EAGLE Summer Camp 2020 Cancelled

Due to continuing concerns with social distancing, EAGLE School Summer Camps have been cancelled for 2020:

We truly regret having to make this decision but based on input from teachers, school administration, and families, and taking into account CDC guidelines and recommendations from our institutional peers, we determined that a camp this summer was simply not viable.

How will this affect current registrations and potential refunds ?

All registrants will receive a full refund. 

  • Those that registered online should eventually see a refund either in PayPal (if that payment ws made with a PayPal account) or on the credit/debit card used to make the payment through Paypal, that credit/debit.
  • Those that registered with a personal check will receive a refund by check soon.

We do not yet have a precise timeline for the return of funds but if you do not receive a refund by mid-June, please contact Andrew Irving (monsieur@eagleschool.org).

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

For those who are curious about what our camp was going to be like in 202, here is the description of our second attempt to organize the program in early August.

Eagle School Summer Camps 2020

EAGLE School is (still!) excited to announce our 2020 Summer Camps. In designing the program, we gave ourselves a curriculum challenge: offer learning and growth opportunities normally not fully implemented during the academic year. We answered that challenge with an array of programs — from the sciences to physical education — that will appeal to gifted, talented, and advanced students in the greater Madison community.

Session dates:

Week 1: August 3-7, Week 2: August 10-14.  Students can register for one or two weeks

The Origami camp will take place online, June 15-19, 2020.

Daily schedule for in-person camps:  4 1.5-hour sessions — from 8:45am until 4:00pm — that can be combined as needed. Students can sign up for one or all four each week, depending on their preferences and, of course, scheduling concerns for parents. There is a 15-minute break in the morning and another in the afternoon, as well as a prepared lunch option ($5) at noon.

Who is eligible? EAGLE Summer Camp is designed for gifted, talented, and academically-advanced students.

Students not currently attending EAGLE School are more than welcome!  For admission, a recommendation is requested from a current teacher or school official. Please click here for that form. Once accepted, you can register your student through our online registration page.

Physical activity:  Because summer should also include a bit of moving and shaking, the EAGLE August Summer Program will offer students a physical education option. Themes will focus on games and challenges unlike those they would normally find in a typical school gym class.

Before/After School Supervision ? We are offering after school supervision until 5:30 at a rate of $10/hour.

How can I register? Register online or via USPS.

Cost:

$70 per 1.5-hour weekly session
$125 per 3-hour weekly session
$25/week: optional LUNCH (no nuts, gluten-free and vegetarian options available)

If there is a gap in the participant’s schedule (e.g., they register for the first morning period then one after lunch), parents/guardians will have the option of either supervising the participant during that gap, or registering them for another period to fill the gap (such as physical education).
