MUST READ POLICIES IF USING:CHARTER FUNDS

If using Charter Funds please note:

  2. We have a 3% non refundable administrative fee per enrollment when using charter funds. This small fee enrolls your child in the program. Should your funds not be insufficient or go through, we will charge the card on file.

     

  3. The parent or guardian is ultimately responsible for payment should funds not go through. Please be aware of your account balance prior to signing up. Should you not have the full amount, we can bill you the difference. You will also be financially responsible for camp days that land on school holidays, which aren’t covered by charter funds.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SCHEDULING:

PLEASE NOTE PRIOR TO ENROLLING, Some of our classes may be held on school holidays for your charter (each charter has their own holidays and therefore hard to accommodate everyone). If this is the case, you are personally responsible for covering tuition for that day that the charter will not fund.

HOMESCHOOLFrequently Asked Questions

Can I stay with my child at camp?
We know it can be tough to leave your child especially if it’s the first time, but we do not allow parents to stay at camp. We are a drop off only program.
Can I check out camp prior to enrolling my child?

This is a great question, we offer open houses throughout the year and do our best to host one prior to an enrollment period that allows for you to check out Camp SHINE. Please be on the lookout for our next one. (Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list for notifications on upcoming events like this).

Do you offer individual tours of Camp SHINE?
We do not. Since we are a smaller organization, we don’t have the time to individually meet with families. As parents ourselves, we know how much we LOVE our kids, we are always happy to chat with you over the phone and answer any questions you might have. Reach out to us at hello@campshine.com with your phone number to request a call from us.
I really want my child to make friends and have community. Does this happen at Camp SHINE?

YES! We have had so many families create lasting friendships here at Camp SHINE. We have a very warm and welcoming program and as a byproduct, it is very easy for the kids to create friendships. Many kids even get together outside of Camp SHINE.

What can I expect my child to learn at Camp SHINE?
Great question! Your child will learn to use their heart, hands and mind here at Camp SHINE.

We teach animal husbandry/gardening and what it is like to run and tend the farm.

We also teach elements that are a bit of a lost art, handwork, weaving, felting, herbs and plants as ways to care for our bodies, building and cooking, (all of which is great for eye hand coordination, fine motor skills/large motor skills and is relaxing and meditative.)

We also seek to see what yourI child SHINES at and we welcome them to teach us their skills and knowledge practicing leadership skills and confidence building!

We also enjoy hiking and the seasons, instilling a love of nature.

We also love to teach about the nervous system and ways to care for yourself, your neighbor and also the planet. We love weaving in tool such as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), mindfulness and gratitude. Our intent is to help build resilient and confident children who SHINE.

How do the mixed ages work since it is K-6th?

It works amazingly well!! Instead of being a classroom with comparisons, we are more like a family. The older children assume leadership roles and the little ones raise to the occasion. All the activities we do, are enjoyed by all ages, even adults. We really enjoy our mixed ages program. 🙂
