Janney+ Camp


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.

On the days that Janney holds parent-teacher conferences, we must host our camp remotely. On these days we offer field trips, which typically go from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Lunch is not provided on field trip days. Once we return from field trips, students have free play and we end our day with a movie in the cafeteria. We offer Extended Day registration until 6:00 p.m.

Below are the dates that Janney+ will be offering Camp Days. Be on the lookout for an update on specifics regarding all 2022-23 SY camp days in the upcoming weeks!

This program is designed to increase a CITs comfort with working with children and spending time in a collegial work environment. This program is a great way for CIT to receive volunteer credits for school! CITs will participate in our staff meeting each day at 8:15 am and will have special CIT training every Monday during Workshop 1 time and are invited to join Staff Lunches every Friday. CITs will also be expected to follow our staff code of conduct and expectations. This information will be shared with them during a scheduled training before their first day.
