Pricing Scenarios

Is lunch provided?

  • Yes.

 

Do you accomodate special diets/allergies?

 

Can my camper drop-in/out for days here and there?

  • No. Our program is designed to build on community and develop friendships, and to have activities that progress. Of course, appointments and illnesses etc., can arise, but we do not plan for single-day campers.

 

Are the staff adults?

  • Yes - our leadership and counselors are adults; we also have some teens as assistants, but not leaders. We do not count the teen Day Camp Assistants in our ratios.

 

Is before-care or after-care available?

  • No. Our day camp staff assist with our overnight programs, and are not available outside the designated times.
