Camp Pegasus

JUNE 21 – JULY 30

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

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.  The Camp Pegasus team is in the process of finalizing plans for our three camp sessions and full program details will be coming soon, with registration set to open on Wednesday, March 17. If you are interested in receiving future communications about camp, please complete this short interest form and we’ll add you to our list.

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.

THREE 2-WEEK SESSIONS OFFERED:

SESSION 1: June 21 – July 2 
SESSION 2: July 6 – 16 (No camp on July 5)
SESSION 3: July 19 – 30


CAMP HOURS

Camp will be offered only in full-day sessions for all campers in K– Grade 5 and the majority of campers in Grades 6-8. A half-day session will be available for Pre-K campers, as well as those enrolled only in Debate or Low-Stress Test Prep in the morning. Camp hours are as follows: 

Pre-K and Kindergarten* (Full Day) – 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. 
Pre-K (Half Day), AM Debate, and AM Test-Prep – 9:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. 
Grades 1-8 (Full Day) – 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

*Sibling policy - Pre-K/Kindergarten campers who have older siblings enrolled in camp may arrive at the earlier drop-off time and leave at the later pickup time along with their siblings. There will be no additional charge for this time.

• Class size is limited. 
• Spaces are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and a waitlist is utilized.

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.


LUNCH PROGRAM

An optional lunch program is offered through Sapphire at School, a catering company that has been designed especially for school lunch programs. Summer camp lunch offerings typically range in price between $6.50 and $7.50 and include an entree, fresh fruit, bottled water, and a savory snack.

RETURN TO SUMMER SAFELY

 

List of 1 items.

  • 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.
