Parent Information
Campers are to bring a lunch, snack and water bottle  with them every day.  Sunscreen and bug spray is also  recommended as campers will be outside for a large portion of each day. Please send your child to camp in clothes that you do not mind getting stained or dirty as we often use paint, food coloring, or are outside most days each week.

Campers and parents will be asked to sign/turn in a behavioral policy. This will be attached to your registration form. Parents/guardians must accompany children to check in/out with an educator. Everyone will be required to show their I.D. when picking up their child from camp (no exceptions). Only the people listed on your authorized list will be allowed to pick up your child.

Due to the high volume of registration  forms that we receive,  your child will not be added to the camp roster until  full or partial payments for camps have been received.
