Day Camp Sessions
8-one week sessions are offered. A session is Monday-Friday. Campers can attend any number of sessions. Sessions cannot be broken down by days or options per week. A session has to be paid in full, but a family can choose to send their child for as many days per week as they would like.
Day Camp Structure
All campers enjoy age appropriate games, sports, art & crafts, and more. R.E.C. Camp is camper based, where campers get to choose activities during "Choice Activity Time". Choice activities vary each year and counselors work on these during the staff training week. Teen campers have the opportunity to help plan activities, with their counselors, during the session they attend.

Camper Information/Health Form
The Camper Information/Health Form is part of registration. When registering your child for the day camp you will be required to answer a series of questions. You only have to do this once for the summer season. Your child's safety is important to us. Each summer a Camper Information Form must be filled out and on file at the day camp. It is important that you share all medical, behavioral, and emotional conditions that you feel we should be aware of to help your child have a positive experience while at camp. Changes can be made to the form at camp when you drop off or pick up your child.
Medication Authorization Form
It is best if your child takes needed medication prior to coming to camp each day. If they have to take medication while at camp a Medication Authorization Form has to be filled out and given to the camp director. Camp director cannot administer any medication until this form is completed and returned to them. Fill out the form completely and bring with your child and the medications on their first day of camp. Do not mail or drop off. Click Here for Form.
Adults authorized to pick up your child from camp must be indicated on your child's Camper Info/Health Form. Additions or deletions of names can be made on the form during the summer. Campers who are allowed to walk or bike to and from camp must have a note from a parent allowing them to do this. An arrival and departure time must be listed on the note. No child will be allowed to arrive after 8:30am or leave prior to 4:30pm.
If your child needs special assistance during camp hours, please speak with the Camp Director when you arrive on the first day, so that we may work together to determine feasible accommodations and to ensure a positive experience for your child.
