Summer Day Camp

Summer 2020 Registration Information

UPDATE: Due to the current circumstances, we will be holding off on summer day camp and summer specialty camp registration until a definite school calendar has been established.

We know many families are beginning to think about their summer plans, and while we would love to get you all of the details now, we are working hard to line everything up to make for a wicked fun summer!

Here are the details we can provide . . .
  • Summer Camp 2020 will run June 22 through August 14 (subject to change based on school's final end date). Please note that there will not be additional care available between August 14 and when school begins in late August – early September.
  • The Summer 2020 brochure with basic camp information will be available online at the beginning of March. Printed copies will be available in our office shortly thereafter.
  • Detailed schedule with trips will be available no later than Friday, May 1.
  • Summer day camp registration will begin Tuesday, April 7. Online registration will be open for those paying in full for all 8 weeks (K-5: 3-day or 5-day; Middle School: 5-day only) or for individual weeks (5-day option only all grades). Prices will be available in the Brochure. 
  • If you are planning to register with a payment plan (available for all 8 weeks only), you will be required to register in the Community Services Office, pay the $150 deposit, and set up the payments with a chosen debit or credit card.

Summer Day Camp 2019

Registration for full 8-week program options began Tuesday, March 19! 
Individual week registrations begin Tuesday, April 2.

Scarborough Community Services welcomes new and past campers to Summer Day Camp 2019.  We are looking forward to providing a safe environment where everyone can make new friends, explore and develop new skills, and simply have lots of fun! Art and gym activities, theme programming, and field trips will take place throughout the summer for students entering Grades K to 5. For students entering Grades 6 to 8, this eight-week program offers a wide variety of daily activities and numerous trips throughout the summer to places like Sebago Lake, Funtown/Splashtown, a Sea Dogs game, paintball, and whitewater rafting. Please register early as space is limited! 

Please be sure to review our Parent Survival Guide for detailed information on our Summer Day Camp programs.

Registration Process for Summer 2019

If you are choosing to pay in full for the entire summer or register for individual weeks, both options will be available via online registration and payment. Payment plans may be set up for registrations into all 8-week programs but must be completed in the Community Services Office. Payment plans will require a minimum deposit, or you may pay more down if you would like smaller weekly payments. Payment plans will run every Friday from June 21 through August 9.  As always, everyone still has the option to register in person using a valid debit card, cash, or check. EFT payments plans will no longer be available.

Please Note:  With our new installment billing system, we are only able to withdraw funds from one debit or credit card per child -- we cannot split one child’s bills between two cards. Households with two or more children setting up payment plans may connect a different card to each child, if they choose to.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR CHILD CARE FAMILIES: If you child is currently in the child care program and you pay for that service monthly or bi-monthly, you will need to remove your child care billing from your shopping cart before paying for summer services. Removing the fees will not affect your enrollment in the program. If you do not remove them, the online system will be looking for full payment, which will result in overpayment, as your EFT will continue as normal.

Online registration begins Tuesday, March 19, for 8-week programs and Tuesday, April 2, for individual weeks.

General Registration Info: If registering in person, please come prepared to update the following household information in our system: Home, work, and cell phone numbers, email addresses, emergency contacts (besides parents), child’s name, birthdate, grade, allergies, medications, doctor and dentist names and phone numbers. Online registrations will also require updating this information. It is important that you accurately answer these questions so that staff are aware of any allergies, medical conditions, or medications for the children in their care.
