From time to time we will have special events or dress up days that campers and families are invited to participate in. Below is a schedule of these events for the upcoming summer. Please note, that this schedule may change during the summer, and all parties involved will be notified by email of any such change.
Parent /Camper Orientation:
Saturday, June 17th, 2-4pm in the Burgundy Gym.
This year the Parent/Camper Orientation will be split into two separate sessions:
*2-3pm: Camp Paperwork Session – families can come and meet with staff to complete/turn-in the VA Health Form, the Proof of Identity/Program Registration forms and the Medicine Authorization Form as well as check-in accompanying medicine(s).
*If your paperwork is taken care of and submitted you DO NOT need to attend this portion for the event!
*3-4pm: Orientation Presentation: chance to meet camp staff and see your camp locations.
*This portion of the event is for camp families as well as the campers.
If you are unable to attend the Parent/Camper Orientation it is highly recommended that you read through the Parent Handbook very carefully.
