At Kazoo School Summer Session students engage with unique learning and leadership experiences.

Our school’s mission extends into the summer, providing opportunities for active growth of the mind and heart. Kazoo School Summer Session enthusiastically celebrates extraordinary minds and encourages teamwork and creative problem solving. So whether you attend Kazoo School year-round or are a student at another school, Kazoo School’s Summer Session offers ALL children entering preschool through 8th grade week-long, half-day and full-day camps that explore the visual and performing arts, science, sports and our local and world community.

Kazoo School Summer Session instructors are experts in their field. Some of our instructors are classroom teachers, while others work in our after school program, as substitute teachers, or for other local programs. All of our instructors love sharing their special talents and interests with kids! Many have degrees in their topic area and years of experience under their belts. Many of them are certified in first aid and CPR. We hold our instructors to very high standards, and they meet them!

Have you been considering Kazoo School for your children? Some families like to use Summer Session as an opportunity for their children to “try out” Kazoo School. It’s a really great way for kids (particularly preschoolers) to get familiar with the classrooms, schedule and staff. Our Head of School is available to meet with you to discuss any questions that you might have about attending Kazoo School.

We never take a vacation from learning, so at Kazoo School we offer programs to enrich the months students spend away from the traditional school schedule. We invite current students, former students, and those children not associated with the Kazoo School who are interested in an exciting summer filled with academic enrichment to join us!

 
We have been very happy with Kazoo’s summer session. The hours are perfect for our work schedule and the cost is very reasonable compared to what we would pay a full-time babysitter. (Our children) have so much fun with all of the activities and playing with their friends, that there have been days they have not wanted to leave! We are also happy that we can drop them off to a familiar environment and know they are safe and being well cared for.

Summer Session Details

Registration

Kazoo School Summer Session is open to ALL children PreKindergarten through entering 8th Grade, regardless of where they attend school during the rest of the year. PreK students should be 3 years old and potty trained by the time of their camp.

The Registration deadline for each session is 10am the Friday before the program starts. We want to make sure that we have time to prepare for your student’s arrival on Monday morning.

Hours

Kazoo School Summer Session morning programs start every day at 9am, and go through 12:30pm. There is then a half hour transition time in which morning-only campers get picked up, afternoon-only campers get dropped off, and full-day campers eat their lunch and get a few minutes of outdoor free play time. Our afternoon programs run from 1:00-4:30pm. If you need care before or after these times, Early Day is available starting at 8am, and Late Day goes until 5:30pm. Early and Late Day are available at an extra cost.

Meals and Snacks

Campers should pack snacks and a lunch (if they are full-day campers).  Water bottles should also be packed, as hydration is very important to us, particularly in the hot summer months!

Financial Arrangements

We provide a $25 discount for campers signed up for full-day camp. We also offer a 15% discount for siblings registering for Summer Session. Siblings’ registration should be of equal or lesser value than the first camper’s registration. Kazoo School Summer Session is able to offer financial assistance. A limited amount of financial assistance is available. For more information, please call us at 269-345-3239.

Refunds and Cancellation

A 75% refund will be given for cancellations made at least 30 days prior to the session date. Kazoo School reserves the right to cancel any program that does not meet minimum enrollment requirements. Registrants will be notified at least 2 weeks prior to the session start date and will receive a full refund for camps cancelled due to low enrollment.

About our Counselor Training Program

Counselors-In-Training go through an application process that includes recommendations from two adults and a written essay. Once chosen, our Counselors-In-Training participate in a Leadership Camp. The Leadership Camp is designed to increase responsibility, confidence, and includes a first aid component. While the Counselors-In-Training will never be without an adult presence, we encourage them to take initiative as they support the instructors and staff.

Licensing

Kazoo School Summer Sessions are licensed under the State of Michigan and follow all guidelines and requirements.
