Summer Camp

Clonlara School

1289 Jewett Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48104


Our School Age Camp, founded in 1984, offers all of the traditional camp arts, crafts, games, swimming and sports to children who are kindergarten graduates through 5th grade . We will take buses to Buhr Pool each day for swimming. Children are encouraged to participate in the planning of activities in order to accommodate their individual and group interests. It includes choice time in a mixed age setting as well as a group time based on age. This gives the younger children a much needed opportunity to connect with a single teacher, and the older children a chance to work on more advanced long term projects. We are committed to a quality and fun summer camp program!

During camp, our curriculum centers on a different theme and corresponding field trip each week. Some of the exciting field trips we planned in previous summers included: a behind-the-scenes tour of the Big House, a trip to an indoor trampoline park, a beach day at Silver Lake, and an all-day field trip to Rolling Hills Waterpark! This summer you can expect we’ll be taking just as amazing field trips!

Our camp overnight for campers and their families takes place in July at Hudson Mills Metropark. All families are welcome, whether your child attends camp that week or not.

Community Day Camp is for children post kindergarten through pre-sixth grade.

Scheduling Options

As a service to our families, we will continue to offer a morning only program at camp. Morning only campers will be able to participate in a wide range of activities with the all day campers including: choice time, group time, interest areas, and Fun Friday activities. Families who choose this option can drop off as early as 7:30AM and pick up no later than 12:30PM. Morning only campers will be picked up before lunch. There will be no morning only option on days that we take all day field trips. To ensure that we are able to accommodate as many families as possible, scheduling priority will be given to all day campers.


Payment: Camp is divided into three sessions, and payment for your child’s enrollment in each session is due on the first day of that session. See the enrollment form and parents’ materials for the current payment schedule.

Scholarship Information

As part of CDC’s mission, we offer financial assistance to families who qualify. Scholarships are limited, and are approved by the board of directors scholarship committee.


You must be employed and/or enrolled in school or a job training program (includes local community colleges, technical programs, high school completion, etc.). Undergraduate students with a proven history of low-income attending four-year academic institutions may be eligible. Graduate students are not eligible. You must contact your local Department of Human Services (DHS) to determine your eligibility for their Child Daycare Program as well as Child Care Network (CCN).



Scholarship award amounts will depend upon each applicant’s childcare schedule and fees. Scholarships are designed to pay a portion of the total childcare cost for each child. The parent(s) is expected to pay the remaining portion. A payment must be received prior to awarding the scholarship. Scholarships are paid out every three months to ensure all families have equal opportunity to apply. A reduction of childcare hours will reflect a change in the scholarship awarded. If a family is three (3) months in arrears, attendance will be discontinued until the past due payment is made.
