Program Schedule

Summer Challenge classes run from 9:00 AM to 2:20 PM Monday through Friday. All students must arrive to assigned classrooms by 9:00 AM, where attendance will be taken by the teaching team. Families must report a student’s absence by e-mailing the teacher at the teacher’s UW e-mail address and copying the Robinson Center at rcsummer@uw.edu prior to 8:30 AM. There are before-class and after-class programs available for an additional fee.

Class descriptions for 2021 will be posted in mid-January. However, you can see the Summer 2020 class descriptions using the 'Course Offerings' tab to the right.

Before Class Care

For Summer Challenge students, we offer before-class care from 8:15 AM – 9:00 AM. We supervise all students and provide fun activities to keep them engaged. Teacher aides will escort all children to their registered classes by 9:00 AM. Families may register for before-class care only after they are placed into a class. Placement is based on space availability (first-come, first-served). The last day to register for the before-class option and the last day to withdraw and receive a refund have not yet been determined. For reference, the 2020 fee was $50 for the three-week session.

After-Class Care

For Summer Challenge students, we also offer after-class care from 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM. We supervise all students and provide fun activities to keep them engaged. Teacher aides will escort all children from their class to the site of the after-class program. Families may register for after-class care only after they are placed into a class. Placement is based on space availability (first-come, first-served). The last day to register for the after-class option and the last day to withdraw and receive a refund for after-class care have yet to be determined. For your reference, the 2020 fee for after-class care was $150 for the three-week session.

Information for the First Day

Before classes begin, we will send you all of the information you need for the first day of Summer Challenge. You will receive a copy of your class syllabus, a welcome letter from the teacher, a family handbook, and a campus map. Information for the first day of the 2021 session will be emailed in the second half of June.

On the first day of class, your child’s teacher will give a brief introduction to the course and distribute the syllabus. Parents are requested to stay with their child for this course introduction, after which they are invited to attend our parent orientation to the Robinson Center summer programs.
