- MY CHILD IS AT CAMP
Choosing a summer camp for your child is a big decision. We're glad you chose to visit us and learn more. Feel free to browse the website or - of course - give us a call. Below we've gathered the answers to the questions parents ask about most.
What does a typical day look like? Daily schedule. (Yep, it's full of fun and we tire them out!)
What do you mean by "skills?" Click here for a full list of activities by age!
How can I get in touch with my child while he/she is at camp? Right here! (And of course in an emergency, just call.) You can also send a letter in advance or fax while he or she is here.
Do I have to pay it all at once? Or can I get on a payment plan? What if I need a little financial assistance? No problem. We can help. Call us for more information.
How can I prepare my child for camp? Try this.
Who will my overnight camper have in his/her cabin? We group campers by gender and age (within 1 year).
What if my child gets sick/hurt? We have a well-equipped Health Center with an onsite nurse, as well as counselors who are trained in emergency First Aid and CPR. (You can also check out page 6 of the Parent Handbook for further information.)
My child has food allergies/special dietary needs. No problem. Just let us know. Kitchen Cathy looks forward to speaking with you!
My child is shy or nervous in new situations. We understand and take this very seriously. We make every effort to ensure each child feels comfortable, welcome and included. We are very deliberate the first few days (and throughout camp) to foster a safe environment where friendships and confidence grow. In addition, we take a strong and proactive stance against bullying. Parents and children should discuss and complete a behavior agreement prior to attending camp.
What if my child doesn't swim? Or isn't the strongest swimmer? Each child is swim tested by our expert aquatics staff to determine their ability. Campers are then placed in activities appropriate to their swimming ability. Some activities (such as the trampoline) require a life-vest for ALL swimmers. We staff the pool and waterfront with trained lifeguards to ensure the highest level of water safety.
