Why are you a peanut 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.

What should my child take with him/her?

Each child should have comfortable clothing, sneakers, and flip-flops or swim shoes. They should also have a bathing suit and towel. We recommend sending your child with a labeled bottle of sunscreen that can be applied before outdoor activities as well. All items should have your child’s name on them.

What about electronics?

Summer camp is all about fun, but we do not allow electronic devices such as Gameboys, iPods, iPads, or cell phones. A cell phone may be left at the front office if necessary.

Are children required to be potty trained?

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

Do you serve lunch and snacks at camp?

Yes we do! In addition to lunch, we also provide all campers with a morning and afternoon snack. We make it easy on the parents!!! Please make us aware of any food allergies your child has.

What if my child is sick?

If your child is ill, please do not send him or her to camp. Please call and let us know that your child will not be attending camp that day. If your child becomes ill at camp, we will bring him or her to the office and a parent or guardian will be called to pick the child up as soon as possible.

What are the pickup and drop-off procedures?

There will be a car drop off line in the morning.  One of our camp counselors will get your child out of the car so you don’t even have to get out.  In the afternoon, you must come in and sign your child out at the front table.  This is a good time to ask questions if you have any.  If you can not pick up your child, please make sure whoever is picking your child up is on the list ahead of time and has proper ID.  This can be arranged with Patty in the front office.
