Letter from the Director
Join us for our most exciting summer yet! For the last 19 years, Summer Programs at Cary Academy has provided a transformative and enriching summer camp experience for thousands of school-aged participants from the across the Triangle, state, country and world. For this season, I am eager to share that we are offering many new camps and programs across six areas of interest: Adventure, Creative and Performing Arts, Culinary and Cultural Arts, Science and Technology, Scholar Studies, and Sports and Wellness. With over 250 specialized options, we would be thrilled to have you join us for the “Best Summer Ever!”
Just as the content of our programs is always evolving, we are also always listening to the needs of today’s busy family and today’s savvy camper. We know that you want to confirm summer plans earlier and we are happy to announce online registration will start much earlier this year, on February 1. We want you to select Summer Programs at Cary Academy as the primary destination for your child’s summer camp experience. With so many wonderful camp offerings in the Triangle area, we know that it is a challenge to carpool children to various locations during various times of the day. To make summer scheduling a little easier, we are now offering Summer Quest camps for rising grades K – 9 so everyone in the family can be part of our summer family. With all the new changes, we will continue to offer curbside drop-off and pick-up and extended care for those families who need a little more travel time to get to and from campus each day. Our partnership with local restaurants will continue as we offer a meal plan for those who prefer that lunch be provided by us instead of packed, additional fees will still apply.
For Summer Adventures, our high school program for rising grades 10 – 12, we will continue to offer classes that meet the needs of their busy schedules. We will continue to offer half and full day opportunities each week along with evening programs that meet over a two week period. With these additional programs, we hope the classes will meet the needs of more youth around the Triangle area. Our Summer Adventures participants will continue to enjoy more freedom around campus and be given learning opportunities to explore new careers and prepare for the next chapter in their lives that might include writing college essays and completing college applications. Our new schedule should provide the flexibility for our high school participants to work, enjoy their summer and participate in one of our enriching programs.
I hope you enjoy reviewing the program catalog with your family for this year. We have searched for the hottest trends and most interesting concepts of today’s youth and worked to make it into coolest camp model offered in the Triangle. I am already looking forward to seeing our state-of-the-art campus filled with eager and excited campers this summer. Please join us to make this the “Best Summer Ever!”
