2023 Summer @ EDS

Summer @ EDS 2023 registration is now open!  We are very excited about the fantastic opportunities we have available to campers in the CSRA this summer.  Day Camp at EDS is a 7-week summer camp for children 3-12 years of age. Every day, students will participate in games, arts and crafts, outdoor play, special activities based on the week’s theme, and additional rotations of activities.

Summer @ EDS Day Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with half-day until 1:00 p.m., extended day until 5:00 p.m., and early care opening at 8:00 a.m. To qualify for our 3-year-old camp program, campers must be toilet trained and have been in a preschool setting for at least one year.
