Get ready to SPARK your creativity!!

Our summer and weekly themes are based around the fact that God is the Master Artist, and we are God's masterful design. We will use our talents, energy, and creativity to explore the amazing creation in the world around us and in each other.

2022 Weekly Themes

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

For 17 years Early Beginnings has celebrated the joy of summer with local families and has held Summer Camp at MID/JDS since Early Beginnings founded the school in 2009.  Summer Camp begins the first day school is out and continues until the last day before the next school year.

Each summer program has a main theme for the whole summer with weekly sub-themes. Classes are divided into five different age groups.

Every week includes water activities, art projects, science, 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.

** Covid safety measures are in place and updated continualuy**

  • 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 on the Friday prior to the requested week in order to attend the following week. Tuition and Activity 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.

 

Acticity Fee for K-4 and 5th-8th differences and requirements

The weekly Activity Fee covers costs for off site field trips including admissions, gas, etc. as well as some activities done on campus.

Campers who've completed 5th grade have a lower Actvity Fee because they are required to purchase a Carowinds Season Pass. This pass covers their water activity at Carolina Harbor twice a week and going into the park twice a month. The pass for 2022 cost $125. For the 11 weeks of summer camp that's $11 per week. BUT, you get to use it all year long and your activity fee is $10 per week less.

There is a link at the bottom of this page to purchase the pass from Carowinds.
