Emergency medications (i.e. Epi-Pens and Inhalers) will be distributed to your child’s counselor and stored in their backpack for ready use. All other medication will be administered by the Camp Health Coordinator and will be stored and locked in the camp office.

We ask that your child brings a swimsuit, towel and a change of clothes every day. We are either swimming, slip and sliding, or getting messy!

7. What will my child do each week?

During the summer camp session, we do two assemblies to keep the kids excited and informed on what is going with camp. The first one is on Monday morning and the second assembly is Wednesday afternoon. The rest of the week we do activities like Softball, swimming, basketball, Soccer, Tennis, choice activities, big games, movies.

8. Do you provide sunscreen for my child?

No, we recommend that parents sunscreen your children prior to coming to camp as well for added protection. Counselors will help reapply in the afternoon if we are outside for an extended period of time.

9. Are snacks provided?

Yes, we have a variety of snacks that we provide mid afternoon and during before care at 7:45 am and in after care at 5:15 pm daily.

10. What if my child can’t swim?

Every camper is tested by our Kids First swim staff. Your child MUST pass the swim test in order to swim in the deep end. We use red and green colored wristbands to keep track of who is allowed to swim in what areas. We also have 2 lifeguards present during every swim day (1 at the shallow end and 1 at the deep end of the pool). In addition to the lifeguards, two of our camp staff are also in the pool with the children and 1-2 counselors supervise from the pool deck.
