Kickstart Camp

Registration for 2024 is only available for current and incoming CDS students!

Our ECP Summer Camps are full of fun, creativity and discovery. We aim to keep a similar routine to our regular school year with built in times for special camp events. Each week we host guest enrichment programs that provide entertainment as well as interactive activities. Last year’s enrichment included some of our beloved vendors like Culinary Artistas and Fitness in Transit as well as visits from the Insect Discovery Lab and BubbleMania.


Kickstart is a summer camp that is designed to help incoming Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten students get used to the schedule and routine of a TK and K day. Kickstart curriculum is created and led by teachers who work with Kindergarten students during the school year.
