Community Education Summer Camps 2022
Allen ISD offers a variety of camps for children ages 36 months through 7th grade. Your child’s camp day will include an assortment of fun, engaging activities as well as outside recess. Summer camps will be conducted by Allen ISD staff.
There is at least one cooking camp each week where the campers get to eat their projects. Please keep this in mind, especially if your child has food allergies. Please advise all camp teachers of any allergies. School nurses are not on campus during summer camp.
LOCATIONS: Camp locations will alternate between Evans Elementary, 1225 Walnut Spring Dr., and Olson Elementary, 1751 East Exchange Parkway.
TIMES: Camp hours are 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
DROP OFF/PICK UP: This year, camper drop off will be curbside; we will update pick up information as we get closer to the start of camp.
LUNCH: Your child will need to bring a sack lunch and drink Monday through Thursday. Each Friday, pizza, popsicles and a drink will be provided for lunch.
COST: The fee for most camps is only $125 per camp/per student. The weeks of May 31-June 3 and July 5-8 are four-day camps and the tuition for those weeks will be $100. Some camps have an additional supply fee, and this is noted in the individual camp descriptions.
REGISTER: Online registration begins April 19, 2022, at 6:30 am. Phone registration will begin on April 20, 2022. Please make sure you have an Eleyo account prior to calling to register. If you don’t, please create one. If you have questions, you also can call 972-727-0502 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW TO REGISTER: Registration directions are online, visit www.allenisd.org/summercampsregister. In 2020, Allen ISD Community Education moved to a new registration platform called Eleyo. If you attended camp last summer, the Father-Daughter Ball, the Mother-Son Dance or are in Kids Club this school year (or last year), you should already have an Eleyo account so you won’t need to create a new one.
Starting April 11 (until April 18) you can either create an account in Eleyo or log into your existing account and update your information following the link above. Add each of your campers to the free “Community Education Summer Camp Account Creation or Update” Course, so that you can complete the camp questionnaire for each child prior to the April 19th registration date. This will save time during registration.
REFUNDS: Refunds will be granted, less a $25 per camp spot administrative fee, when requested by noon five working days prior to the start of camp. Cancellation dates can be found on the schedule grid linked below and are also listed at the bottom of this web page. Camp tuition may instead be transferred to a later week of camp if you register for the same camper and if there are any availabilites. No exceptions.
Choosing a Camp
When choosing a camp for your preschooler, look for camps based on the child’s age at the time of the camp. Campers must be potty trained, and a change of clothes will be necessary for children ages 36 months to 5 years. Camps for preschoolers include a 15-minute quiet time. For elementary grade campers, choose a camp for the grade just completed. You do not have to be a resident of Allen or a student in Allen ISD to attend our camps.
