2021 Summer Camp
Summer Camp will run from July 6th*-August 13th from 9:00-5:00 pm. Due to construction at the school building, we do not expect to be onsite at PS 11 this summer but are working hard to create an enriching, fun-filled, robust camp that will keep your kids active and engaged. We are excited to be partnering with the Giant Room and will have more information available soon about other activities, field trips and partnerships. If you have already registered for camp, please log in to your Eleyo account and complete the registration template (under account management) – we have added additional questions to the registration form. We will be processing $100 deposits on June 1st and issuing invoices for the summer. If you need to change or cancel your registration, please let us know before June 1st. Registration is here.
*We have changed the start date of summer camp to reflect the extended July 4th Holiday Weekend.
