Please click here to read an important message from our Camp Director. This letter was sent to all registered families on May 11, and it includes health and safety reminders and updates about camp this summer.

JUNE 21 – JULY 30

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN

We are excited to announce Camp Pegasus will be offering on-campus, in-person programs for students in pre-K through Grade 8 this summer! We will be implementing COVID-19 health and safety protocols to ensure all campers and staff have a safe and fun summer. 

Since 1979, Camp Pegasus has been offering students in pre-K through eighth grade the unique opportunity to explore their interests in a joyous learning environment filled with play, exploration, and hands-on activities. Curious learners are nurtured and challenged by experienced, passionate teachers who design creative and dynamic learning opportunities.

Throughout each two-week session, pre-K through fifth-grade teachers reinforce foundational skills in subjects such as reading, math, and writing — all while engaging and involving each student. At the middle school level, students continue developing these skills by focusing on individual subjects that interest them.

EXTENDED DAY

At this time, we do not anticipate being able to offer Extended Care in the mornings or afternoons due to the need to keep campers in stable groups throughout the day. Should local and state heath guidance change prior to camp beginning, we will update camp families.

Summer camp lunch offerings typically range in price between $7.50 and $9.50 and include a choice of entrée, fresh fruit, and a snack. Click here to view the menu this summer.

RETURN TO SUMMER SAFELY

  • COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan

    Prior to beginning the 2020-2021 school year in August, The Pegasus School developed comprehensive Return-to-Campus Guidelines to ensure the health and safety of students and employees. These practices have served to keep our community safe and our school open for in-person instruction.

    Camp Pegasus campers will follow the school’s plan with a few minor modifications for the summer, and more details will be shared prior to registration. Some highlights include: 

    Camper and Staff Screening
    • Daily Wellness Screenings will be completed for all students and employees prior to arrival on campus
    Arrival/Departure
    • Student temperatures will be taken upon arrival each day
    • Arrival and departure will be staggered to allow for greater physical distancing and multiple campus entrances will be utilized
    Face Masks 
    • Face masks will be worn at all times (except when eating and drinking) by all students and employees throughout the day
    Stable Groups
    • Students will remain in stable groups throughout the day and will not mix with other groups. This measure supports contract tracing in the event of a possible exposure to COVID-19. 
    School Nurse
    • School Nurse Karen Hurst will remain the point of contact for COVID-19 response. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding COVID-19, please contact Karen Hurst.
    Healthy Hand Hygiene and Increased Cleaning Measures
    • Campers will practice frequent hand washing throughout the day and it is built into the camp schedule, including before and after snack and lunch, after using the restroom, and after any outdoor activities.
    • Whenever possible, students will not share materials. If an item must be shared, it will be sanitized between uses. Classroom spaces, including high-touch surfaces, will be sanitized frequently. 
    Ventilation
    • Doors will be open at the beginning and end of every class period to limit the number of hands touching the doorknobs.
    • A significant investment has been made in our ventilation system. Air scrubbers were installed in the HVAC units. This elevates the air purification level of the filter to a MERV 13, which is recommended by the CDC.
