Clark County to Extend Funding for School Daze Day Camp Program

Clark County will continue to offer the School Daze program at no charge until March 30, 2021 for those who qualify for the Clark County School District (CCSD) free and reduced lunch program.  As a result of COVID-19 and the continued closure of public school facilities, School Daze is a program where school age children ages 5 to 14 years of age can participate in distance learning in a supervised and socially distanced environment. Any student who qualifies for free or reduced lunch through CCSD can register into the program at no charge.

To qualify, parents or guardians must come in person to the School Daze location they will be attending with the following:

  • A letter from the  school district confirming that their child(ren) qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch.
  • Completed Parks and Recreation School Daze Registration Form.

After initial registration with qualifying paperwork is complete, future registration can be done online on the County Parks & Recreation website.  Pre-qualified parents who need copies of their letters may obtain them by contacting CCSD food service at: 1-800-819-7556 or by email at: myschoolmeals@nv.ccsd.net.  To apply for free or reduced lunch, please complete an online application at: https://www.ccsd.net/departments/food-service/free-reduced-online-application.  Once approved, CCSD will provide a letter confirming eligibility.

Parents who do not qualify for free or reduced lunch through CCSD can still register for the program at a rate of $20 per day.  Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and parents can enroll their child in the program beginning at 12:01 a.m. on the Wednesday before the upcoming week. 

School Daze is designed for children ages 5 to 14 years of age and will run Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Socially distanced activities will include educational time, games, arts n’ crafts, sports and themed activities. Parents and participants will be required to go through a daily intake process that includes temperature checks and completing a Daily Wellness Acknowledgement Form. Staff working in the program will be required to wear masks and parents are asked to provide a personal, reusable mask for their child. Participants are required to bring their own lunch and snack that doesn’t require heating or cooling.  All surfaces and equipment will be cleaned with disinfectant regularly.
