As of right now we are hoping to host camp at the UM and FIU campus. Both UM and FIU will make a decision regarding camps as we get closer to the summer.
Camp registration is currently open for the waitlist until UM and FIU make a final decision on camps. The $5 waitlist fee will be credited to the accounts if camp is opened and your child attends our camp program. If camps are closed this summer, you will not be reimbursed for the waitlist application fee.
Campers are separated into age groups. Usually the groups consist of campers ages 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-14.
Our summer camp program emphasizes the importance of outdoor play. All campers will participate in outdoor activities regardless of age or gender. In addition to our already physical schedule, we do offer an additional fitness mini elective that campers can participate in.
All camp locations follow very similar schedules and activities.
Early Care: 7:30 am - 9:30 am
Camp Time: 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
After Care: 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Discounts are based on the number of weeks attended and applied automatically after the initial deposit is made. Our registration process is done by a third party company and accounts need to be activated in order for Wise Choice staff members to adjust the invoice. To activate an account, make the deposit payment at the end of the registration process. All invoices are usually updated with the discounted price within 24 hours.

Campers will receive all camp supplies on the first day of camp. We do not distribute camp supplies prior to the first day of camp.
All campers must be 5-14 years of age. We do not accept 4 year old campers in our program. Campers must be 5 years old prior to the first day of camp.
Unfortunately, we do not offer a spring camp because the vacation period for the university and elementary/middle school do not coincide. We also do not offer a winter camp because most of our staff and personnel travel or prefer to take the break to spend time with their family.
We have multiple staff members that are CPR certified in both locations. We believe that it is important to have staff members that are CPR certified but not all staff members are CPR certified.
Mini-electives are chosen every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday morning by the camper. Mini-electives have a certain number of spaces available. Once an elective becomes full, campers will have to choose among the remaining electives. To be fair, we rotate the way that mini-electives are selected throughout the week.
Yes, our summer camp program does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or any other basis of discrimination prohibited by law.
