SUMMER CAMP CHANGES

Posted by on March 21, 2017
As you know, we rent space at MCPS locations for our Kids Camps every summer. Although we submitted requests for all of the locations that held camp at last year, we’ve heard back from the county and have a few significant changes that we want to share with you.
We apologize for the inconvenience and have done our best to provide convenient alternatives, which are listed below. Please let us know if you prefer to make different plans for your camper(s).
LAKEWOOD:
Due to Summer School, we’re not able to be in the Lakewood school building at all this Summer. Therefore,
  • Weeks 1-8: We are moving Lakewood Kids Camp to Ritchie Park!
    Campers enrolled at Lakewood for weeks 1-8 will be automatically moved to Ritchie Park Kids Camp. If you would like to select a different camp, your camper can attend a different Kids Camp at no charge or go to the Ranch or Mountainside for an additional fee.
  • Week 9: Campers can attend Matsunaga Kids Camp, Ranch, or Mountainside!
    We’re unable to be at Ritchie Park for week 9, so families can go to Matsunaga Kids Camp, Ranch, or Mountainside for that week (no additional charge for families who are currently enrolled). Please email us and tell us which option you would like to select.
  • Note: Transportation and Extended Care for Ranch, Mountainside, and Excursion will be based out of the Bar-T portable and will remain as scheduled at Lakewood.
KENSINGTON PARKWOOD:
Due to construction, we’re not able to be in the building at Kensington ​Parkwood this Summer. Transportation and Extended Care for Kensington Parkwood families will be moved to Rockview.
Additionally, we have been informed that we’re unable to be at Rockview during Weeks 9-11, so while we will continue to offer transportation, we are unable to offer Extended Care during these weeks.
THURGOOD MARSHALL:
While we’re excited to have camp at Thurgood Marshall this Summer, we’re unable to be in the building during Week 9. Families that are currently enrolled have the option of going to Ranch, Mountainside, or Matsunaga for that week for no additional charge. To confirm your preference, please email us at help@bar-t.com.
Note: Because we’re unable to be in the building at all during Week 9, we are not able to offer Extended Care at Thurgood Marshall for Ranch and Mountainside campers. We will continue to provide transportation as originally planned.
WOOD ACRES:
Wood Acres Kids Camp is our newest camp this Summer and we’re really looking forward to it. Due to preparations for the upcoming school year, we’re unable to be in the building during Week 9. For campers who are currently enrolled in Week 9 at Wood Acres, we have moved your registration to Bar-T Ranch. If you would like to change this, please email us at help@bar-t.com.
Note: Because we’re unable to be in the building at all during Week 9, we are not able to offer Extended Care at Wood Acres for Ranch campers.
Again, we apologize for the inconvenience that these changes may cause. We understand that these may impact your Summer plans and will do our best to ensure that your campers have an awesome Summer at Bar-T!
