Day Off Camp

St. Thomas strives to accommodate the busy schedules of our parents by providing Day Off Camp on our Teacher Work Days. These days are often not a holiday and, therefore, many parents are working and/or have other obligations.
 
Parents can register their St. Thomas student(s) for a half-day or full-day. The half-day hours are noon to 3 p.m. and the full-day hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For your convenience, we offer FREE extended morning care and aftercare! Campers may arrive as early as 8 a.m. and may be picked up as late as 4 p.m.

If a child is registered for 3 or more sessions during your initial registration, you will receive a discounted rate of $5off per camp! 
 
The fees for Day Off Camp are $40 for a half day and $65 for a full day.

Camp includes lunch! Two slices of Power Pizza, fruit, and a cold drink will be served to all campers.
