Frequently Asked Questions About Summer Camp

What should my child wear to camp?

Your child should wear weather-appropriate clothing for indoor and outdoor activities. Rainy day gear, rain boots, or other closed-toed shoes and layers are always best! Make sure your child wears clothes that they can play in, and please do not wear anything that cannot get dirty.

What should my child bring to camp?

Your child should have a backpack with a reusable water bottle, an extra set of clothes, extra socks in case the ones they are wearing get wet. Sunscreen, and insect repellent are advised when applicable.

We ask that you check your child’s backpack each day before leaving for camp to ensure that only appropriate camp items are included. No electronic games, mp3 players, CD players, cell phones, trading cards, valuables, or pets are allowed in camp. 

Please label everything that comes to camp with the camper’s name!

Are snacks provided?

A snack is provided every day in camp and non-school day programs. Students are welcome to bring their own nut-free snacks from home if they prefer.

How do you keep kids safe on hot summer days or cold winter days?

Safety has always been our top priority. Our staff is properly trained on camp safety, and we take every precaution to keep your children comfortable throughout the year. Our schedule allows for a mix of indoor and outdoor play and will be adjusted to keep all campers safe throughout the changes in weather such as colder or hotter temperature changes, windy days, the presence of snow or rain, etc.

How will drop-off and pick-up work?

Stay tuned! Child drop-off and pick-up procedures will be released prior to your child’s first day of camp in accordance with your district’s request and your state’s public health requirements at that time.
