience, old favorites are back and new camps have arrived! Our camps include academics, athletics, arts, innovation, and traditional camps. Download the brochure or at-a-glance calendar.

Check out the new offerings for 2022:
  • Archery
  • Cardboard Creations
  • Claymation
  • Paint and Pottery
  • And many more...
This summer will also feature an update to the lunch offerings and new Parent-Child evening workshops (check out page 27 of the brochure!). 

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

We invite you to explore the complete list of our camps week-by-week and full descriptions of each camp, including pricing, which will be available in the coming weeks. Please contact Camps@stewardschool.org with any questions or review the Frequently Asked Questions below. We are thrilled to offer a robust, in-person summer camp program and know that 2022 will be an exciting year for campers of all ages! 

Summer Experience FAQ

List of 9 frequently asked questions.

  • What makes Steward’s summer camps different from other programs in the Richmond area?

    The Summer Experience offers many choices for families who want half-day or full-day camp options in a convenient location. In addition to top-notch academic camps, we are proud to offer unique art camps, at which campers create high-quality pieces; innovation camps in the Bryan Innovation Lab, which is a one-of-a-kind facility in itself; and top-notch athletic camps for all ages. Our camps are designed to mirror the personal experience of our educational philosophy, where we connect individually with each camper. Our camps provide many social, academic, athletic, and artistic opportunities that align with your child’s interests.
  • 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. Your child is guaranteed to have a great summer. In the past, our camps have featured approximately 50% non-Steward students.
  • How can I receive a Summer Experience brochure in the mail?

    Please contact the Coordinator of Auxiliary Programs Chuck Robinson at Charles.Robinson@stewardschool.org or (804) 740-3394, ext. 6529 with your address to receive a Summer Experience brochure via the U.S. mail.
  • Can I register for camp online?

    All registration for summer camps 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, 2022, require a non-refundable $50 deposit per camp with a credit card. 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?

    During registration, you will enter your child’s birthdate and rising grade level. At that point, the available camp options will be populated as choices. Camps that are full will display “Waitlisting.” 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 option your camper attends should space become available in the primary option. Please reach out to charles.robinson@stewardschool.org with questions regarding the waitlist.
  • Can I call or email the Summer Experience staff to reserve a spot without submitting a registration form and payment?

    Unfortunately, we cannot reserve any spaces in our camps or classes. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis via online registration.
  • 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 you 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.
  • COVID-19 Policy

    Should it be warranted based on guidance, the Steward Summer Experience will include an updated version of the COVID-19 Peace of Mind policy designed to give parents the peace of mind to plan their summer. All camps will feature safety protocols that match or exceed CDC/local guidelines.
    • 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 by the school, 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. This is our normal policy.
    • If a camper is unable to attend due to a positive exposure or positive test result for COVID-19, a full refund will be issued. 
    A parent or guardian may cancel the registration, due to concerns, for a full refund (less 8% administration fee). This fee is to offset fees charged to the Summer Experience by processing companies/vendors. These policies may be amended based on guidance and our desire to present a safe and fun Summer Experience to each individual camper. Policies will be communicated in monthly camp updates.
