The pools close this weekend, so there will not be swimming next week. Today is the last day as part of camp!

Medication Pick-Up

If your child has medications at camp, please don't forget to pick them up on their last day!

If your child is sick, please let us know!

Camp Medical Policy


Children must be healthy enough to participate in the camp’s daily routine. If your child is not feeling well, please keep them home until they are better and no longer present the danger of passing on their illness. If we notice your child arrives sick, we will send them home. Campers, parents, and staff should monitor their health for two weeks before the start of camp, and daily during camp, for symptoms associated with COVID-19. If your child is displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 or you think they may have been exposed, please notify us immediately at 768-3077. Please contact us at 768-3077 by 9:30am to let us know if your child will be absent for any reason.


If your child becomes ill at camp, we will notify you as soon as possible. If we are unable to reach you, other guardians and adults authorized to pick up your child as indicated in your child’s registration packet will be contacted in the order listed. Your child must be picked up within 45 minutes of notification. Due to the added concerns this year, our well child policy will be more strictly enforced.


Please notify the camp director if your child or another member of your immediate household develops a communicable condition, such as pink eye, chicken pox, or lice.


Here are some examples of when to keep your child home from camp:

1. If a child has diarrhea, runny nose (colored discharge), or vomiting.

2. If a child’s temperature is over 101 degrees.

3. In the event that your child contracts a case of head lice. It is our policy that a child must be treated for lice before returning to camp.
