Highlander Summer offers a morning and afternoon care program that is designed to keep your child safe and active until parents arrive. Our extended day services are provided at a weekly rate.  

Morning Care:  
Campers and students enrolled in our morning care program may be dropped off as early as 7:30 a.m. Mornings are fun at Highlander Summer with age-appropriate games and inside activities to energize and prepare campers for the day. At 8:45 a.m., campers are escorted to their designated meeting place to begin a day of fun-filled activities!   

Afternoon Care:  
After camp ends, campers enrolled in aftercare will be escorted to the cafeteria and may be picked-up as late as 5:45 p.m. Here campers will have fun outside on the playground, inside playing games and coloring, and have a moment to refuel with an extra snack.  If you are running late, a late charge of $1.00 per minute for every minute after 5:45 p.m. will be incurred and charged to your account. 

Drop-in Service:  
Sometimes, your families’ plans change unexpectedly in the morning or afternoon. If your child is not enrolled in extended care, we are happy to provide an “emergency drop-in" service at a rate of $10 for morning care and $10-$25 for afternoon care depending on the time length.   

The Tartan Café offers weekly lunch plans to students enrolled in full-day activities. Our café is fully stocked with a large assortment of daily food choices such as chicken, pizza, macaroni and cheese, burgers, quesadillas, pasta, veggies, rice, beans, baked potatoes, and more!  In addition to our hot lunch options, we offer a daily salad bar, soup, fresh fruit, snacks, and a variety of drinks. Please note that the Tartan Café is not a “peanut-free environment”. 

Pre-K: All Pre-K campers bring lunch from home each day and eat in their classroom with their teacher/counselor.

Middle and Upper School meal plans consist of one entree, two sides, fruit or salad, one dessert, and a drink of choice each day. Middle and Upper School campers and students are not allowed to leave campus for lunch. 

Campers and students who purchase a meal plan will be provided a bag lunch by our cafeteria on field trip days. 

The Tartan Café will be closed during Week 4, July 1st - 3rd. All campers will need to bring a lunch that week. 

Safety of our campers is our number one priority at Highlander Summer! Our campus is gated and staffed with security personnel 24 hours a day. Our security team closely monitors our entrances, school grounds, and Doppler radar for lightening alerts to make sure your child is safe at all times.  

Highlander Summer has a certified nurse on staff every day from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., as well as certified athletic trainers. Parents are invited to leave prescription medicines with the nurse as long as it arrives in the original packaging with a pharmacy label on it. If you child carries an epi-pen, your epi-pen will be stored in the nurse’s office. Epi-pens must also follow the packaging guidelines above.  

Yes, all children ages 4-17 are eligible to attend our camps! 4 year-olds must be fully potty-trained and show proof of age. If your child turns 4 in July, then your child may start attending camp in July after their birthday.

Children in camp should wear shorts, a t-shirt, and sneakers. We do not allow campers to wear flip-flops, slip-ons, or backless shoes.

Each program varies slightly, but most require only a bathing suit and towel. We encourage campers to leave their cell phones at home. They will not be able to carry them around with them on campus. Parents that need to contact their child during the camp day can call our office and we will relay any message needed!

Please call our Auxiliary office at 407-206-1900 x1176 or email us at summer@lhps.org to report all absences.

If dropping off late, park in front of Bradshaw Lower School and walk the child into the Auxiliary office. We will then escort your child to his/her program. If you need to pick up a child early, please contact the Auxiliary office at least 30 minutes prior to the time you plan to arrive. We will have your child waiting for you in the front office where you will be able to sign him/her out.
