Tips and Tricks
- Transfers are done across campus by “walking school bus”. If your camper is younger, or has difficulty walking longer distances, consider pairing day camps that take place in close proximity of each other.
- Worried about coordinating pick-ups in multiple locations? There is a 15-minute grace period after each camp for camper pick-up. Or consider an Extra Care option to help accommodate your schedule.
- Summer can be hot! Plan for a mix of indoor and outdoor camps, or if your child is particularly heat sensitive, plan outdoor camps to take place in the morning when the sun is not as strong. Remember to pack sunscreen!
- Think complimentary and consider your child’s unique personality! Back-to-back high-energy sport camps for some children are a necessity, while for others this is overwhelming.
- If your child is feeling anxious about camp, help calm their nerves by letting them know what they can expect: talk about what they are signed up for, their transfer plan, and who will pick them up each day. Stop by campus and visit us the week before!
