Deposits are non-refundable, non-transferable; if full fees have been paid, a refund less the deposit will be issued if notice is received in writing by the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services department at least one week prior to the scheduled payment due date.

Parents can pick up their child between 3 to 4 p.m. If you need to pick up your child early, please make arrangements that morning in writing when dropping off your child.

When parents arrive for camper pick-up, parents will call the camp phone and camp staff will escort the camper out. Parents will show ID and sign out, outside facility.


Staff are NOT authorized to disperse or administer medications, including prescription medications. If your child carries an epinephrine pen for severe allergic reactions, we ask that they know how to use it by themselves and keep it in a fanny-pack or back pack at all times. This includes staff applying sunblock to your child. Parents will provide sun block in a spray application if a parent prefers that camp staff apply the sun block to their child/children. See the Medication Form in the Parent Pack.
