WHAT IF THE CLASSES I WANT ARE FULL?
If a class if full, may request to be added to a waiting list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org , but there are no guarantees. Please include your child's name and the desired class. Phone calls will not secure a spot on the waiting list.
IS BEFORE- AND AFTER-CARE AVAILABLE?
After-care is provided by SMMUSD's Child Development Services. There is no before-care.
The link for the SMMUSD/Child Development Services (CDS) childcare WAIT LIST SURVEY will go live RIGHT HERE on Monday, March 4 at 7:30am. If you would like to be added to the CDS childcare waitlist, please complete the survey as soon as you can. Enrollment is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis, determined by the date you complete the online request.
Because space is limited and not guaranteed at CDS, please sign up for after-care as soon as possible. We regret we cannot offer refunds due to after-care limitations.
The CDS childcare program will operate from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (NO before-school childcare will be available). The cost for afternoon childcare is $700.00 for the entire five weeks of the program. No financial assistance will be available for childcare.
To learn more about the after-care program, click here.
Families who are being offered a childcare space will receive an email from SAP@smmusd.org no later than the week of April 8, 2024. The email will contain the sign-up paperwork, including the credit card authorization form. Families not being offered a space will receive an email that they will remain on the wait list until/if something opens up.
Please remember that this is a separate program from Summer Adventure and we cannot offer refunds in the event a child is not offered aftercare.
Please call the CDS office at (310) 399-5865 for more information.
DO I USE MY CHILD'S CURRENT GRADE LEVEL, OR THEIR GRADE LEVEL FOR NEXT YEAR?
When registering you'll be asked to indicate your child's grade level, and that will determine the classes for which your child can enroll. When entering their grade level, select the grade your child will be entering in August 2024.
IS THIS PROGRAM ONLY FOR SMMUSD KIDS?
We work in close partnership with the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMSUD), but Summer Adventure is NOT a part of the district. Therefore, Summer Adventure is open to students who do not attend a school in our district. However, only SMMUSD students are eligible for scholarships, and non-SMMUSD students will need to provide additional information, including proof of age and vaccinations.
DO YOU HAVE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE?
Yes! We have discounted rates for SMMUSD students who are enrolled in the Federal School Lunch Program. Students on the free lunch program pay a discounted rate of $95 for the full, five-week program. Students on the reduced-fee lunch program pay $225 for the program. Be sure to apply the discount code in your shopping cart before you check out in order to receive the scholarship discount. Proof of enrollment in the lunch program is required within three days of registration; you must submit a copy of your letter to receive a scholarship.
SMMUSD students who are NOT on the Federal School Lunch Program can apply for a scholarship during registration. You will need to submit an application, along with financial information. Notification should take place in about a week. A deposit of $95 is required when you apply and will be applied to your tuition. If you do not receive a scholarship, you may elect to pay the full tuition or withdraw from the program and have your deposit refunded.
SHOULD I WAIT TO REGISTER UNTIL I'M INFORMED ABOUT MY SCHOLARSHIP?
CAN MY CHILD TAKE MEDICATION AT SUMMER ADVENTURE?
We can help with that, but you must first complete this medication form and have it signed by a physician. We regret that we do not have access to your child's school records and cannot use the school district's form.
No, please DO NOT wait to register. Classes fill quickly, so register your child as early in the registration period as possible. If you apply but do not receive a scholarship, you may elect to withdraw with no penalty.
If your child is already enrolled in the Federal School Lunch Program, you are guaranteed a scholarship once proof of enrollment is submitted.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Payment can be made online via credit card (Visa and MasterCard only; we do NOT accept American Express or Discover). If you need to pay by check, cash, or money order, you will need to come to in-person registration or contact our office to make an appointment. Checks must be made out to SMMPTA or Santa Monica-Malibu Council of PTAs.
Summer Adventure is operated under the Santa Monica-Malibu PTA Council Tax ID number: 95-4109858.
