  • Program Nurses can only accept medication for which we have authorized medication consent.
  • Medication must be given directly to our Nurse on/before the first day of your program.

To ensure the health and safety of everyone, we request participants stay home to rest and recuperate upon the onset of the following conditions:

Please call the office to report an absence.


Recreation Periods are provided for programs for Pre-K-8th Graders:

  • Hydration
    It is important that our students stay hydrated, and we encourage everyone to drink water throughout the day. There will be water stations set up throughout breakout areas, and our staff will offer frequent reminders and give opportunities for water breaks during the day.
  • Sunscreen tips
    Liberally apply sunscreen in the morning before arrival. Use a waterproof or water-resistant sunscreen with SPF of 30 or more


Campers with Food Allergies will need to bring their own lunch and snack to camp since our food service provider cannot guarantee meals or snacks that are peanut-free, tree-nut free, free from other common food allergens (dairy, soy, wheat, etc.) or free from any cross contamination.

Snack Option: For your camper’s safety, your camper can bring snacks to camp which will be managed by our camp nurse. For your convenience, campers with food allergies (other than peanuts or tree nuts) will be offered apple slices and bananas which will be distributed by the camp nurse. We will also offer 2 snack options for campers with peanut and tree nut allergies–fruit and a snack called Bitsy’s (, which are made in a peanut-free and tree nut-free facility.Those participants with food allergies must bring their own snacks and lunches. Please see our Food Allergy Policy which outlines the measures we take to keep our students with food allergies safe.


Parents of children in PreK-8th grade are required to turn in any medication required for a life threatening medical condition to the Program Nurse per our medication policy. This medication will travel with the adults responsible for the child throughout the program day. Students in Grades 9-12 may carry these medications on their person throughout the program day with parent permission.


We ask that only “Popsicle” Brand popsicles are brought for group treats. Please avoid varieties with dairy or fresh fruit.
