FAQ

What will my child be doing all day?

Our Camps will offer a number of different activities appropriate for the varied age groups. Campers will be organized into groups for the week according to age. Many of our activities will happen outdoors, but we also have 3 large well-vented facilities on premises at our disposal.

What should I pack for my child each day?

Your child will need to bring a lunch and two snacks each day. They will need a minimum of ONE water bottle although we highly recommend TWO. Please ensure they have sunscreen already applied before camp each day and an extra bottle with them to reapply after lunch. Please ensure proper footwear is worn each day. A SUN HAT is highly recommended. Once registered and closer to the day (the weekend before camp start), you will receive an email with more detailed instructions of what your camper will need.
