List of 4 frequently asked questions.

  • What is Classic Camp?

    Add Classic Camp to your morning or afternoon Exploration camp to make a full day. Classic Camp is a traditional day camp with a variety of activities and experiences. There will be indoor and outdoor activities including games, physical play and arts and crafts.  Lunch included with full days.  
  • What should my child bring to camp?

    Clothing: Campers should wear comfortable clothes and shoes appropriate for their scheduled activities. Shorts, T-shirts and tennis shoes are suggested for most classes. Students cannot wear inappropriately low tops or pants or clothing that exposes midriff or under garments. Campers will not have lockers so many choose to bring a small backpack. Water bottle: Please pack a refillable water bottle. Take time to mark the water bottle and personal belongings with your child's name.
  • Are cell phones and electronics allowed?

    Brilliant Summer requests that your child not bring valuables or electronics to camp. Cell phones and electronics may not be used during camp hours. Mark all personal belongings with your camper's name. While we make every effort to find campers’ lost or missing possessions, St. Catherine's School is not responsible for them. Our lost-and-found box is in the Brilliant Summer office. All lost-and-found items as well as classroom projects must be claimed by the close of camp on July 28.
