Highland Park Elementary

Scottie Camp General Information

Highland Park Scottie Camp LogoDuring the first 2 weeks of summer, our very own Highland Park teachers will lead 2 carefully selected, 5-day enrichment courses designed to integrate different curriculum areas and to be a non-traditional, multi-aged experience for students. The price of the 5-day courses includes all tuition and fees. Core camp hours are 9:00am-3:00pm and start June 1 until June 12, 2020. Campers can take advantage of our flat-rate child care which is available from 7:30am-9:00am and 3:00pm-5:30pm. The camps are available to all Austin area students. Campers are challenged to push the limits of their learning while working in small, cooperative, multi-age groups. 

Camps are chosen by a lottery system, so please prioritize your camper's choice on the registration form. After completing the Registration Form, wait for confirmation of which camp you got, then families will need to create an account on School Cash Online and pay for tuition. After tuition is paid, families will receive a receipt via e-mail and that will serve as camp confirmation.  No changes are allowed after camp is paid.  Cancellations are accepted until May 8, 2020.
