2017 Afternoon Camps

Open to all Harborfields children! Whether your child prefers an afternoon camp or takes Summer Academy, these “later camp” options offer flexibility and versatility to your summer schedule.

For those children enrolled in Summer Academy, you can drop off your child at Summer Academy at 9:00 am. Our HACEF instructor will pick up enrolled campers at Summer Academy dismissal and bring them back to a classroom or outdoors where they will eat a packed lunch and then get ready to have fun! You’ll pick up your child at 2:30 pm. It’s the best of both worlds…Valuable learning time in the morning–and fun with friends after!
