Wildcat Camp! Friday Childcare Option graphic

When is camp held?

Fridays from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM beginning August 18, 2023. 

Wildcat Camp will NOT be held on Fridays listed as Staff Development days on the 23-24 calendar. Students attending intervention days may go to intervention and report to Wildcat Camp at the completion of intervention time. Please scroll to the bottom to see all official dates for Wildcat Camp Fridays.

How much does camp cost?

The cost to attend on Friday is $15 per student. For those that qualify for free/reduced lunch, the cost to attend is $10 per student. Payment is due each Friday.

A fee of $2 per minute will be charged for picking up students after 5:00 PM.

Payments more than two (2) weeks overdue will result in the student being removed from attending any future Wildcat Camps or the After-School Program.

Will there be food or transportation?

Breakfast and lunch will be served. No buses will be run for Wildcat Camp. All students should be dropped off and picked up at the cafeteria side of the Elementary School.
