Summer 2019 Camp Registration

Registration


Thank you for considering our summer camp program and the opportunity to experience our international community. If you decide to send your child they will no doubt come away with lifelong memories.

All children are grouped by age and grade, with each group being made up with 8 - 10 students per coach. Class sizes are limited to help campers gain higher engagement levels and allow our talented instructors greater opportunity to focus on the needs of the group. FIS summer camps strive to provide an enjoyable and unique experience for all our participants.

A hot lunch and snacks (morning and afternoon) can be added if needed. For those days when kids are on a field trip or an outdoor adventure activity, lunch and snacks will be pre-packaged to take along.

Registration for Summer Camps at FIS is completed online. A separate registration form is required for each participant. Once successful registration is complete, parents will receive an email confirmation.
