Required forms and identification

In accordance with the Virginia State Law and the Virginia Department of Social Services, Norfolk Collegiate requires the following information from each registered participant:

  • A copy of the student’s Virginia Health Form (You can obtain a copy from your school. Current Norfolk Collegiate students will already have one on file.)
  • Identification verification through a copy of the participant’s birth certificate, passport, child military ID OR proof of enrollment at a Virginia school (example: copy of a report card)


Your child will not be confirmed in a camp until all of the following documents have been received by the summer programs office: application, Virginia Health Form and identification verification document. Parents will receive a confirmation email after registration is complete. Parents will also receive a detailed, informational email regarding specifics of the program one week before the start of registered programs.

Refunds and cancellations

Refunds must be requested two weeks before the start of the requested camp. Twenty percent of the total fee is non-refundable.  No refund will be given if a camper is dismissed due to disciplinary action. Norfolk Collegiate Summer Programs reserve the right to cancel any camp due to low enrollment. Participates will be notified of cancelled camps at least 7 days before the start of the camp. Fees for canceled camps will be refunded or may be applied to another camp.


Extended Day Program

Morning and Afternoon Care is a place for your child to get pumped up in the morning for the day’s activities, and to wind down after a full day of fun and excitement.  Each camper will be escorted by staff members to their designated camp five minutes before it begins. An afternoon snack will be provided to campers enrolled in Afternoon Care. The hours of extended day care are 7-9 a.m. and 3-6 p.m., and the fee is $30 per week for morning care and $50 per week for afternoon care. This fee will not be prorated. In case of an emergency, there is a one-time drop-in rate of $14 per day for the morning or afternoon session. There will not be extended care services provided for camps at the Granby Street campus and no transportation provided between the two schools.

Field trips

Some camps include field trips in the local area. Transportation for these trips is provided by school buses with certified drivers. Norfolk Collegiate’s Summer Program teachers accompany campers on all field trips. Your registration form includes blanket field trip permission; however, you will be notified of specific field trips before they occur.

Emergency/medical information

Please provide detailed information for your child in the medical and emergency contact section of the application. If your child does not attend Norfolk Collegiate, we must have a copy on file of his/her Virginia Health Form, which includes an immunization record and recent physical. If medication must be given to your child during camp hours (including epi-pens and medication related to asthma), a separate form for medication administration and authorization must be completed by the parent/guardian and child's physician. Please contact the Summer Program’s Office for this form. All medication must be dropped off in the Summer Program’s Office by the parent/guardian.

Students MUST bring their OWN lunch in a labeled bag or lunch box each day. There will NOT be any bag lunches provided this year.Students may also bring additional morning and afternoon snacks and drinks. Refrigeration will not be provided for student lunches.
