How do I register for Summer at BL Camps?


When the 2021 Camp Registration is available, you can click on our REGISTER button to view all camp offerings and to register for in-person camps!




What grade level should I select?


Grades listed indicate the student's grade as of Fall 2021. We offer camps for rising kindergarten through eighth graders.




How do I make changes to my reservations?


Camps can be added at any time via your Summer at BL online account. If you need to make a change to an existing reservation, please email us at summercamp@bishoplynch.org or call 214.324.3607 ext. 4175 for assistance.




What is your refund policy?


We encourage you to move your child to another session if possible so your child can experience Summer Camp at Bishop Lynch. However, we understand that family situations can come up and you will need to cancel your child’s registration. Email us at summercamp@bishoplynch.org with your cancellation requests. If you cancel with more than 7 days before the session start date, then you will receive all money paid for that specific camp EXCEPT $20.00 cancellation fee. Requests received less than 7 days before the camp start date will not be refunded, except in cases of emergency. If Summer at BL cancels a program, you will be refunded 100%.




Do you pro-rate camps?


Pro-ration is not available. When we book camps, we rely on fees to pay instructors and assistants and cover all materials, regardless if your camper joins us for two days or all five. We appreciate your understanding!




Where are you located?


All Bishop Lynch camps are located on our campus at 9750 Ferguson Road, Dallas, TX 75228.




Do you offer extended care?


Currently, we do not offer morning or after camp care. Our doors open at 8:30am for check-in and pick-up ends at 3:30pm. Our camps are offered Monday - Thursday. Campus is closed on Fridays for school maintenance.




Do you have a nurse on-site?


We have a nurse on staff during the summer. If your child has specific health concerns, please contact Kim Jamieson, Summer at BL Director, at 214.324.3607 ext. 4175 for further direction.




Where do I check-in and check-out my camper?


Check-in and Check-out is at the Competition Gym Entrance. Enter our campus at the Stadium Lot on Ferguson Road. Please park and walk your child in each morning. This is also where you will check your camper out each day. We require you to sign-in and sign-out. If you have someone else picking your child up in the afternoon, please inform Kim Jamieson (Summer at BL Director) by emailing summercamp@bishoplynch.org.




Is lunch included in the cost of camps?


Yes! Lunch is provided by Sage Dining and is included in the cost of camps. A rotating weekly menu will be sent out prior to the start of camp.




Should I pack a snack for my child?


Yes, we do not serve snacks at our camps and we suggest packing something small for your camper to eat during break time. For athletic camps, we suggest lots of water and/or gatorade too! Make sure you label your child’s name on anything you send with them.




If I register my child for just a morning or afternoon camp, can they stay for lunch?


Yes! All campers, regardless of which session they signed up for, are allowed to eat lunch at 11:30am. Morning only camp pick-up begins at 12pm in order for our staff to clear out the cafeteria and get the campers ready to go home! Afternoon campers will stay in the cafeteria until their session begins at 12:30pm.




If my child is registered for both morning and afternoon sessions, where do they go in between sessions from 11:30am-12:30pm?


All campers are escorted and monitored by Summer Camp Staff in our cafeteria where they will eat lunch at 11:30am. Once campers are finished with their lunch, they will be escorted to the gym to play organized games and hangout until the afternoon session begins at 12:30pm. During this entire time, all campers will be supervised by Summer Camp Staff members.




What is the capacity for each camp (following Covid protocol) and your mask policy?


***NEW AS OF 6/16/21 - Our indoor masking requirement is being re-evaluated by Bishop Lynch school administrators due to the new information from Dallas County. We will update this page as soon as we have new information about indoor mask requirements.*** Indoor arts and academics camps are limited to 20-25 campers depending on which classroom they are assigned to. All campers will be required to WEAR A MASK INDOORS THROUGH JULY 1st and bring their own refillable water bottles. Water fountains are turned off, but we have refillable water stations around campus. Indoor sports camps will be limited to about 60 campers to stay socially distanced and equipment will be sanitzed daily after each camp. Campers will be required to wear a mask for indoor sports camps through July 1st. The masking requirement for indoor activities at Bishop Lynch is in effect through Thursday, July 1; this date coincides with the last day of the four-week summer school term at Bishop Lynch. Incoming and current students are currently attending required classes on campus, and due to the age of the students (14-16 years old) and the recent approval for the 12-15-year age group to receive the vaccine, most have not had the opportunity to complete the two-vaccine series either prior to, or during the summer term. This timeline also allows our current students who are working the Summer at BL camps the opportunity to be vaccinated before masking is no longer required indoors on our campus. Outdoor sports camps will not have a limit due to our facility size and multiple sports fields. We have scheduled our camps so that each sport can easily spread out and socially distance. Please remember to bring a refillable waterbottle with your child's name written on it. OUTDOOR CAMPS DO NOT REQUIRE MASKS.




How will lunch service work with Covid protocol?


Our hot lunches are provided by Sage Dining and will be pre-packaged, grab and go style. Campers will then go to their assigned lunch tables in the cafeteria and atrium where we have enough seating to spread out and campers will be 4 to a table (2 on each side). There is a clear divider on each table to allow for campers to remove their mask only while seated and eating their lunches. Once they finish their lunch, they will be given hand sanitizer and then move into the gym to play games and wait to be picked-up from morning camps or stay for their afternoon session camps.
