    Right at School, Wiseburn USD's extended care provider, is providing a special after-care package held at Aviation Elementary for $169 per week for 4th-8th graders enrolled in the Summer Athletics Camp, covering supervision from 12pm to 6pm.

Enrollment for Right at School can happen through Right at School directly using this link: https://www.rightatschool.com/school/?school=wiseburn-district-summer-camp&district=ca-wiseburn&tab=summer-camp
  • Can I attend these camps even if I don't go to a Wiseburn or Da Vinci school?
    Yes, absolutely. Our camps are open to all. However, if you're a high school student who does not attend a Da Vinci high school, you may want to look into the CIF rules to ensure that you can attend a Da Vinci High School Athletics Camp and not violate CIF rules.
  • I'm having enrollment issues. Who do I contact?
    We use a third-party vendor called 6crickets for the camp registration. If you are having trouble enrolling on their site, please email 6crickets directly at support@6crickets.com; that will be the fastest way to receive support. You can also send a request using the Contact us form located at summerinwiseburn.org/contact. Turnaround time for a response is usually 1-3 business days.
  • Can my child attend camp even if they don’t have any sports experience?
    Yes! Students of every level -- those with athletic experience and those just starting out -- are welcome. Our coaches may find the need to group students based on age and experience level. All of our coaches are equipped to make those determinations once they understand the composition of students’ skill sets.
  • Do we need to attend every day of camp or can my child miss some days?
    We recognize that many families have other summer plans that may conflict from time to time with camp. Your child may attend or not attend based on what works best for your family.
  • What kind of supervision will there be at camp?
    For the 4th-8th grade athletics camp on Wiseburn Middle School's campus, we will have a minimum of the following: - 2 approved adult coaches and 3 high school student-athletes for every sport (a minimum of 8 adult coaches and 12 student athletes) - 3 security staff on site at all times - 1 Certified Nurse's Assistant (CNA) - 1 Adult, screened Program Manager overseeing the camp operations, personnel, and protocols All staff are either existing employees of Wiseburn USD, employees/coaches of Da Vinci, or have become employed by the Da Vinci Schools Fund in order to be a part of the summer camp program. All employees must go through and pass the required federal/state background checks. Additionally, there will be a robust check-in and check-out process to ensure the safety and security of campers.
  • What is the cancellation policy?
    The Da Vinci Schools Fund will give a full refund of tuition and fees if a Wiseburn-Da Vinci Summer Athletics Camp is cancelled due to no fault of the family/camper (e.g. if the youth program is cancelled in its totality, or the high school baseball camp is cancelled in its entirety). If a family requests to withdraw or cancel its camper's participation, on or before May 1, 2024, a full refund will be granted. After May 1, 2024, partial refunds (60%) are granted if the withdrawal from the parent is received by June 1. No refunds will be made after June 1, 2024.
  • My child plays club sports. Will they be challenged in this camp?
    The degree of challenge your child may experience could depend on several factors, such as where your child's starting at, the overall composition of the camp, what the coaches are working with campers on in any given day, etc. Will this be like private lessons or club training? No. There will be a max of 100 students in each sport at any given time and students will be rotating through the different sports. A focus will be on teaching techniques, developing skills, having fun, and creating mindful opportunities for kids to bond with each other, learn/learn more about the sport, and grow. The coaches are excited about the opportunity to spend time with these campers and to engage with them in the way that best serves all the campers.
  • Is there a max capacity or cut-off for camp?
    Yes, the max capacity for the 4th-8th grade Summer Athletics Camp is 400 students. Spots are purchased on a first come, first served basis. 400 spots may sound like a lot, but when we surveyed families back in December 2023, 513 families representing almost 700 kids showed interest in attending our 6-week athletics camps. What does this mean? If you don't want to miss the chance, don't delay in signing up. Once we hit max capacity, registration will close.
  • I'm having enrollment issues. Who do I contact?
    We use a third-party vendor called 6crickets for the camp registration. If you are having trouble enrolling on their site, please email 6crickets directly at support@6crickets.com; that will be the fastest way to receive support. You can also send a request using the Contact us form located at summerinwiseburn.org/contact. Turnaround time for a response is usually 1-3 business days.
  • My child plays club sports. Will they be challenged in this camp?
    The degree of challenge your child may experience could depend on several factors, such as where your child's starting at, the overall composition of the camp, your child's mindset, what the coaches are working with campers on in any given day, etc. There will be a max of 30 students in each sport per coach (30:1 ratio). Depending on the sport, there may be assistant coaches and other support staff assisting with the training and development. Coaches will likely separate students into groups, depending on skill level, to train and develop students accordingly. For the high school program, there's an optional 2-hour strength and conditioning component that you can choose to sign your child up for. Generally speaking, strength training and conditioning will improve any athletes game. The add-on strength and conditioning program costs $100 for the full six weeks, bringing the total cost to $350 for the high school program ($250 to train/develop in their sport; $100 for strength and conditioning). You will see these options listed on the "Our Camps" page of the website.
  • Is there a max capacity for the high school camps?
    Yes, the max capacity for the High School Summer Athletics Camp is 30 students per discipline/sport (e.g. 30 students in girls basketball, 30 students in boys soccer, etc). We have a waitlist option for an additional 30 students in each discipline/sport, but before we can bring the waitlisted students into camp, we need to ensure three things: 1) we have enough students to fill the timeslot 2) we have the coaching staff to run it and 3) we have the facilities available. Spots are purchased on a first come, first served basis. When we surveyed families back in December 2023, 513 families representing almost 700 students showed interest in attending our 6-week athletics camps; 240 of those kids were incoming 9th-12th grade students. What does this mean? If you don't want to miss the chance, don't delay in signing up.
  • Do we need to attend every day of camp or can my child miss some days?
    We recognize that many families have other summer plans that may conflict from time to time with camp. Your child may attend or not attend based on what works best for your family.
  • Are meals and snacks included?
    No, we will not be supply meals or snacks. We recommend that all students bring a snack (or small meal) as well as plenty of water. High school athletes will be training at a relatively high level and for 4 hours straight if they sign up for the strength and conditioning component, in addition to their sport training.
  • Are these camps only open to Wiseburn and Da Vinci students and families?
    No, our camps are open to the general public. Wiseburn and Da Vinci students and families have an early registration period from March 1 through March 15. After that, the programs will also be marketed to students and families outside of our schools.
