NOTE: Camp already has a waitlist for several weeks during the upcoming 2023 summer. There is a waitlist per group, and per week. The waitlist is in place for safety and legal reasons. Unfortunately, we are not able to notify you of your child’s location on the waitlist, or accommodate when one sibling gets in and the other doesn’t. You will receive an email confirmation if/when you’re added off the waitlist.

Please inform the counselor and director of any allergies! We take all epi pens, medicine, or auvi-q’s with us wherever we go and all counselors are trained. We also have a list of allergies provided during registration that’s shared with the counselors at lunch time.
We are coming to camp with friends, would they be able to be in the same group?
Groups are based on age and grade, so it is solely dependent on that. We cannot make exceptions.
Do you group them according to age and is it coed?
Groups are coed by age/grade.

At most, there are 10 campers for every counselor but more commonly it is a 6-1 ratio, plus CIT’s (counselors in training).
What is the age range of the entire camp?
Camp runs ages 3-12, Pre-k (age 3 by April 1st AND POTTY TRAINED, up until 12-entering 7th grade)
Is there a way if we can pay for certain days and not the whole week?
Unfortunately, no. Guest registration is no longer offered. Capacity limits prevent us from being able to offer daily registrations. Campers must register for full weeks to attend camp.
Can we pay for one week and choose our five days?
No, camp registration is whole week only. However, it is up to you whether or not to send your campers each day. You will not be reimbursed for missed days.
Can I get a refund if I cancel my registration?
No, we do not give refunds. Your registration may have prevented another child from attending camp. We hire based on the number of kids we are expecting.
Should my camper wear a bathing suit?
Yes! We are right next to the bay and we go up to the beach as much as the weather permits. We also go kayaking and do lots of water activities to keep the kids cool, so it is best to send them in their suit so they are ready to go!
Should I send a towel with my camper?
Yes! For all the water activities we do a towel is always great to dry off! Make sure to write your name on it with a permanent marker so it doesn’t get lost!
Does my camper need sneakers?
We have clay tennis courts and we require flat bottomed sneakers, if you don’t have those please send regular sneakers as your camper will be on the courts a minimum of two days a week!
What about sunscreen?
Always sunscreen your camper before they come rain or shine! If your camper stays for lunch they can always re-screen themselves!
Is there a water fountain at Camp?
Yes we have a water fountain attached to the Bay Beach House and we have water on the tennis courts as well! We always recommend sending a water bottle with your camper so they have it at all times and can beat the heat! Remember to write your camper’s name on it so as not to lose it!
What do we do during the day at camp?
We are as active in the sun as much as possible! Every day all age groups attend art with and create a masterpiece that goes with the day’s theme! Every other day groups get to play an hour of tennis on the court and perfect their skills. Campers will have the opportunity to kayak, and swim in the bay or the ocean every day. Campers will play all sorts of games that range from SLIME DAY all the way up to Carnival Day which is a camp favorite!
