Summer Day Camp Waitlist

Please read through the following items regarding our Summer Day Camp program:
  • Girls Place Policies and Practices

    The following section includes information regarding payments, releases and our programming. Please read this information carefully. You will be held responsible for all of the content. Please contact Christi at with any questions.
  • Registration Fee

    Girls Place requires a fee of $25 when registering for summer day camp. You will be directed to PayPal to pay this fee immediately after completing the form. This fee is nonrefundable and nontransferable. Please DO NOT register if you think you may have an outstanding balance with Girls Place. Members with debt from the after school or athletic program cannot participate in the summer program until their balance is paid off. Please call (352) 373-4475 to check the status of your account. Please note that registration does not guarantee you a spot in the summer program.
  • Membership

    Membership is required to participate in any Girls Place program. Membership fees are $20 for one child and $40 for families with two or more siblings who live in the same home. Membership is nonrefundable and nontransferable. Girls who have participated in after school and athletics in 2017 have already paid their membership fees. New members will be assessed membership when they register for the summer program. Please call (352) 373-4475 if you would like to verify that your membership is paid. Membership is required to secure space in the program.
  • Weekly Fees

    The first week of fees, regardless of pay rate or week attending during the summer, is due upon registration. Space in the program is NOT SECURE without membership and the first week of fees paid. SPACE IS LIMITED TO 150 GIRLS.

    Summer Day Camp is paid in advance at a rate of $79 per week. Direct siblings of a child attending are billed at $68 per week, but only if both children attend during that week. Girls Place does not have part-time rates for Summer Day Camp; therefore, checking in for one day requires payment for the entire week.

  • Financial Assistance

    Limited financial assistance is available. Please visit our website to apply and contact with any questions.

    Please know that we are an Early Learning Coalition (ELC) provider and ELC is fortunate to be able to offer assistance to qualifying families at much lower rates than our assistance can provide. We do not charge weekly fees above and beyond the rate determined by ELC. Please contact ELC with any questions. 352-375-4110

  • Hours

    Operational hours are 7:30am - 6:00pm Monday through Friday.

    GP office hours are 11:00 am-6:00 pm - payments must be made during normal business hours or online

    Early Drop Off is available at 7:00am for $1 per day per child, payable in cash when the child is dropped off in the morning.

  • Activities

    Girls participate in a variety of activities throughout the summer that focus on core values held by Girls Place including athletics, character development, and social and life skills. Girls typically participate in field trips several times a week that include swimming, nature trails, museums, libraries, community service and other structured activities. Schedules are available on a weekly basis during the program to inform parents of the field trips for the upcoming week.
  • Groups

    Children are divided into age groups called by color names based on the grade in school in which the child will be attending in August. Pink Group: (K‐1st), Red Group: (2nd‐3rd), Yellow Group: (4th‐5th), Green Group: (6th‐7th), Blue Group: (8th‐9th). If your child is being held back, please be sure to indicate that grade level. We want to avoid moving girls back during the summer or at the beginning of the school year.
