Summer 5-8 Big Shots

Big Shots 
(for grades 5-8)  

Registration  Deadline was 5/22/20.


SUMMER 2020 Program Update: 

We have received official word that we are able to operate our summer childcare program and we couldn’t be more excited!  Our summer will look very different from previous summers and will have several health and safety components incorporated throughout our day.  We are busy reviewing the Minnesota Department of Health’s Guidance for Social Distancing in Youth and Student Programs and Minnesota Department of Education’s Summer Programming Guidance for Schools.  A few of the important changes include:     

  • Priority registration for Tier 1 and 2 employees.  We plan to take as many children as our staffing will allow.  However, we are required to give preference to Tier 1, followed by Tier 2, and then to all other families (for more information on Tiers visit
  • Consistent classroom, staff persons and groups of children in a 1:9 staff-to-child ratio throughout the summer
  • Social distancing in all program areas
  • Health screenings for staff and children upon arrival
  • Ensuring proper handwashing and health etiquette 
  •  Structured drop-off and pick-up times
  • Thorough cleaning and sanitization of all program areas
  • No field trips (this one is a bummer!)
  • Structured meal times/locations
  • And more…

The official deadline for registration is May 22, 2020.  More detailed information about Camp Horizons/Big Shots will be coming soon, including locations, procedures, daily schedules and more.  

Big Shots Details:

Each camp’s staff, activities and fun are hand-picked for that age group. No parent wants to make extra stops each day. So, both camps are at one convenient location — Hastings High School.

We offer 11 weeks of summer fun:
• June 10 through August 21
• Monday through Friday
• 6:30 am-6:00 pm

Pay a straight per-day fee, and pay only for the days you pick
The extras aren’t extra. Everything is included in our straight $39 per-day fee. That means everything. Includes transportation, themed days, daily snacks, on-site performers and a summer T-shirt.
• 2 snacks with beverage each day
• Special on-site “EdVentures” performances
• All program materials and supplies
• Camp Horizons/Big Shots will transport your child to/from all other activities within Hastings city limits on days your child is enrolled in camp.
