List of 9 frequently asked questions.

  • When does the registration process begin for summer camps?

    Online registration will begin for Summer Quest 2023 on Wednesday, February 15, 2023 at 10 a.m.
  • Can I register for camp online?

    Yes! A link for online registration will be posted on Wednesday, February 15, 2023.
  • Can I pay for summer camps with a credit card or by using a student account?

    Yes, we do accept credit cards. However, Collegiate families cannot charge summer camp tuition to their student accounts. We only accept credit cards and checks. Checks should be made out to "Collegiate Summer Quest:"
    Collegiate School-Summer Quest
    103 North Mooreland Rd
    Richmond, VA 23229
  • How does the deposit process work when I register my child for camps?

    Prior to May 15, each participant must submit a non-refundable $100 deposit for each camp that he or she is registering for. (Example: If your child registers for four camps, you must submit a deposit for $100 X 4 = $400.) The total deposit (if your child registers for multiple camps or if you have multiple children registering for camps) can be paid in one check written to "Collegiate Summer Quest" or online. The deposit is never refundable unless your child does not get added to the roster due to a full enrollment for that camp. The Summer Quest Office cannot reserve a spot for your child until we receive a $100 deposit for each camp that child is registering for. The $100 is a portion of the total tuition for each camp; therefore, if you pay a $100 deposit for a $200 camp, your remaining balance is $100. The remaining balance for all camps is due by May 15 for us to be able to continue reserving a spot for your child on the camp roster(s).
  • What is the May 15 payment deadline, and can I still register for camps after this date?

    Yes, you can still register for any Summer Quest Camp after May 15, but many camps will be filled by this date. When you register for a camp after May 15, you must submit the full camp fee due (rather than just a $100 deposit).

    Prior to May 15, you may reserve your child's spot on camp rosters by paying a non-refundable deposit of $100 per camp. By May 15, you must pay the remaining amount due for all of the camps your child has registered for if you would like to continue to reserve your child's spot on those camp rosters. If we do not receive the remainder of the tuition owed by May 15, your child will be removed from the roster in order to open up a space for any campers on the waiting list. (Many camps fill enrollment prior to May 15.)  

    The $100 per program deposit is nonrefundable unless a camp is cancelled by Summer Quest. If a participant chooses to change his or her registration, a notice must be written and sent to two weeks prior to the start of camp. The two-week notice will qualify the participant for a payment voucher, minus the deposit, that must be used during Summer Quest 2023. If a two-week notice is not sent, no payment voucher or refund will be issued. The camp credit cannot be transferred to next year.
  • Many camps fill their enrollments very early in the Spring; so, how do I know if a camp is full already and how does the waiting list process work?

    If you are trying to register online and a camp is full, the system will notify you that you are being placed on a waiting list. If you are placed on a waiting list, no payment is required. If space becomes available in the camp your child is waiting on, the Summer Quest Office will call your home phone to see if you would still like to fill the opening or if you would prefer to pass the opening to the next person on the waiting list.
  • Can I call or email the Summer Quest Office to "reserve" a spot at camp without submitting a registration form and payment?

    No, we cannot "reserve" spots at camp without receiving a completed registration form and payment; therefore, names will not be taken over the phone or via email to "reserve" a spot at camp prior to the Summer Quest receiving the completed registration form. We must receive the completed registration form and a non-refundable deposit of $100 per camp prior to May 15, or a payment of the full tuition after May 15, for your child to hold a spot for a Summer Quest camp.
  • I have more than one child who wants to attend summer camps at Collegiate; so, do I need to submit more than one registration form?

    Yes, please submit a registration form or create an online account for EACH child who is attending Summer Quest camps. Please do not submit a registration form that has more than one child's information written on the form. Each camper needs a separate registration form. If you only have one registration form on hand, you may photocopy the original form, download another form from our website, pick up another registration form at the various front offices across campus or from the Summer Quest Office in Luck Hall or email the Summer Quest Office if you would like us to send you an additional registration form in the mail.
  • Does Collegiate Summer Quest staff provide sunscreen or apply (or reapply) sunscreen to campers?

    No, Parents/guardians should apply sunscreen (if needed) on your camper prior to the start of camp. Please note that the Collegiate Summer Quest staff will NOT be responsible for providing sunscreen or applying (or reapplying) sunscreen on your camper. Your camper will need to be able to apply (or reapply) the sunscreen on their own. If sunscreen is sent with your camper, it should be placed in a sealed plastic bag labeled with your child's first and last name and should be stored in their personal bag. Collegiate Summer Quest staff will NOT collect or maintain sunscreen brought in from campers. You can also provide your student with a labeled hat, a sun shirt or other sun protective clothing.
