Summer at Canterbury

You don't have to be a Canterbury School student to enjoy our summer camps and programs!

We aim to provide high-quality educational and recreational programs for all Fort Wayne-area students. To achieve this, we offer extraordinary opportunities for children of all ages, from age 2 through Grade 12. Whether it's review or enrichment in an academic course, or engagement in a variety of camp activities, Canterbury encourages each child to pursue their passions.

Programs are scheduled by students' ages as of June 1, 2019, or grades as of the 2019-20 academic year.

 


 

Summer Camps, Age 2–Grade 12

Canterbury Summer Camp

OVERVIEW

CAMP FACULTY
Canterbury School faculty teach our summer camps. We believe our teaching faculty is the key to our campers' enjoyment. While many hold advanced degrees in their disciplines, all provide a challenging, enriching, and supportive learning environment for students to build a foundation for a life of purpose, passion and meaning. Faculty assigned to camp groups are responsible for ensuring the safety of their groups and for facilitating age-appropriate activities during the day.
 
CAMP SESSIONS
Each camp session requires a minimum of 10 participants. We reserve the right to cancel a session if the minimum number of campers is not met. If we should do so, we'll notify affected families immediately and issue refunds for the cancelled session.
 
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Our school nurse serves all students while programs are in session. Upon registration, you will be asked to complete a medical form for your child. Please be certain it contains all the information needed to properly care for your child. Feel free to contact the Summer Camp Director prior to registration to discuss any health concerns.
 
BEHAVIOR
Canterbury School encourages the highest standards of honorable conduct, civility, and a sense of fair play, as is consistent with the school's student standards of behavior. Children enrolled in Summer Camp are expected to be polite to their fellow campers, counselors, and other camp or school personnel, and to respect the property of others and the school. Campers are not to leave the building on their own, and they are expected to be with their assigned camp groups at all times. Canterbury School reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to deny any camper the opportunity to participate in camp if the child's social conduct or behavior is deemed unsatisfactory by the camp administration.

CREDIT
The credit value for a particular academic course meets all applicable standards for an accredited secondary school. Credit will only be issued if the student completes all necessary coursework as proscribed by the instructor.
 
Canterbury students will receive credit for completed coursework, and all non-Canterbury students will receive a certificate of completion upon finishing their coursework. Courses may or may not be transferable to other schools, so guest students should check with their guidance counselors before enrolling in courses.

Regular attendance is essential for successful completion of Canterbury High School's summer courses. Unexcused absences may result in loss of credit in an academic course or dismissal from the program. There will be no refund of tuition if a student voluntarily withdraws or is dismissed due to non-attendance or misconduct.

Financial aid is available only to Canterbury School students who will be receiving aid for the 2019-20 academic year. Canterbury students should select the "2019-20 Financial Aid" option during registration.
