PICK-UP & DROP-OFF

We get cars in and out quickly and you don’t even have to get out of your car! Our Drop-Off & Pick-Up process is designed to be safe, easy and convenient. Our staff will be there when you pull up and they will open the car door. We have several security procedures in place for this process and all parents will receive their camp identification with their Family Orientation materials.

Just a few reminders

  • Please make sure to come at the time assigned on your Pick-Up Card.
  • Please drop-off & pick-up at your assigned area (see Pick-Up Card).
  • Please display your Pick-Up Card on your dashboard or show your VIP Card.
  • Please let us know if you are carpooling with other camp families.
  • Please don’t use your cell phone when in car line.

    EARLY PICK-UP

    Please call the Camp Office to arrange (must be prior to 2:30 PM)

    LATE CAMPER ARRIVAL

    Please bring your camper to the Camp Tent when you arrive

    LUNCH

     

    launchCampers should bring a lunch and refreshment (marked with their name and team name) in either a “Playmate” type insulated cooler or in a soft-sided, insulated thermo bag. We recommend that lunches contain ice or a freezer pack to keep the lunch and drink cool.

    HEALTH GUIDELINES

    medication

    HEALTH HISTORY RECORD

    WE WILL REQUIRE A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER’S SIGNATURE (MEDICAL CLEARANCE) DATED WITHIN THE LAST YEAR BEFORE YOUR CAMPER’S START DATE.  UPDATED VACCINATION RECORDS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL CAMPERS AND SHOULD BE UPLOADED TO YOUR ONLINE ACCOUNT BEFORE CAMP STARTS.

    Helpful Tip: Please check with your child’s school for a copy of their current medical clearance.  We have found this to be the easiest for parents/guardians when meeting this requirement.

    MEDICATION

     

    No medications at camp except for emergency medications such as epi-pens or inhalers.

    • We only permit emergency medications at our camps: Epinephrine injections for food allergies or rescue inhalers for asthma.
    • Campers must be able to self-medicate.
    illness

     

    ILLNESS

    To ensure the health and safety of all campers, we request that your camper stay home to rest and recuperate upon the onset of the following conditions:

    • a temperature of 100.5º or above.
    • experiencing the contagious phase of any illness.

    Please call the Camp Office if your child will be absent from camp, or notify us via email.

    STAYING HEALTHY WHILE HAVING FUN IN THE SUN

    Hydration

    It is important that our campers stay hydrated, and we encourage our campers to drink water throughout the day. There will be water stations set up near each activity area, and our Coaching Staff will offer frequent reminders and give opportunities for water breaks during the camp day.

    Sunscreen Tips

    Apply sunscreen in the morning before camp and use a waterproof or water-resistant sunscreen with SPF 30+.
