Summer Programs


If you have any questions, please email or call the director of the program in which you are interested (individual program pages list directors' contact information). Due to enrollment restrictions, a $50 non-refundable deposit for each program is required with registration to secure placement. Deposits are credited to the student’s final balance. Full payment is due one week prior to the program start date. No refunds will be made for absences or voluntary withdrawals after the start of programs.



Deposits will be applied to the total program(s) costs. Payments are due one week prior to the program start date.


After you have completed the registration process and paid the required deposit, you will receive a registration confirmation from the school within two weeks. If you do not receive confirmation within this time frame, please contact: . Without this confirmation, enrollment is not guaranteed.


Please note that deposits are non-refundable. Tuition refunds will be made when written notification of withdrawal is received by the Friday before the start of the program.


Financial aid is available to families currently receiving financial aid from their school or based on financial need. To be considered, complete the application process by March 15th. Indicate on the registration form that you are applying for financial aid.


Lunch is not provided, so students should bring a bag lunch and beverage that does not require refrigeration or heating. We recognize that peanut allergies represent a health and safety hazard, which can have serious consequences for those who have such an allergy. In order to protect these students and staff from an environment that may be harmful to them because of such an allergy, all nuts and peanuts, including products that use or contain nuts and peanuts or use peanut oils, are prohibited from entering school grounds and buses and should not be part of any lunch.


Each student must have a parent or legal guardian complete the health form in conjunction with a physician. In addition, all prescription medication taken by a student must be listed on the health form. Medication must be dispensed by the camp nurse and must be in a pharmacy-labeled container with a form signed by the student’s physician authorizing the administration.


Although an unpleasant topic, lice epidemics are present in many schools. ECF Summer Programs makes every effort to keep the programs lice free. If a child has lice, his/her group will be checked as well as any siblings or bus children that have come in contact with the child. Head checks are carefully and sensitively conducted. ECF Summer Programs has a No Live Lice policy—children cannot return to the program until they are lice free. It is imperative that any child who has been treated for live lice have a second treatment seven days later to address any live lice resulting from nits. Controlling lice is an arduous process. The best prevention is for all children to start the program lice free. Please check your child thoroughly before the start of the program. If you discover lice at any time during the program, please report it to the program director immediately. Early detection will help us to control a program- wide epidemic. Upon request, we would be happy to furnish parents with information on lice detection and prevention.


Trip Release: A trip release form is required for your child to go on trips. It will be sent home or emailed to you at the beginning of the program.
