HERE’S WHAT PARENTS HAVE TO SAY....

“My son attended four camps this year and he was excited to get up and go every time. Thanks for having enthusiastic counselors and phenomenal leaders. Keep up the great work.”

“The counselor made my daughter feel very comfortable on her first day, her first time at a day camp. The counselors seemed well trained, coordinated and focused on keeping the kid’s engaged to have a positive experience. We will be back. She told me she is excited for her sister to be with her next year. Thanks!”

IMPORTANT CAMP INFORMATION PAYMENT METHOD Paying for camp is easy! Login online to pay your camp balance or stop by our front desk. Two payment options are available for your convenience: 1. Pay now: Pay your full balance including a $25 nonrefundable deposit per camp week. 2. Pay later: Pay an upfront $25 nonrefundable deposit per camp week. The remainder of the balance will be due seven days before the first day of camp. Please note you will not be mailed an invoice. A balance due email will be sent to the email address you provide in your registration application. It saves to pay early! A $25 express enrollment fee will be applied to new registrations and unpaid balances beginning the Tuesday before a camp start date. The express fee covers the additional costs associated with last-minute roster changes and vendor fees. Full camp balances are due one week prior to the start of each camp and your camper may lose their place on our roster if the balance isn’t paid.

A signature from a parent, guardian or authorized adult is required in our daily sign-in sheet for your child to participate in camp activities. For late arrivals, it will be the responsibility of the parent or guardian to sign-in and ensure your child gets to their designated camp area. Safety of our campers is our number one priority. Only parents and/or guardians are authorized to sign a child out of our camp programs. If you need to add another person to your authorized pick-up list, please make sure this is documented with our camp staff. All adults picking up a camper are required to present a photo ID.
