Arriving & Departing From Camp

 
Parents and campers can stay in their vehicles during drop off and pick up as we provide drive-thru registration. We are unable to accommodate early registration, drop off, or pick up and ask that you arrive during your designated time. We have a long drive way and you are welcome to wait in the designated area if you arrive early. Early pick-ups must be pre-arranged with our office based on the camp daily schedule.

 

On the first day of a new session, registration may take up to 25 minutes.

**LIT Specific Information**

The in-course portion of the LIT program runs from July 3rd – July 15th and the LIT placement week runs from July 17th-22nd. If the LIT is unable to complete their placement week from July 17th-22nd, arrangements can be made for a different week.

LITs should stay at camp during the weekend of July 8th -10th. All LIT’s should be picked up on Friday, July 15th, even if they will be starting their placement week on the 17th. Additional information will be sent out later with details about the placement week arrival/departure times.

Medical Care & Policies

 

Please notify our office if there are any updates to your child’s medical, allergy, or dietary information prior to camp.

 

All medications (including puffers, epi-pens, vitamins, etc.) must be handed into the Camp Nurse during registration along with appropriate medication forms (see below).

 

Overnight Campers will have a lice check during sign-in. Campers with lice or nits will need to return home to remove all lice and nits before being allowed to return to camp. While we understand that not all nits are “live” there is no way for us to determine if a nit is live or not, and as such no nits may be present. To make the process run more smoothly, we recommend that campers come with their hair down or in a simple ponytail.

 

Day Campers will not have a lice check, but will wear a polypropylene bouffant hairnet during each helmeted activity to reduce potential transmission.

Meals, Snacks, and Canteen

 
Day Campers are asked to bring a daily nut-free lunch and morning snack. We will be serving a hot-dog lunch on the last day of each session for those that have purchased this option.

 

Explore Day Campers who have purchased a Prepaid Canteen Package will get to choose 2 items from the canteen each afternoon (eg. Popsicle treat, chips, granola bar, juice, chocolate bar, candy, etc.). Campers will get to select their items independently from a “grab and go” bin. No change will be given at the end of the week.

 

Extreme Day Campers who have paid a tuck deposit in advance can make snack purchases from our camp store each afternoon. Any unspent money over $2 will be returned on the last day. Contact our office or log in to add canteen options. We recommend only adding money for 1 week at a time if your child is attending multiple camp sessions. Suggested amount is $3 – $5/ day for Extreme Day Campers.

 

If your family has opted out of canteen, please send them with an additional nut-free afternoon snack.

All meals, an afternoon snack, and a bedtime snack are included in your overnight camp fees.

 

The canteen is open daily for Overnight Campers to purchase snacks. Tuck deposits are taken in advance and be placed in an account that your child can use throughout the week. Any unspent money above $2 will be returned on the last day.

 

Contact our office or log in to add a Tuck Deposit. We recommend only adding money for 1 week at a time if your child is attending multiple camp sessions. Suggested amount is $3 – $5/ day.

Communication During Overnight Camp

 

Mail: Many families like to pre-write letters or put together parcels for their child while they are camp. We have a daily mail delivery service at camp, so letters and parcels can be dropped off during sign-in (please be sure any food items in parcels are nut-free).

 

E-mail: Families can also pay for email-credits to send one-way emails to their kid while they are at camp.

 

Photos: We know you will miss your child while they are at camp, so we have a photo program for our overnight camps to give you a bit of a glimpse into what is going on at camp. A password to access the photos will be provided to you on the first day of camp. You should see your child in 2-3 photos during the week.

 

Cell Phones: Campers aren’t permitted to keep cell phones or other electronic devices with them while at camp. Please contact our office if you need a message passed along to your child.

 

We do not recommend bringing anything valuable to camp as occasionally things do get lost, stolen, or broken. Teen Week, Crew Camp, and LIT campers will be given the option to hand in devices at registration to be stored during the week. These campers will be given 3 allotted times throughout the week to sign out their devices. Devices not checked in will be held in the office for the duration of the camper’s session. We are not responsible for loss or damage.
