A Message from RCDS:

The health and safety of The Rumson Country Day School community, students, their families, faculty, and staff is a top priority. Out of an abundance of caution, RCDS has made the decision to cancel summer events originally slated for the 2020 summer season.

We believe this is the right decision to proactively limit congregate settings in order to be as safe as possible during these rapidly changing circumstances. We will continue to make decisions about upcoming school events on a case-by-case basis, using guidelines and the latest information from local and national health authorities. Thank you for your understanding.

RCDS Summer Camp offers a dynamic theme-based program designed for children entering Nursery-Fifth Grade. The six-week program integrates STEAM activities (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics), Language Arts, and sports —all of which are taught by highly experienced staff including RCDS faculty and guest instructors.* 

Campers are afforded the opportunity to explore, discover, make connections, enhance skills and avoid the summer slide. Academic enrichment, technology, organized sports, hands on activities and projects blend together to provide an exciting, fun-filled summer experience.

*Please note all employees have completed a background check. 

General tuition for our Summer Camp Program is a per-week basis for $375.

Children can enroll for individual weeks or the whole six-week experience. All sessions in this six-week program meet from 9AM-12PM.

Please read the details below, and register for courses with the grade your child will be entering in the fall of 2020.
