NEW in 2017

Registration Auto Charge Feature Expanded

In the past, the system charged a registrants credit card automatically once entered in the system for registration deposits. This will remain. Additionally, all e-checks will auto charge as well. You no longer have to worry about remembering to come back to the system to make your payment. It will process 10 days (2 Fridays) before the selected camp week begins.

Car Tag required for ALL pickups

Each family will receive a car tag for pick-up for the week. Additional tags can be purchased during your registration for camp, and will be available for you at Monday morning check-in. You can also purchase tags in person. If your camper is in our Extended Care Program (Before Care and/or After Care) you will use your tag to identify yourself for pick-up each day. Please be sure to let us know of any loss of any tag(s), as we will use this to release your camper to the pick-up individual.

Returning Camper Line

We value our families and want to make our Monday morning check-in as smooth as possible. Your first attended session will include requiring all of our campers to enter through one line to check in, with several staff members present to make the process move along. However, in subsequent weeks, we will have a returning camper line, so that campers who have already gone through their check in process in a previous week may move to the expedited line! We hope this provides an improved layer of service that we strive to achieve each summer!

Rising Grade Change

We no longer categorize our divisions by “rising” grade levels. We will designate divisions by the current grade level (grade the camper will have completed by the start of summer camp). Divisions are as follows:

Preschool

  • 2 Year Old is for children who will be 2 years old on or before their first day of camp.
  • 3 Year Old is for children who will be 3 years old on or before their first day of camp AND fully potty trained.
  • 4 Year Old is for children who will be 4 or 5 years old on or before their first day of camp, and will be going into Kindergarten in the Fall of 2017.

Kindergarten-1st Grade

  • Kindergarten is for children who have completed Kindergarten in the 2016-17 school term.
  • 1st grade is for children who have completed First Grade in the 2016-17 school term.

2nd Grade- 5th Grade

  • 2nd grade is for children who have completed 2nd grade in the 2016-17 school term.
  • 3rd grade is for children who have completed 3rd grade in the 2016-17 school term.
  • 4th grade is for children who have completed 4th grade in the 2016017 school term.
  • 5th grade is for children who have completed 5th grade in the 2016-17 school term.
    • EXCEPTION: For Summer 2017 ONLY, 5th grade families will be offered a choice to keep their camper in 5th grade or move them to 6th grade. This choice is effective for the ENTIRE summer and cannot be altered. Please make your choice with great thought and consideration to your camper’s personality and adaptability. Also note that Pre and Post Camp is offered only up to 5th grade.

6th Grade – 8th Grade

  • 6th grade is for children who have completed 6th grade in the 2016-17 school term.
  • 7th grade is for children who have completed 7th grade in the 2016-17 school term.
  • 8th grade is for children who have completed 8th grade in the 2016-17 school term.

Overnight Trip – “Mini Sleep Away”

Our 6th-8th grade will have the opportunity to enjoy sleep away camps! We will take three (3) trips this summer that will have a two (2) night, overnight stay! Your camper will be able to take on a true adventure, taking full advantage of the activities and making more time to engage in the fun! Our mini sleep away sessions will occur on our Great Wolf Lodge, Rehoboth Beach and Harper’s Ferry Adventure Center trips. Already our counselors are excited to extend the days with their campers and make some amazing memories!
