2021 Summer Camp Details

Get ready for a HEROIC Adventure

This year our summer and weekly themes are based around Heroes of the Bible and how they can help us

see local heroes,

and be heroes ourselves. 

2021 Weekly Themes

Early Beginnings operates its School Age Program, which includes Before/After School Care and Summer Camp on the Mountain Island Day campus. This campus allows for classes, field trips, playgrounds and a central location to many different areas and attractions around Charlotte. 

For 16 years Early Beginnings has celebrated the joy of summer with local families, and has held Summer Camp at MID since Early Beginnings founded MID in 2009.  Summer Camp begins the average first day school is out and continues until the first day of the next school year. Each summer program has a main theme with weekly sub themes and classes are divided into five different age groups.

Every week includes water activities, art projects, games, activities, age appropriate field trips, devotions, free time, academic learning and good-ol' fashion fun.

Catered Breakfast and Lunch are included in tuition and provided by a 3rd party caterer. An Afternoon Snack is also included.

** Special Covid safety measures are in place until further notice**

We no longer have "Traditional" and "Need-based" categories

or an upfront Summer Activity Fee.

  • You choose the weeks you need summer camp in advance and pay only for those weeks. 

  • You pay an Activity Fee only on the weeks you register for. 

  • You choose a program for the summer: Full Time (M-F) or 3 Day Part Time (T/W/TR) 


At the time of registration, you choose your camp format (5-day or 3-day) and the specific weeks you will attend. You pay tuition/Fee for the first week you will attend to confirm your registration. Then, you are invoiced for each registered week one week prior to attendance.

- Payment for the week's tuition and activity fee must be received by 12:00 pm Friday prior to the requested week in order to attend the following week. Tuition and Fee must always be paid together.

- A two-week notice is required to move or cancel a scheduled week.

- Tuition for registered weeks is due regardless of attendance if cancellation policies have not been met.

- Campers may change their program (PT of FT) only once during the summer if there is room and with proper notice. Parents may not fluctuate back and forth between plans due to scheduling, staffing and student safety.
