ELEMENTARY BALTIC SUMMER REC PROGRAM

We are thrilled to offer summertime weekday care for elementary-aged students.

Dates for this program will run from 5/30/23-7/28/23 Monday-Friday. The week of July 3rd we will be closed.

Hours for this program are 7:15am-6pm. You are welcome to drop off between the hours of 7:15 and 11am and pick up between 3:45 and 6pm. There is a gap in the time due to our field trips we will take daily.

Location for this program is the Baltic school and run out of the middle school wing. Parents will have full access, while students are attending, to the south side middle school doors. The front doors of the school will NOT be unlocked only the middle school doors will be for parents.

Meals will not be provided for your child so we do ask that each family packs a lunch each day. There will be access to fridges and microwaves should they need them for their meals. We will provide an afternoon snack.

Field trips will be Monday-Thursday with Fridays being a special day spent at the school. (We like to keep Friday’s free of field trips in case families decide to go out of town.

Weekly schedules emailed to you on Sundays to help prepare your family for the field trips and what not. These will have details as far as times, extra clothes to have, and locations for the trips. Please keep an eye out for these.

Summer Dogs Baltic 11-13 year old part-time summer rec program

Your child is only eligible for this camp if they are between the ages of 11-13.

Dates for this program will run from 5/30/23-7/28/23 Monday-Friday. The week of July 3rd we will be closed. 

Hours for this program are 11-4. Kiddos can be dropped off from 11-11:30 and then picked up during the time frame of 3:30-4. Field trips will be Monday-Thursday. However, your child is still able to attend on Fridays for a special day at the school.

Location of this program is in the Baltic school and run out of the middle school wing. Parents will have full access, while students are attending, to the south side middle school doors.

Because of the age of these kiddos they will have a bit more freedom than the younger children do in the Summer Dogs program. However, these two groups will coexist with each other in the same space, utilize the same staff, attend field trips together, and eat snack together upon arrival back to the school.

We do understand that these hours are not conducive for parents to be able to drop off and pick up so we have created 2 options, If your child is under the age of 12 they are eligible to be enrolled into the full time Summer Dogs program. If you would still like to have that part time option we will also give families the option to sign a permission form stating that it is okay for your child to be dropped off by another family or walk/ bike to the school on their own.
