Program Information and Registration
Summer Enrichment Camps are self-supporting and are designed and facilitated by staff. There is no cost to the Board of Education as camp tuition covers the costs of teacher salaries and supplies. Chinese and Russian camps are partially funded by STARTALK, a grant program of the National Security Education Program.
Click here for summer camp online registration and credit card payment through the Glastonbury Web Store homepage.

Online Registration is available for all camps with the exception of the Summer Chess Camp. For Summer Chess Camp registration only, print out the camp flyer and follow the registration directions.
If you are unable to register online, print out and complete this Registration/Emergency Medical Form. Registrations will not be accepted without the emergency information completed. This information will be kept confidential and will be destroyed at the end of the camp. A separate form must be filled out for each student and each camp. Hard copy registrations may be mailed to the address indicated on the camp flyer or returned directly to the Camp Coordinator. See camp flyer for contact information.
Parents/Guardians of students using Glastonbury online will receive an emergency contact/health information form from the camp coordinator. This form is to be returned to the camp coordinator either on or before the first day of camp. The camp coordinator will keep this information with him/her and will honor the confidentiality of ALL information. This form will be destroyed upon the completion of the summer camp.
Registration fees and payment information are indicated on the camp flyer. You may register on Glastonbury Online or by hard copy. For hard copy registration, cash or checks (payable to the title of the camp) are forwarded with the Registration/Emergency Medical Form to the Camp Coordinator. A limited number of scholarships are available based on financial need. Contact the Camp Coordinator for details.
Summer enrichment camps are funded through participant tuition. Should there be insufficient enrollment to run the camp, the full registration fee will be refunded. To withdraw from a camp, contact the camp coordinator. Refund deadlines may apply.
Admission to the camps will be based on order of receipt of completed registration forms. The Camp Coordinator will confirm registration via email or phone.
There is the expectation that students will attend all sessions. Students are expected to arrive on time and, if being transported, picked up promptly at the end of the session.
Transportation is the responsibility of the student or parent/guardian. Please be prompt when picking up students.
Student behavioral expectations are the same as during the regular school year. All school rules apply.
