Camp Cool Down

LSNC has 20 slots available each week for our “Camp Cool Down” extended day program which runs from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. At Camp Cool Down, campers can unwind from an action-packed day of exploration by playing games, reading, making art, or otherwise relaxing outside. Campers get an extra two hours of fun and parents have the benefit of a later pick-up time. Please be advised that Tykes campers are not eligible for Camp Cool Down.

Optional Bus Transportation to Yankee

Enroll your campers at either site and drop them off at one convenient Ann Arbor location. This optional add-on includes daily round-trip bus transportation between LSNC and YAM, followed by Camp Cool Down until 5:30pm at LSNC. Families who do not sign up for bus transportation will need to drop off and pick up at YAM at 8:30am and 3:30pm.

Age Groups and Group Requests

Camp age groups are determined by grade completed in the previous school year. At LSNC, age groups are: Tykes (four- and five-year olds), K/1 (completed full day Young 5's, Kindergarten, or First Grade), 2/3 (completed Second or Third Grade), 4/5 (completed Fourth or Fifth Grade), or 6/7/8 (completed Sixth, Seventh, or Eighth Grade). At YAM, age groups are: 2/3 (completed Second or Third Grade) or 4/5 (completed Fourth, or Fifth Grade).

Most K/1 camp groups at LSNC have multiple sessions with the same theme and age group to accommodate high demand. When multiple sessions for the same age group are offered, families will be able to indicate on their health profile if their camper would like to be in camp with a specific friend or family member. We will do our best to accommodate these group requests, but cannot guarantee that campers will be placed together.

Please note that 5-year-old campers who have completed a full day Young 5's program may choose between Tykes and K/1 camps depending on their needs. Tykes camps offer more play-based and open-ended activities and a lay-down rest time during Chillaxation. If you would like to speak to our staff regarding which session is right for your camper, please email Zach Wood, Camp Programs Manager, or call 734-205-9531.

Camp Session Limit

Campers are allowed to register for up to three summer camp weeks at each site (LSNC and YAM), for a total of up to six weeks at Unity in Learning camps.

Camp Cancellation Policy

All camp registrations will require a non-refundable deposit paid upon registration. Any cancellation made up to 14 days prior to the start date of a camp program will receive a full refund minus the non-refundable deposit. Any cancellation made within 14 days of the start date of a camp program will not be eligable to for a refund.

All cancellation requests must be submitted through your CampDoc registration portal or in writing. Refunds will be issued through the CampDoc system and may take up to 4 weeks for processing.

If a participant fails to attend a registered session without notice, no refund will be issued.  In cases of homesickness, dismissal or voluntary withdrawal, there will be no refund of any fees.

We reserve the right to grant exceptions in situations as needed. 

If you choose to switch your registration to a different date, please note that this is only possible if openings exist. This must occur 15 days prior to the first day of your event. There will be a $10 processing fee charged for each switched registration.

Please note that this policy differs from the cancellation policy used for other programs. If you are cancelling a program that is not camp please refer to our standard cancellation policy
