Before & Aftercare Details and Rates 2024

Science & Arts Academy GIfted Des Plaines Illinois  summer camp care logo

Our Before and Aftercare options are offered daily* during Summer Adventures to provide more flexibility for those families who need extended care.  

The Before and Aftercare programs are offered for an additional fee. Participating families receive session invoices based on usage via their CampBrain account. Since Before and Aftercare programs are staffed every day, it is treated as a drop-in service and there is no registration required. 

Students in Before and Aftercare play games, do crafts, and participate in other self-directed activities. Depending on the weather and space availability after camp, students have the option to play games in the gym or on the playground.

​For questions about Before or Aftercare,  contact summer@scienceandartsacademy.org.

Summer Adventures will continue to offer reasonable, flexible payment and refund policies for Summer 2024.

  • Summer Adventures will not issue refunds for absences due to personal reasons or general illness, vacations, or for dismissal from the program for disciplinary reasons. 

  • Summer Adventures reserves the right to cancel summer programs without refunds in case of a force majeure event of an unforeseen exigent situation that causes the school to close or be unable to provide programs due to government restrictions or government actions, extreme weather, or other causes beyond the control of the Summer Adventures Program.  COVID-19 illness is not considered a force majeure event due to its foreseeable nature at the time of planning for Summer Adventures 2024.

All refunds must be requested by emailing us and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
