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! Log online to pay your camp balance or stop by at 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 unpaid balances beginning the Tuesday before camp due to 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 in our roster if the balance isn’t paid.

DROP-OFF/ SIGN-OUT PROCEDURES To ensure an efficient drop-off process, please make sure you follow all posted drop-off instructions. 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. You will be charged a $1 per minute fee for every minute your camper has not been picked up at the end of the camp day.
