The final session (July 29 - August 2) of WIS Summer Camp 2019 is Transportation Week.
Campers will take daily field trips and travel across the metropolitan Washington, DC area to visit locations related to the theme of geology. They will gather images and video to assemble a collaborative film that will be completed by the end of the week and ultimately shared online. There will also be cool-down time at water parks along the way.
Transportation Week Logistics
Camp Hours: 8:00 AM–6:00 PM
Buses will depart promptly at 9:00 AM and return to the Georgetown campus no later than 4:45 PM (return is contingent on weather and traffic). Prior to departure, children will be checked in and grouped by language track and age. Please be prompt; children who are not present at the Georgetown campus at 9:00 AM will not be permitted to join the group. Additionally, it is not possible for parents or guardians to pick campers up at any given destination point; the same number of campers who board the bus in the morning will return to WIS at the end of the day.
In 2019, Transportation Week will be running concurrently with the early childhood program from the Georgetown campus. For this week only, all campers will arrive and be picked up at the Georgetown campus.
All registrations for Transportation Week must be completed by Thursday, July 25 to ensure we have adequate staff, as well enough lunches, and buses.
Age of Participants
Please note that Transportation Week camp is only open for children who are 5 years old by August 6, 2018; children younger than 5 cannot enroll. Children younger than 5 will remain on campus this week.
The boxed lunch option will be sandwiches Monday through Thursday and pizza on Friday. Lunch registrations for Transportation Week must be submitted by close of business on July 26, 2019.
Extended Day Care
Extended Day Care (EDC) is included in the fee for Transportation Week. Children at the Georgetown campus between 4:30 PM and 6:00 PM will engage in organized games and free play until the program closes for the day at 6:00 PM.
