Cardinal Summer - Registration is currently closed for Summer 2024

Get ready for an exciting summer with Crete Public Schools! Cardinal Summer is the ultimate summer experience for students currently in grades K-11. At Cardinal Camps, we believe summer should be more than just a break from school. It should be a time for exploration, fun, and learning new skills. That is why we have designed our Cardinal Camps to be engaging, unique, and, most importantly, fun!

Our goal is to keep those academic juices flowing in the summer months by offering a range of activities that will challenge and inspire our students. Whether your child is into sports, the arts, or science, we have something for everyone.

We understand that summers can be busy, so we have made our Cardinal Camps flexible. You can participate in all four weeks or just one or two camps that pique your interest. It is entirely up to you and all camps are FREE!

Elementary Cardinal Camp times will be:

  • Session 1: 12:30-1:45

  • Session 2: 2:00-3:30

Intermediate, Middle School, and High School Camp times will be:

  • Session 1: 12:30-2:00

  • Session 2: 2:15-3:45

The difference in start and end times allows for effective transportation.

Transportation will be provided for those who request it within the upcoming registration process. Students utilizing transportation for camps must stay for both camp sessions. Pick-ups and drop-offs will happen at designated locations and not be door-to-door pick-ups.

Free meals will be served at the Elementary (Door #10), Intermediate (Door #1), and Middle School (Door #15) throughout Cardinal Summer for any child ages 1-18. Any child of eligible age may eat at any location. Breakfast will be served from 8:30-9:15 and lunch from 11:45-12:45.

Registration will open on March 18th and will be located on our district website. Please note that all camp sessions on this flyer are subject to change before registration opens. Information on this flyer is for your thinking and planning purposes and may change before registration.

We hope this information can begin the planning process for your summer, and your child will join us for Cardinal Summer!
