Q: What do I need to pack for my camper?
A: Here is a list of things to pack each day. Please use a permanent marker to label everything with your child’s first and last name.
- Backpack or zipper tote to hold all your gear.
- Lunch Box + Water
We are a NUT FREE camp, please pack lunches/snacks accordingly! We recommend an insulated lunch box, as lunches will not be refrigerated, and water bottle(s). A.M. camps should bring lunch, a snack, and water bottle. P.M. camps should bring a snack and water bottle.
Although usually under a tent, campers will be outside everyday, weather permitting. Please send them with sunscreen already applied and we’ll assist with reapplying as needed.
- Sneakers or Sport Sandals
For safety sake, no crocs or flip flops, please!
- Swim gear
Campers need a bathing suit, towel, goggles, and change of clothes every day. All campers must arrive in their bathing suits and bring clothes to change into after swim time.
Q: What are the ratios for counselors to campers?
A: Counselors : Campers
5 yrs & under = 1:6
6-8 yrs = 1:8
9-14 yrs = 1:10
Q: How are campers grouped?
A: The following camps are separated by age, which can vary depending on enrollment and a variety of other factors – Summer Fun, AM Specialty Camps (Acro/Hip Hop, Acro/Dance, Gym/Art, Warrior/Sports), Girls Gymnastics, Warrior, and Stars On Stage.
ALL other camps are not split, meaning the entire group stays together.
*This can change if we have an influx in enrollment/available staff.
Q: How does Arrival and Dismissal work?
A: Morning drop off is staggered (info to come) for 8:30am and 8:45am and ends at 9am. Morning pick up begins at 1:00pm and ends at approx. 1:15pm
Afternoon drop off begins at 12:40pm and ends at 12:50pm. Afternoon pick up begins at 4:30pm and ends at approx. 4:45pm.
AM Extended (7:30-9am) and PM Extended (4:30-6pm) Day parents should park and walk their child in/pick them up.
While we have a walk up line, we do prefer you use our car line. If in your car please stay in your car. If walking up please form a single file line in the marked area.
Q: How do you communicate with parents?
A: We will update our Parent Portal as much as possible with updates, photos, videos and daily activities. The best way to reach a Camp Director is via email.
Q: What is your hiring process?
A: Most of our staff are returning employees. All employees in the building are interviewed, screened, given a background check if they are over 18, and held to building and ACA (American Camp Association) standards.
Q: How often do campers swim?
A: All AM campers will have free swim on Mondays and swim lessons from Tuesday through Friday, pending appropriate staffing levels. PM campers will have daily free swim.
A: Yes. If your child passes the swim test for free swim in either AM or PM camp, they will receive a color-coded wristband each week. Although counselors and lifeguards cross-check the list of who has passed the swim test, please have your child keep the wristband on all week
