What happens if it rains?
We will do our best to hold camp in the rain. We will relocate the camp indoors if the “flashbang” time is less than 30 seconds. Outdoor activities will be suspended until at least 15 minutes after the last flashbang of < 30 seconds occurs. If a major rain event is forecasted we will cancel camp and alert parents of the cancellation (via website and text messaging).
What if the temperatures are too hot?
Generally, we can hold camp in the mornings even on the hottest days. We ensure campers and volunteers are well-hydrated while at camp and apply sunscreen liberally. Water games are also scheduled for each day to help keep the campers refreshed.
Are water and snacks provided?
Yes. Each age group will have a daily snack time during the morning (sometime between 9:30 and 11:00 am) which includes, Gatorade and water, and cookies and pretzels. We will also have water at locations throughout the site that campers can access during their rotations.
Will gluten-free or other dietary restrictions be provided, or should I bring my snacks?
Campers with dietary restrictions should bring their snack. We will not have any snacks with nuts at the site.
Do volunteers have to go through a background check?
Yes, all volunteers over 18 will have a background check. All volunteers will be required to submit adult, non-familial references. All of our age group leaders will have personal interviews.
Will first aid be available?
Yes. A first aid station will be available to all campers and volunteers throughout the camp. Volunteers will be trained in applying basic first aid. An emergency response plan will also include a point person assigned to respond to medical issues.
