Children must be the appropriate age prior to the first day of camp. While we do sometimes make age exceptions for children that are close to the appropriate age, these exceptions are not considered until after the Memorial Day holiday. Upon registration parents receive a camp information packet inlcluding a schedule, what to bring and not to bring to camp, general information about our camps, and a Camper Information Form. Parents must complete all three pages of this form and return it at least 10 business days prior to the first day of camp. Camp packets and the Camper Information Form are also available to download from the this page.
