Janney+ Camp

Janney+ Summer Camp 2024

Summer Camp at Janney provides students a much needed opportunity to safely socialize and play while also engaging in exciting and fun vendor led programming.  It’s a great way for incoming PK/K friends, and students of all ages, to get re/acquainted with the building, be part of the community, and experience the school in a different, but complementary light to the regular school year.

Each day will be filled with a mix of activity workshops, led by some of our most popular Enrichment vendors, and quality curated play guided by returning Janney+ staff members that are with your child during the regular school-year.

In addition to their weekly workshops, children will also be provided with time to participate in traditional play and summer activities–Think outdoor water play, popsicles, talent shows, etc… Children that stay for our extended afternoon hours will get additional free play, snack time, arts & crafts, games, and group activities, all with the familiar Janney+ counselors.

Camp Information. Janney+ Summer Camp will run from July 8 to August 2. Families have the option to enroll in one or multiple weeks of camp. Families must enroll in the entire week of camp Monday-Friday.

Janney+ Summer Camp CIT Program

Thank you for your interest in Janney+ Summer Camp’s Counselor-in-Training Program! Our CIT program will run alongside our summer programming the weeks of July 8th – August 2nd. CITs are welcome to enroll in one or multiple weeks of programming. Our CIT program promises to be a fun introduction to the employment world, specifically as it relates to the work we do with children. CITs interested in participating in the program must be rising 7th-12th grade.

CITs will be considered a part of our camp staff and will receive a staff t-shirt and CIT ID badge, however, they will never be left alone with children in their care. This program is designed to increase a CITs comfort with working with children and spending time in a collegial work environment and is a great way for CIT to receive volunteer credits for school!

CIT Expectations

Prior to starting camp CITs will complete some mandatory professional development and receive on the job mentorship from senior Janney+ staff. CITs will also be expected to follow our staff code of conduct and expectations, all of which will be shared with them prior to the first day of summer programming. We hope they will feel like an important part of our Summer Program team.

A successful CIT will:

Ask Questions

Make Connections

Know their Boundaries

Understand their Influence

Have FUN!

DAILY SCHEDULE

Ideally, CITs can start the day by 8:15 am to attend the daily staff meeting. End time can be communicated with Sara, the Summer Programs Director, based on their availability, but in general, we assume a CITs day will be 8:15 am to 3:30 pm.

The regular camp day will be from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.

LUNCH AND SNACKS

CITs will be provided time for morning and a late afternoon snack as part of the general snack time. They will need to pack their lunch and snacks each day, unless they plan and have permission to take an off campus lunch.

SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT

Please have your CIT bring: sunscreen, hat (if needed), lunch, water bottle and any necessary things to ensure a successful day.  During inclement weather and extreme temperature days, we will move activities and workshops indoors.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in the CIT program, please create a profile for them and register via Campsite. The fee for the weekly program is $175. If you have any questions, please reach out to Sara Cohen at plussummer@janneyschool.org or call (202) 442-8673.

Janney+ Camp Days

Janney+  offers day camps on professional development and parent-teacher conference days when Janney is closed to students. Programs are taught by the Janney+ and Janney staff that are with your child during the school year. These days are offered only to Janney students and space for these days of care is limited.

In an effort to keep all students safe, Janney+ follows the regular school-day nut-free policy for all programming. This nut-free policy includes those products that have peanuts and tree nuts in the ingredients list. Check for nut products and by-products in foods sent to school. Products that list nuts in the ingredients are not permitted. Note this nut-free policy extends to all Janney+ camp days, including offsite field trips.

Our in-house camp days offer a workshop model where children rotate between enrichment activities and quality curated play in vendor-led activities. Some of our most popular workshops are Gardening and Environment, Sports, Programming, Art, Theater and Music, Cooking, Piano and Knitting, Writing/Storytelling Workshops, and Building and Legos. Our workshop model allows flexibility for your child to choose the enrichment activities they want to participate in each day during camp. In addition to their chosen workshops, they are also given time to participate in traditional play and seasonal activities.

Workshop activities end at 3:00 p.m. We offer Extended Day registration until 6:00 p.m. Children registered for Extended Day have additional free play, snacks, and activities with camp staff on Janney’s campus.
