Welcome to Tea Time Etiquette Camp for Girls® (TTE).  Your daughter is setting the stage for girls who will follow, all deserving the finest that life has to offer.  We will help her discover who she is, help her realize her potential, that her opinion matters, and that she has a special place in your home and community.   Together, we will practice the Golden Rule.  It is a standard by which we can gauge our actions: treat other people the way you would like to be treated.  She will learn so much: proper eating manners, formal dining, and social behavior. If she comes each day with a loving heart and a good attitude to learn, we promise your daughter will enjoy every minute of each day of this summer camp.  It is our hope that she will make lifelong friends here.

Public Health Policy

TTE will follow all CDC, state, and local guidelines. To comply, all scheduled camp activities are subject to change, including cancellation. TTE ensures a safe and clean environment by monitoring the health of its campers and staff, and frequently sanitizing and disinfecting hard surfaces. Creating a safe and fun environment for our campers and staff is our #1 priority.

Camp Closing/Public Health Policies

TTE follows the camp closing policy of the Jefferson Parish School System as it relates to holidays and inclement weather. Additionally, TTE strictly follows the safety guidance of the State of La. for cancelling school and summer camp for any reason.

Infectious Diseases

Immunizations must be up-to-date prior to the first day of camp. To help prevent contamination, anyone suspected of having a contagious illness, evidenced by symptoms, cannot return to camp for at least 24 hours after becoming fever free, starting antibiotics, and showing clear evidence that the virus disease or infection is gone. Those testing positive for any virus are not allowed to attend camp until proof of testing negative is submitted. A doctor’s note may be required in order to return to camp. The child will be sent home if suspected of being contagious, has a fever, or other evidence of illness.

Financial Obligation

Registration fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable. Your child’s space is not secured until the registration fee and the registration form are submitted online.

Tuition payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. Log in to your account at jprd.com to pay tuition. No payments are accepted onsite. Full tuition is $600 per camper (plus a one-time $4 fee for insurance) for the entire six-week session. Tuition is due on Friday, May 31, 2024 and must be paid in full ($604) prior to camp opening day. To arrange installment payments, contact Raynell Butler, Jefferson Parish Parks & Recreation, at raynell.butler@jprd.com or call 504-349-5000.

Tuition is a flat fee and will not be prorated based on the number of days the camper is or is not in attendance. By registering your daughter, you agree to secure a space for the entire six-week session. This commitment stands whether your daughter attends full time, part time, or occasionally. If your daughter is absent for an entire week, tuition is still due for the missed week, and must be paid before she is allowed to return.
