Mask Requirement Update - 06.30.2020
Individuals are now required to wear a face covering/mask that covers an individual's nose and mouth. This includes staff and participants at Camp Summit. Please make sure your camper(s) attend Camp with a mask- which they will be required to wear throughout the day. Exclusion to wearing the mask include when drinking from their water bottle, lunch/snack time, nap time for the 5 year olds and when they are participating in vigorous activity (outside). Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
For Lee's Summit Residents already enrolled in Camp Summit:
Lee’s Summit Parks & Recreation is pleased to announce Camp Summit will be offered this summer to Lee’s Summit Residents who have successfully completed the enrollment process. Please note, program registration has reached capacity and additional enrollments will not be accepted.
Camp Summit began on Monday, June 15, 2020. To maintain a safe camp and adhere to Covid-19 restrictions, the program will have adjusted protocols and procedures which are posted below. LSPR asks that guardians please review the additional protocols and procedures to ensure the safety of participants, their families and staff. To verify receipt and understanding of the expectations please print out and complete the acknowledgement/waiver form, also found below – this must be done before your camper(s) can attend the program.
LSPR encourages guardians to pay online using the quick payment link at the top of this page or by phone at 816-969-1540 or 816-969-1556.
Additional Protocols/Procedures for Camp Summit 2020
***The acknowledgement/waiver form below MUST be filled out and turned in before your camper can attend Camp Summit***
Swimming at Summit Waves
Campers age 5-8 will swim on Monday and Wednesdays only (this is a change from what is listed on the additional protocols and procedures form)
- Campers age 9-11 will swim on Tuesday and Thursdays only
- Due to the nature of swim time this summer, campers will NOT have access to the concession stand during swim time.
For those not yet enrolled in Camp Summit:
- Due to restrictions put in place related to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Lee’s Summit Parks & Recreation has to make the difficult decision of discontinuing enrollments for the 2020 Summer effective immediately. Restrictions on number of individuals gathered in a common space require LSPR to take extraordinary measures related to the Camp Summit program to ensure the safety and well-being of campers, parents and staff and require LSPR to enroll a reduced number of campers for the 2020 summer.
- We do not have a wait list for the program.
- Enrollment for the 2021 Summer will begin March 1 for Lee’s Summit Residents and April 1 for Non-Residents.
There are two fees associated with Camp Summit.
The first is a one-time, non-refundable enrollment fee. The enrollment fee is $105.00 and that fee is paid along with the submission of an enrollment form which can be submitted online or printed off and submitted in person. This fee holds the campers spot in camp, gets them three camp t-shirts and a season pass to Summit Waves.
The weekly fee is $120.00/week. That is a flat fee and it does not matter how many days per week the camper attends. You only have to pay for the weeks that you need to send your camper so once the enrollment form has been submitted and the enrollment fee has been paid, then you just pay the $120.00 for whatever week(s) you need your camper to attend.
If you need to print out a childcare statement, please call (816) 969-1540.
