If an opening becomes available for your child, we’ll contact you to make sure your child still wants to attend camp. Then, we’ll charge your card and process the registration.

Activities & Facilities

Yes, there are certified lifeguards at the pool, and CPR-trained water park staff monitoring campers in the water park.

All 5–7 year olds stay in the shallow end of the pool (3-4') and those 8–12 year olds who wish to swim in the deep end or use the diving board must first past a swim test. Your camper may bring arm floaties for use in the shallow end of the pool.

Pool toys (fun floaties, snorkels, fins, etc.) may not be brought to camp. Goggles and arm floaties are welcome.

Ice skating is often a fun, new experience for campers. Until they become comfortable on the ice, we recommend campers hold on to the railing that goes around the ice rink. Those who are not interested in participating may watch while their group skates.

Safety is always our top priority! If there’s lightning in the area, campers will participate in indoor organized activities until the weather clears and outdoor activities can resume. If there’s only a light rain and no lightning in the area, outdoor activities can continue as normal.

The last tour time available each day is 2:30 p.m.
