Registration opens for MCS Summer Camps at Columbia, Heritage and Mill Creek elementaries

MADISON – Youngsters can forget about dreary days of late winter and focus their sights to sunny days at Summer Camp 2021 that Madison City Schools is planning.

The MCS Summer Camp Program provides an exciting and enriching schedule of activities during summer break. The camps offer a safe and pleasant environment. (madisoncity.k12.al.us)

Columbia, Heritage and Mill Creek elementary schools will host Summer Camp 2021.

Registration is now open. Camps will open on June 1 and end on July 23. Registration is open to MCS students who will enter kindergarten through sixth grade for the 2021-2022 school year.

This year’s camp is open only on full-time basis. Part-time and drop-in services are not available this year.

The camp day runs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. 3. After 6 p.m., the parent or guardian will be charged a fee of $1 per child/per minute.

Early registration will run through May 1. Fee for early registration is $150 per child (non-refundable). With late registration, the fee increases to $180. Rates for weekly tuition are $140, one child; $210, two children; and $270, three children. Registration and first week’s tuition are due by May 1.

To register, visit madisoncity.k12.al.us. At the top right of the page, click “OUR SCHOOLS +” and scroll to click “Mill Creek Elementary.” (Currently, only Mill Creek has camp information.) On Mill Creek’s home page, scroll and click “Summer Camp.” On the camp page, click “Summer Camp Packet.” Then scroll to pages 5 and 6 for the registration forms.

Parents must deliver registration paperwork and payment to school that is hosting the camp.

Each child can have a one-week vacation without fees. Parents must communicate vacation plans in writing to the Camp Director at least two weeks in advance.

At each campus, Summer Camp offers various activities that are enjoyable and developmentally appropriate. Scheduled activities can include possible field trips, which requires a signed permission form from the parent or guardian. A bus in the MCS fleet and a certified driver will transport campers on trips.

The MCS Child Nutrition Program will provide breakfast to all interested students at no cost from 7:15 to 8 a.m. Campers can take a MCS lunch or bring a sack lunch. Parents also should send a morning and afternoon snack daily.

All campers and employees must wear masks.
