Summer Camp Registration

New this year, the summer camps are now divided into entering young preschool, entering pre-k, and entering kindergarten. We hope that your children will join us! Be sure to sign up early, as space is limited to 18-24 per Lakeside Camp in each age group (14 for Soccer Tots Camps). Extended Care is also available for families - regardless of whether you sign up for mini-camps - from 12:30 to 5:30pm. We especially recommend this camp for children starting Lakeside for the first time in the 2014-15 school year.

For more detailed information, please download the brochure, and registration form (entering pre-school | entering kindergarten) or drop by the office to pick up a copy.
