FAQs – Potential Pandemic Impact on MFS Summer Programs
Below are responses to common questions about the status of 2020 MFS Summer Programs:
Will you run a partial summer program if you are unable to begin on June 22?
It is too early to answer this question definitively. If we do begin mid-summer, we will start with programming originally scheduled for that date. We will not begin with Week 1 programming.
Will MFS consider an online summer program?
While we are currently running a successful “Virtual MFS” program for current students, implementing this for camp may be a much bigger challenge. That said, we are currently exploring some very specific technology-based classes along with some fun and creative hands-on activities.
Will we get a full refund if programs are cancelled?
If MFS decides to cancel 2020 Summer Programs due to COVID-19, we will notify all families and refund all payments in full.
Can we cancel our children’s summer camp reservations?
Anyone is welcome to cancel their registrations for their own reasons, but the refund policy remains the same as it is written on the summer website under “Dates and Rates.” Up until May 24 you will receive a full refund minus the $75 per week non-refundable deposit.
Can we be assured that our children will be safe in your school environment?
We will only re-open when we have been assured that the deep cleaning being done will provide a safe and healthy environment for all. We will encourage all families to self- check their health condition and not put others at risk by attending if they are unwell.
Why Choose MFS Summer Camp Programs?
Our teachers…campus…attention to detail…personal touch
MFS Summer Programs offers a variety of weekly classes for children ages 3 – 17. Spend a week immersed in robotics, French, mosaics, bridge building, Model United Nations, cooking, and more! The majority of our Master Teachers are our own MFS teachers who are advanced professionals in their field of study.
Using classrooms, fields, courts, and resources on our 48-acre campus allows us to provide the best experience and most memorable summer for your child. Most every class is specifically designed each year with new curriculum which makes for a fun and engaging classroom session.
As a Quaker Day school, we are proud to extend those values into the fabric of our summer programming. Classroom activities are fun and offer a unique way to support each other with regard to collaboration, teamwork, and self-awareness.
Small class sizes, low student to teacher ratio…each family is cared for as part of the MFS community.
