Frequently asked questions Who are our Camp Royal Staff?

Dedicated professionals with an interest and/or hands-on experience in fields directly related to youth. Our Camp Royal Staff is comprised of district staff, college students, and local community professionals, with a broad range of knowledge and appropriate experience working with youth.

Where and when do I drop-off and pick up?

Youth need to be signed in and out of Camp Royal every day by a parent/guardian between 8-9 am; and 4-5 pm in the Eisenhower Community Center Entrance Lobby area (Door B). Students attending morning-only camps must be picked up at 12 pm unless they are staying for lunch — then pick-up time is by 12:30 pm. Drop-off for students attending afternoon-only camps begins at 12:30 pm unless they are coming for lunch — then drop-off time is 12:00 pm.

What about lunch?

Lunch is free, and is from 12:00-12:30 pm for Camp Royal participants. Lunch supervision is part of your Camp Royal fee and is supervised by Camp Royal staff. Your student may bring a bag lunch if they wish, and eat during the scheduled Camp Royal lunch time.

How are kids supervised from 8-9 am, 4-5 pm, and during lunch?

Our Camp Royal staff will supervise drop-off, lunch, and pick-up time periods outside of the regular camp programming time. During this time, youth have the option to participate in gym games and other small group activities.

What is your ratio of staff to kids?

Camp Royal follows state guidelines for Out-Of-School Time ratios, which are 15 to 1. Some class offerings will be below this ratio.

Camp Royal youth will be very busy during programming time. Please leave electronic devices at home. Cell phones are welcome, but need to remain in the backpacks while participating in programming. Hopkins Community Education is not responsible for lost, stolen, or broken devices.

Who do I call if I need to talk to Camp Royal staff during programming time?

The Camp Royal cell phone number will be provided to Camp Royal parents when the program begins. This phone number will be attended during programming times.
