Giant Steps Day Camp

Updated: December 12, 2022

Student Pick-up and Drop-off

You can drop off your Giant Steps Day Camper starting at 8:30 a.m. SJW staff will be on hand at the parking lot loop nearest Braun Music Center to check in and supervise students as they arrive. Giant Steps Day Camp begins promptly each day with an all-camp meeting at 9:00 a.m. in Campbell Recital Hall. 

If your child will arrive later than 9:00 a.m. please call the SJW office  to let us know their anticipated time of arrival.

You can pick up your child once Giant Steps Day Camp classes end at 3:00 p.m. each day. Parents who are unable to pick up their students at 3:00 may opt for the late pick-up plan. SJW staff will supervise students from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. each day for a fee of $150 for the entire week. Students have a choice of activities during this time. If you choose the late pick-up option, you may pick up your child by coming into the Braun Music Center or by calling the SJW staff on-duty phone number, which will be distributed to parents prior to the start of Giant Steps Day Camp.

Giant Steps Day Camp lunch options

You may choose the lunch plan which provides a box lunch prepared each day by the Stanford Coffee House, or you may opt to have your child bring a sack lunch from home. Box lunches from the Stanford Coffee House include a sandwich, fruit, chips, and a cookie.

SJW provides free healthful snacks to all Giant Steps Day Camp students during breaks.

Giant Steps Day Camp Student Showcase

Giant Steps Day Camp culminates in the Showcase on Friday afternoon, July 14, 2023. Giant Steps Day Campers will celebrate everything they’ve learned during the week by putting on a concert for friends, family, and other campers. The concert is in Dineklspiel Auditorium in Braun Music Center from 3:30 p.m to 5:30 p.m.

Friends and family members are invited to attend this free concert. Video and audio recording of the concert is permitted, but we ask that anyone who records the concert be considerate and respect others’ ability to see and hear the show without disruption. We also ask that you use no extra lighting, and keep flash photography to a minimum.
