2021 Summer Camp Spotlight: Encompass Summer Camp Programs

March 22, 2021

Award-Winning Camps for Ages 2-7

Registration opens on March 30, 2021 at encompassnw.org 

Encompass Summer Camps! For over 15 years, Encompass has been the enrichment summer camp of choice for Snoqualmie Valley families. Every year we offer a variety of unique camp themes in categories like engineering, science, art, people, nature, animals, food, and more.

Each camp includes teacher-planned, age-appropriate, theme-based crafts and activities. Encompass provides healthy snacks daily for all campers and activities take place in both our beautiful outdoor and indoor learning environments.

We pride ourselves on our low teacher-to-student ratio:

  • 1 teacher/assistant for every 5 students

All camps are led by our professional Early Learning staff who teach in our preschool classrooms and assisted by local high school and college students, ensuring that your kids are getting a quality camp experience.

Our camps are designed for typically-developing children. If special accommodations are needed for your child to participate, please contact Early Learning Manager Julie Forslin before you register to discuss how we may be able to facilitate your child’s participation. (If suitable accommodations can be made, additional fees may apply.)

COVID-19 Safety Precautions for 2021

In order to provide a safe and healthy environment for your children, there will be a new format this summer, including:

  • A variety of fun activities that minimize contact and promote fun.
  • Limiting the number of people in classrooms to 12 (10 campers and 2 staff).
  • Minimizing the number of people in the building. All drop off and pick up will happen at the front door in order to support social distancing.
  • Daily health and temperature screenings of all staff and children in the building upon arrival.
  • Staggered playground time scheduled by age group, and the play structure will not be used.
  • Children will stay with the same group of people at all times.
  • Children will be provided with their own art supplies for the week. Items like crayons, markers, and pencils will be in boxes with the children’s names and stored in their cubbies for the week.
  • Staff will encourage and supervise handwashing throughout the day during transitions and whenever necessary.
  • Disinfecting of surfaces will happen throughout the day and deep cleaning every evening.

We are committed to providing fun and engaging activities for your child while staying safe and healthy. If you have any questions, please reach out to Early Learning Manager Julie Forslin.
