**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
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.
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.
