Important Camp Information:

  • A pre-enrollment fee of $60 is required for all children attending SECamp. This fee is non-refundable.
  • All billing will go through the USI Business Office. You will receive an invoice for the entire summer. You may pay for the entire summer upfront or you may choose to pay in installments. If you pay for the entire summer, by the first installment (May 15th) you will be given a $50.00 credit. You will not receive reminder invoices as the installment dates approach. Installment dates are set as: May 15th, May 30th, June 12th, and June 26th.
  • Checks can be mailed to the USI Business Office or paid in person at the USI Business Office. Please maintain your invoice(s) and receipts for tax purposes. Contact the USI Business Office with questions at 812-464-1842 or stop by their office in lower level of the Orr Center. Office hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.
  • The USI rate applies to employees or students at the University of Southern Indiana who are the legal guardian(s) of the camper. The off-campus parent rate applies to those individuals who are not employees or students at USI.

 

Enrollment Options:

 Full time (Five days per week), three days (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) or two days (Tuesday and Thursday).

  • A child is enrolled in camp all summer, unless arrangements are made with the camp supervisor prior to the first day of camp. After May 26th no changes to enrollment are allowed.
  • If you withdraw your child from camp, a written notice must be received two weeks prior to the child’s last day. This notice must be given to Kathy Hayden, Camp Supervisor. Failure to provide two weeks written notice will result in your being billed for those two weeks. Notice to withdraw will not be accepted after July 2nd. Vacation days are not credited for students who withdraw early.
  • Please notify the Camp Supervisor in writing if your child will not be attending the first week of camp otherwise your child will be withdrawn from camp and the pre-enrollment fee will be forfeited.
  • “No-fee” vacation/sick days correlate to the number of days per week that your child is enrolled. For example, a family whose child is enrolled full-time may take five days during camp as “no-fee” days. A child enrolled Tuesdays/Thursdays will receive two “no-fee” days. The “No-Fee” days are reflected in the invoice you receive for the last week of camp. (This applies regardless of when you actually took the days).
  • We are currently unable to accept vouchers at this time.

Camp Logistics

  • Lunches are not provided and refrigeration is not available so pack your child’s lunch accordingly. In the event of food allergies some produces will not be permitted. It is your responsibility to make sure we are informed if your child has a specific food allergy.
  • Part of what makes camp fun are the field trips. The program includes several field trips each week. Children will ride in a school bus for field trips, and all children in attendance that day attend field trips.
  • The field trip schedule is as follows:
  • SECamp K1 (for incoming Kindergarten students) – Monday & Thursday
  • SECamp K2 (for incoming first grade students) – Monday & Thursday
  • SECamp A (for 2nd and 3rd grade student) – Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday
  • SECamp B (4th and 5th grade students) - Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday
  • Calendar of field trips will be distributed at open house 

Please note: Field trip fees are included in the weekly fee, with the exception of an extra fee for the end of camp field trip. This special field trip (SECamp A and B only) is optional and an additional cost is charged. Alternative camp options for that day are not provided. Admittance, lunch, and transportation fees will be billed separately for all children who attend this extended trip.
