Norfolk Agricultural Summer Enrichment Program 2020
Our beautiful 365-acre campus at the Norfolk County Agricultural High School is the fantastic setting for this unique summer camp program for children ages 7 – 13 years.
New for 2020! If there is enough interest, an improved Counselor in Training program will run for 14 and 15-year-old campers. These teens will work with Aggie Staff to gain skills necessary for assisting with specialized Aggie Camp activities.
This is a rare opportunity for your child to benefit from working with a dedicated, knowledgeable staff in a picturesque, rolling farm setting, including the school’s classrooms, fields, forests, three ponds, streams, and barns.
2020 Registration and Rate Information
The tuition rate is $300 for Horse Lover or Canine program camps or $275 for any other camp per ½ day session. Please make checks payable to NCAHS Enrichment Program. No incentives, scholarships, or discounts are available. If CIT (counselor in training) has enrollment, the fee will be $300 per day session for 1 week.
The full amount of the tuition is due at the time of application and is not refundable.
Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are processed through FamilyID online. Applications will be dated, time-stamped, and processed in the order in which they are received. All applications should be submitted by June 15, 2020.
Sessions with less than 10 students registered may be canceled. If this occurs, students may choose another session or receive a refund.
Your registration receipt is confirmation. Again, you will be notified if a class is canceled. Additional information, such as health and emergency forms, is included on FamilyID.
Campers that are registered for the morning and afternoon sessions are automatically signed up for the supervised lunch which will enable the camper to stay the whole day. The rate for a full day for a week for all non-CIT camps is between $550-$600 per week based on programming choices. Lunch/snack is not routinely provided by the camp per Board of Health regulations. Send campers with refillable water bottles and snacks, even if they are not staying the whole day. Please provide lunch if you plan on having them attend both sessions (full day).
If you are bringing a dog for either of our canine camps, a copy of up-to-date vaccinations (distemper, kennel cough, rabies) must also be sent in. Mail the form in, attach it to your application in the appropriate area, or email the forms to the camp director. *Staff dogs may be available for use (see "Need a Dog" section availability).
Print out your statement for tax purposes. You can do this from your FamilyID account.
