Moorestown Friends School Summer Programs are held at the school’s beautiful 48-acre campus in Moorestown, NJ. Our outstanding facilities are available during the summer with access to more than 50 classrooms, all comfortably air-conditioned. The Innovation Lab, supplied with a 3D printer, robotics materials, electronic equipment, and woodworking supplies, provides scholars with the utilities to bring great ideas to life.
Four gymnasiums provide the Summer Scholars program versatility under changing weather conditions, but even more importantly, the ability to run a variety of athletic programs.
The White Building and playground allow Tot and Mini Scholars access to the Early Childhood Program facilities so that exceptional programming can continue during the summer months.
Classroom teachers wait with children at the end of each class to ensure that children are picked up safely. Floating interns are available throughout the day across the campus to assist children moving from class to class, class to lunch, as well as class to the swimming pool. Safety is our number one concern. If you see something of concern that does not exemplify this behavior, please bring it to the Camp Director’s attention.
What to Bring/What NOT to Bring
Full-day campers should bring a lunch (or purchase the prepared lunch) and water bottle to camp each day. Anything and everything should be marked with the child’s name on it. Tots and Minis should bring a change of clothing as well as the above articles. Those campers signed up for swimming will additionally need a bathing suit, towel, and sunscreen. Flip flops and other unsecured shoes are only allowed during transit to and from the pool. Sneakers or closed-heeled trail sandals are preferred for camp programs in the classrooms. Sneakers are required for all athletic programs. Non-marking soles are required for courts, indoors and out.
Campers should not bring any personal items or electronic devices to campus, except for cell phones. All cell phones are to be left in backpacks and turned off during classes. MFS Summer Scholars strongly supports this position and will take temporary possession of any device if it is seen and used during programs. MFS will not be responsible for any personal devices brought to campus that become lost or broken.
We recognize that parents love knowing and seeing the great things happening in the classroom each day. Lead Teachers and interns will upload photos and a class summary so that a running blog of all Summer Scholar activity can been seen in one place at summer.mfriends.org.
Many Lead Teachers will communicate directly with families (by email) if important information needs to be shared. If you are receiving too many emails or do NOT receive enough communication, please be in touch with the Summer Director, Martha Cameron. Our summer staff feels that more information is better than none at all. Please excuse our need to keep you well-informed; it is for the safety of your child and to prevent misinformation and confusion
Throughout the summer, MFS enjoys documenting the fun and activity by taking numerous photos and producing a video from time to time. Your online registration process will give you the opportunity to “opt out” of having your child photographed if this is a sensitive matter. We respect your need for privacy. Rest assured that children’s names are never included with photos posted anywhere on our site or in our publications, unless requested.
