Summer

General Information & Policies

Refunds: We realize that summer plans can change. However, the school has certain fixed costs that do not change if a student withdraws from a class or program. To that end, the school has adopted the following refund policy. If a child withdraws from a class or program at least 2 business days prior to the start of that class or program, he or she will be eligible for a full refund minus the 10% deposit and $50 Registration Fee, which will be withheld to offset any processing costs. Families must notify the Summer Programs Office of the withdrawal in writing by e-mailing summerprograms@viewpoint.org. No refunds will be given for withdrawals once a class or program has started. If a class or program is canceled, a full refund will be issued, including the deposit.
 
Registration: All registration for Viewpoint’s Summer Programs is to be completed online. Each student/camper is required to pay an annual $50 non-refundable Registration Fee. If registration is not completed online and is facilitated by a Summer Program staff member – or is done on the first day of the summer session – there will be an additional $50 processing charge.
 
Payments: All balances must be paid in full before the first day of the class or program for which a student is registered.
 
Fees: There is a $30 fee on all returned checks or returned charge card payment requests. If your debit or credit card expires prior to June 1, 2017, or you wish your post-dated payments to be debited from an alternative or bank account, it is your responsibility to update your card or bank account details with the Summer Programs Office.
 
Early Bird Discount: The 10% Early Bird Discount is automatically applied to any registration completed between February 20 - March 31. Families registered for Camp Roadrunner may switch days and transfer the Early Bird Discount. Any change/switch requests for Camp Roadrunner must be submitted in writing to summerprograms@viewpoint.org at least 2 business days in advance. Any days added after March 31 will be full price.

Enrollment: All courses are open to the public unless stated otherwise. Enrollment is done on a first-come, first-served basis. All courses have a minimum and maximum enrollment. If a program reaches maximum enrollment, subsequent registrants will be placed on a wait list.
 
Enrollment Packets: Registered families will be e-mailed aa detailed enrollment packed at least one week prior to the start of a summer program with details about pick up, drop off, what to bring/wear, and more.
 
Cancelled Classes: Viewpoint reserves the right to cancel any program or class as necessary. If a program or class is canceled, we will try to recommend a comparable course or program as a replacement. A full refund will be issued in the event of a cancelled class. 
 
Camp Roadrunner: There are no refunds for missed days once camp is in session. Families may switch Camp Roadrunner days throughout the summer but must provide 2 business days advance notice in writing. Families who wish to change or add days should email summerprograms@viewpoint.org to request any changes in writing. 
 
Camp Coyote: There are no refunds for missed days once camp is in session. Families may switch Camp Coyote weeks throughout the summer but must provide 2 business days advance notice in writing. Families who wish to change or add weeks should email summerprograms@viewpoint.org to request any changes in writing. 
 
CIT & Jr. CIT Program: The deadline to submit CIT & Jr. CIT paper applications is April 29. After that date, any new CIT & Jr. CIT applicants will be placed on a Wait List. If a CIT and/or Jr. CIT position becomes available at any time up to or during Camp Roadrunner, the selection committee will choose additional CIT and/or Jr. CIT's from the Wait List. Selections from the Wait List will not be based upon a first-come, first-served approach but, rather, on a “best-candidate-for-the-job basis.”
 
Extended Daycare for K-Fifth Grade Programs: Extended daycare is available for children who participate in Camp Roadrunner and Science Camp. The morning session runs from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m., and the afternoon session runs from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. The cost for this service is $10 for the morning session, $25 for the afternoon session. Families will be billed on a drop-in basis during the week of July 3 and July 24. 
 
Field Trip Release Forms: A signed field trip release form must be on file for all students who participate in any kind of off-campus activity. A link to a downloadable trip release form is included in the enrollment packets that are e-mailed to registered students. A student will not be allowed to participate in any off-campus activities without this form on file.
 
Food Service: The School’s food service vendor, Sage Dining Services, will provide lunch at a reasonable cost to all Summer Program participants. Camp Roadrunner participants will receive Patriot Cards (the school’s cash-free option for paying for lunch). Parents will need to fund their child’s Patriot Card before camp begins. All other students may use either a Patriot Card or cash for their purchases. To fund your Patriot Card, please contact Marianne Zimmer at Mzimmer@viewpoint.org or call 818-591-6159. Students may also bring their lunch.
 
Report Cards: All non-Viewpoint students must submit a copy of a recent report card to the Summer Programs Office in order to complete their registration for Camp Roadrunner and Patriot Academic Club.
 
Medical Information: It is required that your child(ren)’s medical information is completed online upon submitting your registration. If your child will need to have any prescription medications administered at camp, please complete the Prescription Medication Authorization Form and submit it to the Viewpoint School Summer Office. *Please note: Any child who is not a currently enrolled Viewpoint student must have a copy of their Immunization Records on file with the Summer Programs Office prior to the child's first day of camp.*
 
Attendance: For Upper School Academic Credit, a student may not miss more than two meetings of a class (in a full-year, two semester class). A student may not miss more than one class meeting for a half-year, one semester class. Students are responsible for completing all work that was assigned during their absence. Academic credit will not be awarded if a student misses more than two classes. Two tardies in the same class count as an absence.

Behavior: The School assumes that students are enrolled in the Summer Programs for a purpose, and that they will conduct themselves accordingly. Students should behave honorably and take responsibility for their actions. While there is no specific dress code during the summer, students should expect to wear clothing that is in good taste. The School will take exception to very unusually colored or styled hair, as well as inappropriate clothing. The School takes very seriously the concepts of respect for others and personal integrity. Rude, insulting, or demeaning behavior will in no way be tolerated. Students who fail to adhere to these rules or to conduct themselves within the spirit of the Summer Program will be subject to expulsion from the Program without refund of tuition.

Books: Given the accelerated nature of summer school, all books and other necessary class materials will be purchased on behalf of students prior to the start of classes and distributed on the first day of classes. If a course requires a textbook, families will be invoiced for the cost of the book and payment will be required prior to the start of the class.

Holidays: The School and all of its programs will be closed on Tuesday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
