What is the FKBC Summer Academic Camp?
The FKBC Summer Academic Camp is an eight-week summer day camp program designed for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Our purpose with the Summer Academic Camp is to provide a fun and academic camp in a safe environment with qualified, loving teachers.
Students who continued to study over the summer have an academic advantage over their classmates. They can use their summer break to get caught up in their studies, continue to learn, or even get ahead!
But summer break is also about having fun! That is why we also have a Full-Day program in which students can enjoy extracurricular activities and field trips.
When and where is the FKBC Summer Academic Camp?
The dates for the 2019 Summer Academic Camp are June 17 - August 2, 2019.
The Intensive SAT Prep classes will run throughout the 7 weeks.
The camp is held at the First Korean Baptist Church of Raleigh (8905 Ray Rd, Raleigh, NC 27613)
How much does the camp cost?
Grades K-8 (Half-Day): $100/week
Grades K-8 (Full-Day): $160/week
Grades 9-12 (SAT): $300/week

What is the registration fee?
To secure your child's spot, a $20 non-refundable registration fee is due at the time of registration.
After submitting the online application form, please pay by sending a check payable to Open Gate Education as soon as possible.

You can also pay for the tuition in two installments.
First payment deadline is June 8th. Second payment deadline is July 6th.
A $25 late payment fee will apply to the balance if paid late.

Can I visit the facilities and meet the teachers before the camp start date?
Of course! There will be a Camp Orientation for parents in early June.
You will be able to tour the facilities and meet all of the camp teachers and staff.
During the orientation, we will hold an information session that will explain the camp curriculum in detail and have a Q&A session when we will answer any questions you may have.
You will also be able to fill out the Camp Enrollment Form and pay for the camp tuition in person. We can accept checks, credit cards (for a small fee), and cash.
What forms do I need to complete before the camp?
The first form is the Registration Form, which you can find online.
The second form is the Enrollment Form, which will be available at the Camp Orientation for parents.
If your child has any food allergies or other medical conditions, please explain in detail on the Enrollment Form, or on a separate piece of paper if you need more space.
While attending the Camp Orientation is highly recommended, if you are unable to attend, we can email you the orientation materials and Enrollment Form. You will be responsible for turning it in along with the camp tuition by June 9th.
What are the drop-off and pick-up times?
The drop-off time starts at 8:30AM.
Please make sure your child arrives by 8:50AM at the latest so classes can start promptly at 9:00AM.
The pick-up time for Half-Day students is between 12:00 - 12:30PM.
The pick-up time for Full-Day students is between 4:00 - 4:30PM.
Please pick up your child on time; otherwise, they will be sent to the main church building to wait for rides.
What is the daily schedule like?
Classes start at 9:00AM. Each class runs for 50 minutes with a 10-minute break in between classes.
Students who are registered for only the Half-Day program will be dismissed to go home at 12:00PM.
Students who are registered for the Full-Day will have a lunch break from 12:00 - 1:00PM. Students can play in the gym after they are finished with lunch.
The Music, Art, and Sports classes start at 1:00PM. Like the morning classes, each class runs for 50 minutes with a 10-minute break in between.
On Fridays, instead of the Music, Art, and Sports classes, students enjoy a variety of fun summer activities from 1:00 - 4:00PM. Students can have water balloon fights, do science experiments, play basketball, watch a movie, and more! Every other Friday, students go on field trips to places like the Marbles Kids Museum, NC Museum of Art, AMF Bowling, and Defy Gravity.
I want to go on family vacations and send my child to other sports camps. Can I get a refund for those weeks?
As long as you let us know prior to the camp start date, we will only charge you for the weeks that you will attend. However, if you give us less than a week's notice, we cannot refund your camp tuition. Please refer to the refund and cancellation policy above.
How can I know more details about the field trips?
We will send home a schedule of the field trips planned for the month along with permission slips that will be required to be signed and returned before going on any field trips.
