  • What should campers wear?

    Because Maryland is hot and humid during the summer, campers should wear comfortable, light-weight clothes. They may wish to bring a sweater or sweatshirt with them as the air conditioning can be cool in the building. Students in certain specialty programs may have certain requirements such as the sports camps.  
  • How does ICS Summer Programs handle changes and refunds?

    • Any changes made to your registration BEFORE May 1st will be refunded except the non-refundable deposit.  
    • If any withdrawal requests are made BETWEEN May 1st and the start of camp, any camp fees that have been paid, excluding the non-refundable deposit, will be held on your account. These funds may be applied to future registrations for up to one year.

    • Snacks are included during After Care. 
  • Do I need to notify ICS if my child will be absent?

    • While it is not required, we do appreciate notice if a child will be absent so teachers can plan ahead. You may call or email to let us know about an absence or early pick-up.  
    • Please note: If your child’s program is going on a field trip you must arrive by the time of departure. If you arrive late and miss the departure time your camper will not be allowed to stay as there is no childcare provided. Notice and information about field trip dates and times will be emailed home at least one week prior.
