2017 CAMP FAQs
Who supervises my child?Safety is our number one priority. Our camp staff is made up of dedicated and experienced adults who have received a minimum of 20 hours of training and are all CPR and first-aid certified. We have an extensive interview process including references, and background checks to ensure the best possible role models for your children.
What are the hours of camp?Our camp day runs from 9am-4pm Monday-Friday, but we also are here to accommodate your family’s schedule and offer free extended care before and after camp each day. Feel free to drop off your child anytime between 7am-9am and pick up from 3:45pm-6pm.
What do I need to send with my camper each day?We will supply the atmosphere for a great camp experience and ask only that you send your camper to camp each day with a lunch, at least 2 snacks, a water bottle and closed-toe shoes. We recommend applying sunscreen before you get to camp and our camp staff will supply sunscreen to campers regularly throughout the day.
During our afternoon extended care, we will provide a healthy snack for your kids after a long day of fun and camp!
