Frequently Asked Questions about our Camp

What are the camp hours? Camp activity hours are 8:30am-4:30pm but we are open from 7am-6pm should you need before or after care at no additional fee!

What should I do if my child is sick? Children who are exhibiting signs of illness (fever, diarrhea, vomiting, etc.) should be kept at home.  If the child becomes ill while in our care he/she will be brought into office and parent will be notified to pick the child up immediately. Campers must be fever free for 24 hrs to attend camp. Please call to make us aware your child will not be attending due to an illness.

What happens in the event of an medical emergency? When a situation arises where medical care beyond first aid is required, all expenses will be the parent’s sole responsibility.  All participants are required to have their own health insurance.

Will you be going outside during the day? Yes, we will have outside activity time and request that sunscreen is applied to campers each morning. We will reapply in the afternoon should they be participating in water activities. Please provide your child with labeled spray sunscreen if you want this applied before swim time or outdoor fun time.

What are your drop off and pick up procedures? We will have a car line daily from 8:15am-9:00am for morning drop off and 4:00pm-4:45pm for afternoon pick up. Each family will be given a car line card to be displayed on your windshield to make the pick up process seamless. We will give each family two cards in case there are multiple cars picking up. Should someone be picking up that does not have a card the car line counselor will check the campers file for permission and check ID. If your child is hesitant about entering the arena please park your car and walk them in, do not park in the car line!

Do I need to pack meals for my camper? We will provide a morning & afternoon snack to all campers as well as a lunch. If you have a picky eater feel free to pack them their own snacks and lunch but be aware we are a totally NUT FREE camp.

How do you handle discipline? We use a 3 strikes and you’re out policy for minor infractions (1st time out, 2nd sent to office, 3rd sent home for the day). If your camper puts their hands on another camper they will immediately be sent home we have a zero tolerance policy for physical contact.

What if my camper needs to take daily medication?  The office staff will dispense medication to your camper with your written consent. The staff will only dispense medications that are needed for appropriate behavior modification or for potential’ allergic reactions.

What should my camper wear to camp and have in their bag? Campers should dress for an active day. They should also pack with them a bathing suit, water shoes, sunscreen and a towel. We also ask that you pack an extra change of clothes. All items should have your child’s name on them.

Can my camper bring their cell phone or tablet? NO! If it is necessary for them to bring these items they must be left in the front office. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Why are you a nut free camp? In order to respect the many children that have peanut allergies, we have found it important to operate as a peanut free camp. We request that parents refrain from sending their child with any peanut products including sandwiches, crackers, candy, or anything else.

Are children required to be potty trained? Yes. We require that all children be potty trained in order to attend camp.
