Summer Camp Overview

Turtle Rock Summer Camp is available for children who have completed Kindergarten through 3rd grade. Each week offers a unique theme and program. You may enroll for the whole summer or individual weeks.

Programming is the heart of any camp. We pride ourselves on offering fun, creative activities and field trips that are developed to meet the changing needs of today’s campers. Each age group program is developmentally appropriate and designed to offer variety for our returning campers. With each themed week your child will experience a new adventure every day.

Our core camp day session is from 9AM – 4PM, and an extended day option is available from 7AM – 6PM for those needing additional hours.

Explorers

Completed Kindergarten

For some of our youngest campers, this may be their first time at Camp. We find that offering lots of on–site activities and easing them into select off-site age appropriate field trips helps give them the confidence to experience each adventure to its fullest.

A detailed Explorers calendar is available for download here in PDF format.

Adventurers

Completed 1st thru 3rd grade

We know the energy is endless with this group and so are their interests. Activities, excursions, and field trips for our Adventurers are developed to meet their varied spirits for exploration and risk.

Camp Basics

Each day and week will be a new experience for campers!

Check the whiteboard and door daily for updates and information regarding the following day. Parents will receive a weekly “This Week at Summer Camp” email bulletin summarizing the week ahead, as daily electronic notifications via the Remind app.

Our Morning Meeting begins at 9:00 am (unless there is an early field trip). It is important for your child to be there to know what to expect for the day.

Your child must wear his or her Turtle Rock Summer Camp shirt every day, whether or not he or she participates in a field trip. Campers may leave campus at anytime for impromptu nearby excursions. Please label ALL personal belongings with your child’s name.

Camp Store and Dollars: Your child will earn camp dollars for a variety of reasons: being kind, being a good helper, homework, and remembering key facts from field trips and visitor presentations. Every Friday, campers will get an opportunity to go to the Camp Store and spend their money, or save it for bigger items the following week.

Beach / Pool / Water Play days are always on Mondays! Your child must come dressed in his or her bathing suit. Towels are needed and water shoes are highly recommended! Sunscreen is required for each camper. Please bring in a bottle with a completed Sunscreen Authorization form. Please, no spray sunscreens.

“Homework” consists of fun riddles and problem-solving puzzles that are posted on the board every Monday. Campers have until the Morning Meeting on Friday to submit them, and earn camp dollars for correct answers. Parent help is okay, but students cannot share answers with other campers or siblings. Homework is always optional at camp.

FAQ

How do I know which age category my child falls into?

Children are placed into groups based on their grade level, with exceptions made when appropriate.

Explorers: Completed Kindergarten
Adventurers: Completed 1st Grade – Completed 3rd Grade

What should my child wear to camp each day?

Your child must wear his or her Turtle Rock Camp T-Shirt every day and should dress in cool/comfortable summer clothes with closed-toed shoes. Please put sunscreen on your child before arriving in the morning. Complete a Sunscreen Application Authorization Form, available in the office or online, and send a labeled bottle of sunscreen to school for us to re-apply sunscreen later in the day.

What are optional excursions?

On-site visitors and certain standard field trips are included in weekly tuition rates. We also offer certain Premium Optional Excursions for an additional fee that are available on a limited first-come, first-served basis for age-appropriate children. These excursions range in price depending upon the activity. Those not participating will still have a fun-filled day on campus.

What lunch options are available for my camper?

A freshly prepared hot lunch is normally available for purchase when campers are on-site. Excursions and field trips occasionally include lunch, or we may ask you to send a sack lunch, or have your child bring cash to purchase lunch. Specific options and instructions are described under each excursion on our registration portal and parents will be reminded via our website and Remind app. If bringing a lunch from home, it must be brought each day in a disposable Ziploc or paper bag (not a lunch box) with your child’s name and the date clearly marked. Snacks are provided by Camp.

How do I sign-up?

Registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis via our online registration portal only. Online registration begins at 10 AM on Monday, March 6. Spaces are limited, and camp does sell out every year. Early registration is encouraged to avoid any disappointment. Enrollment is accepted only when you complete the online checkout process fully, and acknowledge and agree to our terms and conditions.

Are there any refunds or credits for days that my child is sick or absent?

Please notify the office at (949) 854-7611 by 8 AM if your child will be absent. Unfortunately, camp activities are booked in advance based on the registrations received, so we are unable to provide credits or refunds for days missed due to sickness or for any other reason.

What should my child wear and bring to camp on water activity days?

On water activity or beach/pool days (indicated on the calendar with a water drop icon ) please send your child to school with a towel, wearing his or her bathing suit, and with sunscreen already applied. Rash guards with the Turtle Rock logo are required for any off-site water activities and may be purchased for $18. For better sun protection, we suggest baseball caps or other hats with brims. Your child is required to bring a backpack on these days containing a change of clothes, a towel, and sandals or water shoes. All items must be clearly marked with your child’s name.

How many weeks must I sign-up for?

You may enroll for as little as one week, or any number of weeks you choose, depending upon availability. Select the schedule that’s right for your family.

How can I pay for Summer Camp?

Our online registration portal offers easy payment by credit card. You may also choose to pay by check to the office. Check payments must be received within 5 days. There are no refunds or changes allowed, regardless of reason. Activities and excursions are subject to change.

Are any discounts available for Summer Camp?

We do not offer sibling or any other discounts for our summer programs.
