- Gym shoes/sneakers (no open toe shoes, flip-flops, etc..)

What if my camper has allergies, medications, or special needs?
Please enter all pertinent information when registering on CampDoc. Epi-pens and asthma inhalers will remain with the camper in their backpack and tagged. Any other medication must be given to the Camp Director upon arrival for safekeeping. If your child needs special accommodations or there is any additional information you feel we should know about your child, please send the Assistant Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email the week prior to camp with details or to set up a phone call. We greatly appreciate any information you can share with us, and this gives us time to prepare and ensure the best camp experience possible.
All of our camp counselors are American Red Cross certified in Adult & Pediatric CPR/AED, First Aid, Bloodborne Pathogens, and Asthma/Epi-Pen Administration.
How do you group campers and what are your camper to counselor ratios?
Campers are placed in groups by age and/or ability. If the camper would like to be grouped with a friend, please enter that information on CampDoc during registration.
Our counselor to camper ratio is no more than 1:8.
Where do I drop-off and pick-up my child?
Daily drop-off and pick-up is at Elbel Field. Please follow the drop-off and pick-up instructions on this map. If you would like to get out of your car and walk your child in, please park in spaces closest to the building so we can keep traffic flowing for those that don’t wish to get out of their car.
If you are unsure where to drop-off or pick-up your camper, look for our KidSport flags!
What if I need to change my registration? What is your cancellation and refund policy?
Registration change requests should be sent to Beth Lee (email@example.com). Please double-check your schedule before submitting your registration, as a $15 processing fee will be assessed for any requested registration changes.
