Country Day Summer


Where the Summer Comes Alive!

For the 2016 summer, our classes and camps for students entering kindergarten through 12th grade, run Monday through Friday, from June 20 through August 5. Camp is closed July 4. Camp Cavalier is offered morning, afternoon or full-day. Our Cavalier Academy, with classes ranging from Arabic and Biology to Zine Scene, has both morning and afternoon sessions.  Click HERE to read class and camp descriptions.

Sign up here for camp and classes  

This year, the Summer Program sign-up is online for registration and for payment. And, sometimes “new” takes some getting used to. As we’ve tested the system, here are some hints. For questions and helpful suggestions, please email

The first registration is for you – the parent – and the following registrations are for your children. 

If you’re signing up for lots of classes and camp weeks, you might want to create your own spreadsheet or list in advance, because you will be adding one class and one camp, week by week. Finally, for each class, you will need to complete the waiver and select your payment option – either full pay or deposit only.

If you don’t receive a confirmation, be sure and check your spam folder.

Thank you for your patience as we introduce the new system.


Rollercoaster Engineering

Students will explore the physics used in designing today’s rollercoasters, such as the law of conservation of energy, forces, and motion. They will be designing, testing, and building model rollercoasters using foam tubing and marbles. Students will learn that most modern coasters are completely driven by the force of gravity and that the conversion between potential and kinetic energy is essential in maintaining momentum.


Cooking Class

Do you like to help in the kitchen? Do you like to watch Guy Fieri or Rachel Ray on TV? Well, come and spend some time learning to cook! Each DELICIOUS day will be filled with stories, art for the kitchen, and recipes galore! Join some friends to create balanced breakfasts, luscious lunches and delectable dinners, scrumptious snacks, and delightful desserts. Finish the week with your own cookbook of recipes and ideas. We hope you’ll join us for a wonderful, mouth-watering week.
