Age and/or grade requirements are listed with each individual camp. Please use the grade the child will be entering in Fall 2019 or his/her age at the time s/he will attend camp. Please adhere to the age/grade requirements for each camp when you register your child as we have planned activities that are age-appropriate for each group. 

lunches and snacks

The Prep is proud to be a NUT-FREE facility. Please keep this in mind as you are packing meals for your camper. Each day you will need to send a a lunch with your child. If your child is staying for an extended day, please add an additional snack and remind your child to save it for the afternoon. Please send your child a refillable water bottle each day.

If you register for a camp after the lunch ordering window you will not be able to order hot lunch. We are not able to make any substitutions to lunch orders.

refund and cancellation policy

At The Prep of South Tampa, we strive to provide fun, hands-on, educational camps for your children. Some of our camps require us to pre-order supplies well in advance of when the camp begins. With this in mind, our refund policy is as follows:

  • All Cooking, Science and Art registrations must be canceled by April 1, 2019 in order to receive a full refund. Registrations canceled after April 1, 2019 will not be eligible to receive a refund.

  • Basketball, Floor Hockey, Baseball/Softball, Soccer, Photography and Gymnastics camps must be cancelled 30 days prior to the start of the specific camp. Any registration that is canceled within 30 days of the start of a camp will not be eligible for a refund.

behavior policy

We will not tolerate bullying, hitting or other violent behavior. Parents or guardians will be informed of inappropriate behavior and contacted to discuss corrective solutions. Camp counselors reserve the right to immediately dismiss a child from camp due to violent or abusive behavior.  If a child is asked to leave the refund policy will be as listed below.

Repeated or consistently disruptive behavior - “Three strikes” policy:

  1. First instance – The child will receive a 15 minute time out and the parent or guardian will be notified at the end of the day.

  2. Second instance - A parent or guardian will be asked to pick the child up and has the option to work on a corrective solution or withdraw their child from camp for the remainder of the week with no refund.

  3. Third instance –The child will be dismissed from remaining days of camp with no refund and a parent or guardian will be asked to pick them up immediately.  If the child is enrolled in future weeks, those registrations will also be canceled and 100-percent of camp fees for future weeks will be refunded.

registration information

After choosing which camps you'd like to sign your children up for, please create an account in our RecDesk online registration system. Please enter yourself as "Head of Household" and then enter each child individually. It is important to fill out all the information including emergency contacts, health issues and current phone numbers as this is the information we will use in case of an emergency. You will also be required to fill out two or three registration forms upon registering for camp. The forms will only need to be filled out one time per summer so please take the time to do it now. After creating a family account, you will be able to register multiple children for multiple camps during the same transaction. Our new system is amazing with a little extra work at the front end! 

i've registered. what's next?

About a week prior to your specific camp starting, you will receive a packet of information via email. This packet will give you details about our car line, any changes to the schedule, what your child should wear/bring, etc. Specific information about each camp is also located in the "Notes" section on the registration site and should be printed on your registration receipt.
