FAQ

 TRANSPORTATION

Q.  What transportation service do you use and why are you'll driving.

A. We are using Dillon Bus Service.  The drive is done while the youth are sleep.  In addition we want to eliminate your price of paying for a high airline ticket.  This also gives us the flexibility to do more during the day because of our advantages of transportation.

Age Groups

A: Yes. Each of our Day Camp sessions has a maximum enrollment of 50 kids, ages 7-12. The campers are then divided by age into 4 groups of up to 7. So for example, if you were to enroll a 7 year-old child, they would probably be in a group with other  7 year-olds (the exact breakdown of age groups depends on how many children of what age enroll for that camp session). Each group of 10 has one Squad Instructor and an assistant instructor.

 MEDICATION

Q: How will my child get his or her medications at camp?

A: Our registration includes a medical history with list of medications that is shared with all instructors.  If your child has an epi pen for allergic reactions or inhaler for asthma, we ask that the child carry it in his or her pack and let the instructor know where it is in case of emergency.

At day camps, we do not generally supervise medications.  At overnight camps, the camp director will hold medications for your child in a secure location and help remind them when it is time to take the next medication.  We ask parents to bring medications in the original container in a sturdy zip lock bag with the child’s name on it and clear instructions for the medications so we can assist them.  Discussion with the camp director prior to attending  is required.
