Camps and Dismissal Days

Discovery Link offers full day programming on most DPS Teacher Planning and Assessment days (Discovery Days) and holds full day camps during several days of the holiday breaks (Discovery Camp).

Pre-registration is required for all dismissal day and school break camps and is not included in your regular before and after school cost. Registration is taken on a first come, first served basis for these programs. Upon registration, a confirmation letter will be sent via e-mail or standard mail to confirm your child’s registration. Parents/Guardians who have not registered for Dismissal Day or Break Camps and use drop-in care for their child(ren) will be asked to complete an Information Card immediately at the site.

If your child is currently registered in Discovery Link, you will need to only fill out a dismissal day registration form for the day(s) you need. If your child is not currently registered for Discovery Link before and/or after school care, please fill out a full registration packet. You will also be required to provide a copy of your child’s Immunization Record as well as a Health Appraisal signed by a physician if it is not already on file.
