About SCDC

  • Philosophy

    Schaumburg Christian Day Camp exists to provide a physically and spiritually safe environment where campers can learn, play, and grow.

    History

    SCDC has been providing excellent care to the residents of Schaumburg and its surrounding areas for over 30 years. We have a large staff of qualified, Christian individuals; many of which hold degrees in education. Our campus is situated comfortably in the middle of Schaumburg, which gives us access to wonderful field trip venues and beautiful parks.

    What makes us different?

    In addition to a Christ-honoring atmosphere, competitive programs, and below-average pricing, SCDC has the most flexible schedule on the market. Bring your children three days this week and five the next. No problem! We also don’t have those unnecessary activity fees and deposits.

FAQ

  • My child didn’t come to Day Camp; can my tuition/fees be reimbursed?‎

    Sorry. Day Camp fees are non-refundable.
  • Can I pre-pay the summer? Can I pre-pay activities and camps?‎

    Yes, you may pre-pay anything you wish. If you do so before May 4th you will receive a 10% Early Bird Discount on everything you pre-pay. But please be aware that Day Camp fees are non-refundable and be sure to plan accordingly.

  • How do I pay for camps and activities?

    We ask that all camps and activities be pre-paid. You can pay online when you register your camper. You can either pay in full or take advantage of one of our payment plan options. We also accept cash and check in the Day Camp office from 8:00-3:30, Mondays-Friday. If you have further questions, please e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

  • How do I clock my child in/out?‎

  • Can I change the number of days my child attends during the week?‎

    You can add days during a week, but you cannot reduce or cancel days once a week has started. All reductions and cancellations must be done before the week you are trying to change starts by calling in to Day Camp or emailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) .

  • What do the campers do if it’s too hot to go outside or is raining‎?

    If it’s raining outside or the heat index is 100º or higher, our campers follow a schedule that keeps them having fun indoors. As soon as the heat or rain is gone, they get to go back outside.

  • What happens if my child becomes ill?‎

    At Home - If your child becomes ill before coming to Day Camp, we require they wait 24 hours from A. the time their fever broke, or B. the last time they vomited before returning to Camp. Ill campers who are taking fever reducing medication cannot come to camp because they are still contagious.

    At Day Camp - If your child becomes ill or is injured at Day Camp, they will visit our health office and we will contact you. In the event the illness or injury is severe enough, we reserve the right to call emergency services

  • To whom do I give my child's medication?

    ​Please turn in all inhalers, EpiPens, and other medications (with instructions for dispensing them) to the Day Camp office.

  • How early can I drop off my child? How late can I pick them up?‎

    Early Arrival is free and begins at 6:30 AM. Late Stay goes until 6:00 PM. Check out the Summer Starter Camp fees for more details concerning Late Stay.

  • How often do Day Campers go on field trips?‎

    Day Campers have weekly field trips on Tuesdays (3's-5's), Wednesdays (1st-3rd grade), and Thursdays (4th-8th grade). Click on the Summer Starter tab to see a full list of our Field Trips!

  • What happens if we arrive after the bus has left for the Field Trip?‎

    In certain events we can provide you directions to the venue. If that doesn’t work, we will keep your child on campus and provide an alternate schedule for them to follow until their fellow campers return.

  • My child is not a Summer Starter Camper; can they go on the field trips?‎

    Nope. Only Summer Starter Campers (SSC) may participate in the field trips.

  • Can my personal information be carried over from SCS’s files?‎

    Unfortunately not. Please create a Day Camp account. After that, your information for Day Camp will only need to be updated from year to year.

  • Do SCS students have to pay the Day Camp registration fee?‎

    Yes. SCS and SCDC run completely independent programs.
  • Can Day Camp tuition/fees be billed to my SCS account?‎

    No. Day Camp fees cannot be billed to SCS accounts. But delinquent payments to SCDC may affect enrollment in SCS.
  • The summer is almost over, can my registration fee be waived?‎

    Nope. Registration fees cannot be prorated.
  • What is the dress code for Day Camp?‎

    All dress is expected to align with the scriptural principles of modesty and association. Therefore pants & Capri’s must be loose fitting. All shorts and skirts must be loose fitting and extend to the mid-thigh. Shirts must also be loose fitting. Tank tops, halters, clothing with inappropriate advertising, and excessively worn/torn clothes are not allowed. Boys' hair should not extend over the ears, into the eyes, or over the collar.

  • What kind of food is available for lunch/snacks?‎

    Our summer menu can be found on the parent dashboard!

  • Is lunch included in the cost of Day Camp?‎

    No. We provide two complimentary snacks a day, but our hot lunch program is available for only $4.00. You can download our Hot Lunch menu from the parent dashboard.

  • Does my child have to be potty-trained?‎

    Yes. All campers must be fully independent in the bathroom.
  • My child is a Half Day camper and the field trip is running late. Will I be charged late ‎fees?‎

    No way. If your child is late because our program ran long, you will not incur any late fees
  • Does my 3-5 year old have to take a nap?‎

    Not necessarily. We have non-nap rooms for the 4’s and 5’s which you'll be able to sign up for on the first week of camp. Of course, we have found that most 3-5 year olds enjoy camp so much more when they get an afternoon nap.

  • My child lost something at camp; how do we find it?‎

    ​The Day Camp office will be more than happy to show you our lost and found.
