How to Register
While it is unclear as to how the coronavirs (COVID-19) will affect Summer Camp for 2021, we will proceed with registration as usual and make any necessary adjustments closer to summer as the need arises.

Details for Summer Camp 2021 will be posted in early February. Spaces fill up quickly, so be sure to check back for more details.

If you receive child care fee subsidy, contact your case worker in February to discuss summer camp coverage. See additional details below.

What does a typical day look like?
We have a balance of indoor and outdoor play, special guests, field trips and cooking experiences. Some program elements may change or be eliminated based on COVID-19 requirements.

Spending as much time as possible outdoors, your child has the opportunity for rich learning experiences and plenty of fresh air and sunshine. Group games, water activities, walks are just a few adventures your children will experience.

Inside, kids do creative activities focused on their interests; this includes project work. There is lots of opportunity for socializing.

Our hours are 6:30 am - 6:00 pm and you choose the time of drop off and pick up.
(Note: Franklin and St. Nicholas camps open at 7:00 am)

Our in-house cook provides nutritious snacks and home cooked lunches where applicaple.

*Our camp program at RisingOaks | Franklin does not have an onsite kitchen or cook. As a result, participants registered here are required to bring a bagged lunch three days a week. RisingOaks will provide snacks daily plus lunch (e.g., pizza or subs) two days per week.

Do you quality for and receive Fee Subsidy Assistance through the Region?

Families who have confirmation of Subsidy Fee Assistance from the Region that covers camp qualify for a subsidy discount code that allows you to check out from the camp registration site without paying. RisingOaks will follow up with you if you have been assigned a partial payment by the Region.

  • If you are a current RisingOaks family, you will  receive a letter notifying you if you quality for a subsidy discount code and what your code is, if applicable, prior to February 15.
  • If you are not a current RisingOaks family, please contact  your subsidy caseworker prior to registering. If they can provide confirmation of subsidy, you may qualify for a subsidy discount code. Alternatively, you can register and pay the $50 deposit per week, per child with a credit card. If subsidy is later approved, your deposits will be refunded.
