Can my child sign himself in and out?

Your camper may sign himself in and out each day as long as your camper is over 10 years old and you send a note prior to the first day of camp (either by mail or e- mail). Please notify us if your camper has permission to leave the premises after signing out. If not, we will make sure an adult from the pick-up list is present before signing out.

Where is the camp field trip this year?

The camp field trip is still to be determined. We select the field trip activities based upon the curriculum theme for the year.

Is food provided each day?

Lunch, as well as a morning and afternoon snack, is provided for all campers, except on field trip day. Each camper will need to provide their own sack lunch on their field trip day. Friday is Family Day and lunch will be provided for the families.

What should my child bring to camp each day?

Comfortable clothing in which they can participate in a wide variety of activities is preferred. The campers will be participating in hands-on experiments that may include household items such as: food coloring, markers, chalk, etc. Please make sure that what your child wears is okay to get dirty. Make sure that all your child’s belongings are marked with her name. Cell phones are not to be used during camp except in an emergency or to speak with parents/guardians. We would prefer children not bring any electronic devices but understand the security a cell phone may provide. If this is the case, please advise your child before attending camp of our cell phone policy.

Can parents/guardians observe their child during the camp sessions?

To keep disruptions to a minimum, we ask parents and guardians to wait until Family Day to observe and participate with their child/ren during the program. Parents, guardians, and community supporters are invited to attend Family Day.

Do you hire high-school-aged students?

High School students over 16 years of age can apply for a Lab Assistant position. Please contact your local camp director for more information.
