Drop Off & Pick Up:
Summer Jam Camp is a closed campus camp. We require that you sign your child in & out at the check-in table every day with a staff member. Drop off is rolling, anytime between 9am and 10am. So if your camper needs a little extra sleep one day, they won’t miss crucial activities.
Optional Early Pickup + Extended Day:
In order to provide flexibility for parents, students may be picked up from camp starting at 2:30pm and as late as 3:30pm. During this time, students will have the option to participate in outdoor games, practice time, and art activities.
Lunch & Snack:
Please pack two snacks for your student each day. Snack time occurs twice each day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon.
All campers should pack a bag lunch every day of camp. We will eat lunch at 12:00 pm. Keep in mind campers won’t have access to a microwave, so pack ready to eat foods and utensils if needed. There is no refrigeration available.

All instruments and materials are provided for Summer Jam Camp. But, please bring:
- Face-covering (this is mandatory - please make sure to wash cloth coverings periodically)
- Water bottle (this is mandatory – Desert Montessori School does not have water fountains, only water filling stations)
