How are the children divided up and how does the staffing work? Are children grouped by age? Campers are grouped according to age/grade. If there are numerous campers in a particular age group, we will split the larger group into two smaller ones. There will be one head counselor for each group and floater counselors assisting at stations such as the rock wall or outdoor turf. Also, assisting in supervising our summer camp program is the Youth Fitness Coordinator who is onsite daily.

Campers need to wear some type of athletic shoe or sneaker each day to camp. Sandals, flip flop crocs style or any other type of open shoe should not be worn to camp. If your camper is not properly attired, they will not be permitted to participate in camp activities and a parent/guardian will be notified and asked to bring appropriate attire.

Once assessed, swimmers will wear a swim band indicating where they are allowed in the pool. If the child cannot pass the swim test, he or she must stay in the 3½ foot depth of the pool area. If your child does not wish to swim they may choose an alternative activity supervised by one of the camp counselors
