A Pre-K to Grade 12 Independent Quaker Day School Serving the Greater Durham-Chapel Hill Area

Camp CFS

Camp CFS is a staff workday care option for Early, Lower, and Middle School students.

Your children are invited to spend the day (or half-day) with CFS staff members, including Extended Day (AfterHours) Coordinator Cyrise Davis, and Upper School TA's in the Gym and, weather permitting, the athletic fields and other outdoor spaces.

Students can pursue individual activities (reading, for example) and enjoy facilitated group activities. We have an arts and crafts station; rated-G films; LEGO; board games; and group games (inside and, weather permitting, outside).

We ask that families pack a lunch for each child. We’ll provide morning and afternoon snacks on full days, afternoon snacks on half-days. Snacks include animal crackers, apples, carrots, clementines, cheese, Goldfish, grapes and the like, but no nut products.

We welcome non-CFS students to join us for any Camp CFS!
