                     hope you find the information in this catalog helpful as you plan
                     your children’s summer activities.

                     Summer is a time to be creative, explore new worlds, sharpen skills,
                     and have fun! Lakehill Summer Camps are carefully planned to
                     promote excellence in education, athletics, and recreation while

Cancellation, Insurance, and Free Before-Camp and After-Camp Care


                       Cancellation and Withdrawal
                       We recognize that sometimes summer plans change unexpectedly.
                       However, because the school must purchase materials and incur
                       other expenses in preparation for these camps, any student who
                       withdraws from Lakehill Summer Camps after the registration
                       deadline may be subject to a 50% cancellation fee. Refunds (minus
                       the cancellation fee) will be available within 30 days of the date of
                       cancellation. In the event that a camp must be cancelled due to
                       insufficient enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances, the
                       complete registration fee will be promptly refunded. There will be
                       no prorated registration fees or refunds for class days missed.



                       Insurance
                       Summer Camp Accident Insurance is provided by the Independent
                       School Management/Insurance Trust and is included in the
                       registration fee for all Summer Camp students.

                       which could include board games, outdoor games, card games, and/

   friends, who called themselves The Inklings, wrote in their spare time and shared
   their ideas together. We will read and discuss stories by Tolkien, Lewis, and
   others, and will follow in their footsteps by writing and sharing stories of our
   own. Plot, setting, conflict, and characterization will be emphasized as students
   craft their own imaginative works.

No, not pulling-rabbits-out-of-hats-magic. Elves-and-dragons-and-goblins-magic!

Magic: The Gathering is the first and oldest collectible trading card game. At its
heart, Magic is like a game of chess crossed with a fantasy world of elves, goblins,
spells, and dragons: two rival players attempt to conquer the other's kingdom by
maneuvering troops and monsters, attacking the other's defenses, and
overwhelming his or her opponent. However, whereas chess has only six different
types of pieces, Magic has literally thousands of different cards, each with its own
strengths, weaknesses, and abilities, from which each player selects his or her
favorite 60 to build a deck. At the end of each Magic camp, students take home
their new cards to keep!

During the school year, Lakehill's Magic Club is open to students in fourth grade
and up.


Magic: The Gathering—Tournament Magic
This camp, for the collectible trading card game Magic: The Gathering is for kids
who know the basics, and are ready to take their skills to the next level. Since this

Students who attend this camp will be invited to an optional off-campus Friday
Night Magic tournament the night of July 1st to show off their new skills and
draft with other Magic: The Gathering players in the Dallas area.
