Registration Information

Summer at Park strives to provide a stress-free process of preparing and registering for summer camp. This page will help you navigate your pre-camp process and prepare you for a wonderful summer.​

Registration
  • Registration can be completed through our registration system by clicking here.

    • Registration opens on Monday, December 14, 2020 at 12:00PM.

  • Registration is ongoing and handled on a first-come, first-serve basis until program reaches capacity.

    • Program registration closes the Monday before the program begins.

  • We always do our best to accommodate friend requests, but do not guarantee all requests will be honored.

Payment
  • Accepted payment methods include MasterCard, Visa, Check, or Cash.

  • $50 per week per child deposit is due at the time of registration.

    • This deposit is non-refundable.​

  • Family balances must be paid in full before a child can begin camp.

    • The balance of program fees is due at registration if completed after April 1, 2021.​

  • As stated on the payment option page of the registration application, once an application is accepted by Summer at Park, no refunds or transfers will be made for withdrawal, dismissal, failure to attend, or incomplete attendance.​

  • Summer Discounts

    • A single camper who spends the full 8 weeks with us will receive a 5% discount.

    • When two or more campers from the same family spend a minimum of twelve weeks with us this summer, the camper with the highest tuition pays full price and each additional sibling receives a 5% discount.

    • All discounts are applied after registration is complete and can not be combined

Medical Information
  • All medical forms must be in English.

  • A physician’s exam report within the last 12 months and current vaccination record is required for your child to attend camp. You can find a sample on our Health and Safety Page. This sample may be used as a template or simply as a reference.

  • If your child will need to take medication at camp, please fill out the relevant forms, which can be found on our Health and Safety Page. These may include:

    • Food allergy and anaphylaxis emergency care plan

    • Asthma action plan

    • Diabetes action plan

    • Seizure action plan.

  • If your child needs medication at camp, our nurse must receive the medication, along with all relevant forms before your child begins camp. Please make every effort to drop off any medication the Monday before your camp begins, i.e. if camp begins June 28, the medication should be dropped off on or before June 21.

    • If your camp begins June 21, you can drop off medication the preceding Saturday, June 19 between 9 AM - 12 PM at the Summer at Park Offices (255 Goddard Ave. Brookline, MA 02445).

  • The camp nurse is only able to administer the following over-the-counter medications:

    • Tylenol

    • Ibuprofen

    • Tums

    • Benadryl

    • Topicals (like Hydrocortisone)

    • Antibacterial ointment (like bacitracin)

  • In order for the nurse to administer any other medication, either over-the-counter or prescribed, a doctor’s order form is required (a sample form can be found on our Health and Safety Page). All medication should come in the original pharmacy container.

Financial Assistance

Summer at Park strives to make programs accessible to as many children as possible. Each year a limited amount of confidential assistance is provided to families in need to cover a portion of registration fees. To apply, please follow these steps:

  • Register online and pay the deposit to reserve your camper's place in their program(s) of choice.

  • Submit the following documents by email or mail to the Summer at Park office.

    • Completed Financial Assistance Application

    • Season Account Statement (available in your Summer at Park Camper Portal)

    • 2 of the following income verifications:

      • Federal Income Tax filing for previous year

      • Two months of paycheck stubs

      • Current statement of award or benefits for TANF, SSI, or other public assistance

      • Two most recent unemployment check stubs

      • Two months of bank statements

      • If you feel that you have extenuating circumstances not evidenced by the above information, you may submit a statement explaining your current situation.

  • Once you have submitted the Financial Assistance Application, a Summer at Park staff member will follow up with you to determine the amount of assistance that is available. If the amount of assistance offered is not adequate to meet your needs, you will have the option to cancel your child's enrollment at that time.

    • Failure to submit the completed Financial Assistance Application, the Season Account Statement, and 2 forms of income verification may result in a delay in your application being reviewed or worse yet, denied​.

  • Application reviews begin in late January and will continue until all Financial Assistance funds have been distributed.

  • Please be aware that we do not keep applications from prior years. As such, you must re-apply for financial assistance each year. While you may have received financial assistance previously, that does not automatically ensure that you will receive an award this year.
