Online registration for Duke School's 2015 summer camps will be available beginning late January. 

Camps are offered for children and youth between the ages of 4-15. Register your child based on their age as of June 1, 2015. If your child's birthday is near the cut-off date and you are interested in registering, please email us at camps@dukeschool.org.

Payment Policies:
Our on-line registration system accepts Visa and Mastercard. If you prefer to pay by another method, you must register in person at Duke School. We cannot hold your child's space in camp until we have received payment. 
Camp deposits are 35% per camp, and are non-refundable. Full and final payment for camp is due no later than June 1. Registrations submitted after June 1, must be paid in full at the time of registration.

Cancellation and Refund Policy:
When you register for camp, you will be asked to pay at least 35% of the camp fees as a deposit. This deposit is non-refundable. Should you decide to cancel your registration before June 1, Duke School will reimburse funds paid in excess of the deposit. You must request this cancellation in writing before June 1. After June 1, no refunds will be given and full payment is due. Tuition payments lost due to withdrawal from a program may not be transferred to a sibling or applied to a program offered outside of the current summer season. Duke School reserves the right to cancel any camp based on enrollment or other circumstances. Should Duke School cancel a program in which your child is enrolled, you will be offered a 100% refund or credit toward another camp. Duke School reserves the right to change or modify camp activities due to weather or other circumstances.
Changes in registration:
All changes in camp registration (other than adding weekly aftercare) will incur a $25 administrative fee. If changes to registration are made more than one time, multiple administrative fees will apply. No scheduling changes may be made within two weeks of the camp start date.

Camper  Expectations:
We expect campers to demonstrate respect toward all camp staff members and fellow campers at all times while attending Duke School camps. We expect campers to act responsibility, be kind to others, and follow simple instructions. While we offer great programs for most children, we recognize that we may not be the best camp or have the right supports in place for all children, especially those who require special medical, behavioral, or social support.
If you have questions about whether Duke School offers the right camp experience and supports for your child, please e-mail us at camps@dukeschool.org.
Attendance at summer camp is contingent upon your child's ability to exhibit and maintain acceptable standards of behavior and citizenship. There is no refund if a camper is asked to leave camp due to behavioral problems or for disobeying camp policies. 

Preschool Campers:
All preschool campers must be potty trained before attending camp or aftercare. There are no exceptions to this policy.

Drop off, pick up, and what to bring:
All families will receive an email approximately two weeks before the start date of camp, which will include a campus map, the camp location, details on drop off and pick up and what to bring for camp.

How do I reach camp staff members during the day?
