Janney+ Camp


Summer Camp 2021

We are so happy to announce plans for Janney+ Summer Camp!

We look forward to helping children reconnect with their friends and peers this summer in the safe and fun environment of Janney!

Summer Camp will provide students a much needed opportunity to safely socialize and play while also engaging in exciting and fun vendor led programming. Janney+ Summer Camp will be taught by the Janney+ staff that are typically with your child during the regular school-year. In addition, we will be inviting one of our most popular vendors, Little Scholars LLC, to host daily workshops for the topics our families requested.

We will fill each day with a variety of enrichment activities and quality curated play. In addition to their weekly workshops, children will also be provided with time to participate in traditional play and summer activities. Children that stay for our extended hours will get additional free play, snack time, and activities, all with the familiar Janney+ counselors and in the beautiful, safe, and convenient location of Janney’s campus.

We will transform the Janney outside space into different outdoor classrooms and children will have access to the playground for free play and games. To help families feel more comfortable, we will plan for the majority of activities to occur outdoors. During  inclement weather and extreme temperature days, we will move activities and workshops indoors. We will also plan for periodic indoor breaks for students to cool off in the air conditioned building, get water, and use the bathroom. Though camp may look different than it has in the past, Janney+ continues to stay true to our mission of offering programming that instills a sense of curiosity and inquisitiveness in a playful, social setting that is kind and supportive.

Janney+ Summer camp will run from July 12th to August 6th. Families have the option to enroll in one or multiple weeks of camp. Families must enroll in the entire week of camp Monday-Friday. Families who would like to enroll their children in all four weeks of camp will receive about a  5% discount.

The price of camp (8:30-3:00pm) is  $525 for the week, only $16 per hour! Extended day (3:00-5:30) is $100 per week, once again about 5% off if you enroll for all 4 weeks.

Registration is open NOW! Janney+ programs use the Campsite registration system. You may log in to your family’s Campsite account to register or view your current registrations, pay a balance, complete your children’s enrollment forms and change enrollment details, and update your family information. If needed, please create your Campsite account using the link at the bottom of the login page. This process, inclusive of completing all family and student forms, takes approximately 15 minutes.

In addition to our yearly forms, you will be asked to read and acknowledge receipt of our Covid health and safety procedures prior to enrolling. You can also find them attached here.

In summary, Janney+ is adhering to the following guidelines, protocols, and safety measures to mitigate risk and safely return to play:

  • Classes will adhere to social distancing and recommended guidelines
  • All participants will be required to wear masks
  • Classes will remain with consistent cohorts
  • Students and staff will complete a health screening and temperature check prior to joining their class
  • Children will have their own equipment and it will be cleaned/ sanitized between sessions
  • Protocol for reporting and quarantining will be followed
  • Jannet+ will continue to follow the Mayor’s Order regarding travel to high-risk states and DC Health travel guidance. Please continue to check here for updated information on states that are considered high-risk.  You MUST quarantine following your return or show results of a negative test taken 3-5 days after your return.
  • Janney+ will continue to engage with local and state authorities and adhere to all guidelines recommended, making changes to protocol, as needed
  • There will be a snack and lunch period, but snacks must be brought from home and must adhere to Janney’s nut free policy. We will be providing pizza lunch on Fridays!
