Each camper should bring the following:
Campers will be organized into stable groups of 14 that they will remain in for the entire week. Groups are created by age: 4/5/6, 7/8/9, 10/11/12/13. Groups may be changed based on enrollment. For example, if there is a high number of 7-year olds, they may break off into their own group. If you have campers within these age categories that wish to be in the same group, please indicate on your application and be sure you register together. If you child is on the cusp of an age range, the Director and staff will help determine the most beneficial group for your child.
If they are in the same age group as indicated above then, yes. That does not mean they will always be on the same team. Staff members are instructed to not stack teams in an effort to create equitable play.
No. We pride ourselves on not being a single sport camp. We believe in providing kids with a variety of activities. Campers will stay and rotate with their group every 30 minutes according to a schedule, which changes daily. If a game/activity is popular it will fall into the schedule often. If your child is not particularly fond of an activity it is very likely the next one will be one of their favorites.
Yes, they are free to those staying a full day or attending after summer school. If you child is not enrolled for a full day and would like to stay on a camp lunch day then you can pay $20 to stay for the afternoon. Camp lunches are offered once a week and the menu will be posted on the board at check-in.
All food/drink provided by the camp is peanut free. We speak with the families who have peanut issues about the severity and then create a plan (i.e. peanut free table, hand washing, peanut free camp, etc.).
We take both the physical and mental health of your child seriously. The following protocols are in place to ensure the health of your children.
We find many ways to beat the heat. We provide cool water to drink, spray bottles, water play activities, cold watermelon breaks, and rotate groups from outside play to inside air conditioned game rooms. Most of the summer is fairly mild but we are always prepared for those hot, hot days!
Yes they will and you're welcome!
Due to the requirement to maintain stable grouping, you can add weeks, not days.
We will do our best to work with very minor changes to your schedule once camp begins. Please understand camp this year has a maximum capacity and once groups and weeks are filled we may not be able to make adjustments.
Unfortunately not this year. It is not possible to maintain stable groups during early drop off or aftercare hours.
No they can't. However, unused days can be transferred to another family member or another attending camper you may know.
