GirlSummer Day Programs FAQs

Check out our answers to the most frequently asked questions about the Girlsummer program.

List of 7 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: What should my daughter bring to the program each day?

    Please be sure that your camper comes with a full water bottle and a backpack. Please be sure your child in the morning with a generous application of sunscreen. Due to possible allergic reactions, it is recommended that your child bring their own sunscreen for re-application during the day; the sunscreen should be kept in your camper’s backpack. Your camper should have breakfast before arrival.
  • Q: What are the lunch options?

    Emma Dining Services provides many healthy and tasty options for campers, all of which is clearly labeled. Lunch options include salads, deli sandwiches, hot options like macaroni and cheese and veggie burgers, pita and hummus, and desserts. Drinks include water and lemonade on Friday’s. No soda is provided.
  • Q: What if I need to pick up my daughter early from the program?

    If you need to pick up your camper before the end of the day, please let us know during drop off or by emailing that morning.  You will then meet your camper in the GirlSummer office in the Mott Gymnasium at the designated time.
  • Q: What if my camper is going to be absent or late?

    If your camper is going to be absent or late, please email
  • Q: Is there an after hours program?

    We will not be offering before-care or after-care, for the 2022 GirlSummer Program. This is so we have ample time to do a thorough campus cleaning each afternoon.
  • Q: What happens in the event of severe weather at pick-up time?

    Please pay close attention to your email as we will email you with further instructions for picking up your camper should there need to be an early dismissal.
  • Q: What is your cancellation policy?

    An enrolled camper/student may only be withdrawn upon written notice received by the school if such notice is received on or before May 1, 2022. If written notice is received on or before May 1, 2022 you will receive a full refund of the program tuition and additional options minus a 10% processing fee. If you decide to cancel your daughter’s enrollment/application in writing after May 1, 2022, you will forfeit 50% of the total program tuition and any optional fees paid.  In the event of a health or safety emergency and/or pandemic, you will be entitled to a refund of any portion of the camper’s/student’s tuition or fees if the summer program is discontinued.
