Welcome to Camp - Camper Information
We look forward to having your child at camp this summer! This web page has all the information you'll need to prepare for attending camp. If you haven't found the information you're looking for, please see the contact information below.
Emergency Form - This form must be completed in full and turned in on your child's first day of camp. One form per child.
Drop Off/Pick Up - Camp Begins at 9:15 a.m. and ends at 4:15 p.m. If you need to bring your child prior to 9:15 a.m. or pick him/her up after 4:15 p.m., you must pre-register and pay for pre-camp and/or post-camp.
As you enter Independence Lake, please stop at the gatehouse and inform the staff member you are dropping off/picking up for day camp. Continue to the parking lot furthest away from the park entrance. Camp will meet at the Beach Center building at the top of the hill.
We record each camper’s arrival and departure each day and verify the identity of who picked them up. When picking up any child you will be asked to show identification to ensure the safety of each child at camp. We appreciate your cooperation with this procedure.
What to bring to Camp:
• A backpack or small duffel bag to carry items
• Reusable water bottle - we drink water all day!
• Swimsuit and towel
• SUNSCREEN is a must since we are often outdoors, and safety is a main concern!
• Sack lunch, a drink and snacks. All food items will remain in the child's personal backpack
• Sweatshirt or windbreaker for those occasional cool, windy days
• Campers should wear tennis shoes for walking at all times. Flip flop/sandals are only to be worn at the spray play or beach.
• Bug Spray
**Please label items with your child's name.
Lunch - Campers will not have access to a refrigerator or microwave. We encourage campers to bring waste-free lunches and snacks. A waste-free lunch is one where every item or wrapper can be eaten, reused, or recycled.
Inclement Weather - In the event of a Tornado Warning for the Independence Lake County Park area (Washtenaw County), parents should come pick their child up from camp immediately.
Camp T-shirt - Each camper will receive a camp T-shirt on Monday morning. We ask the children to wear this camp shirt each day. This helps counselors easily recognize the children they are responsible for.
