Day Camp - Camper Information

Welcome to Camp

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.

General Info
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.
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.

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.  Campers are not allowed to share food. 

Inclement Weather - If there is bad weather approaching, the campers will be taken inside of the gymnasium. 
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.
Special Instruction Slips - These forms (located at check-in) are to be completed and handed to camp staff, in the morning, when the child will be picked up early  or you have other special instructions for the camp staff to be aware of.
Monday Morning Camper Orientation - At the beginning of each week, we will divide the campers into small groups according to age and hand out camp T-shirts. We will also share our expectations with campers of what they can and cannot do while they are at camp.  Some of our rules include having respect for each other, being good listeners, and being kind to one another. We also talk about nature preservation and the prohibition of items brought to camp that would represent a danger to anyone.  After this short meeting, we will begin a great week of summer camp! 
**Please note that any camper who hits another camper will be dismissed immediately**

How will Camp Counselors communicate with me?
Counselors will mainly communicate with you when you drop your child off in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon. If there is a situation where you need to be reached immediately, you will be contacted by the Camp Director or staff at the Recreation Center.

I forgot to pack my child a lunch - what do I do?

We will contact you if a child comes without a lunch. If it is not possible for you to bring a lunch to the child, there will be food provided. 

What if my child is going to be late or not attending Camp?
If you know in advance that your child will be late or not attending, please inform us in person the day before (fill out a special instruction slip).  If you are not aware of your child being late/absent until that day, please call Camp at 734-971-6355 x0.  This is very important because we may be holding up activities based on the assumption that your child will be at camp. 

What should I do if I am picking my child up early from Camp?
Please let Camp staff know when you drop your child off in the morning.  This way we can have your child ready and waiting for you.

What do I do if a person other than myself needs to pick up my child?
All persons over the age of 18 who are eligible to pick up your child must be listed on their Emergency Form.  If the individual is not listed on the form, you may ask the Coordinator to update your form prior to that day or submit a letter stating the day, time and full name of the person picking up your child from camp (ID required at time of pick-up).

What if my child is sick?
As a health standard, courtesy to other Campers and staff, and for the well-being of your child, sick Campers (runny nose, fever, etc.) are not allowed to attend Camp.

Will my child be watching movies?
We do not show movies at our camp. We are privileged to have other activities for the kids to enjoy such as basketball, reading, games, crafts, etc. 

If my child leaves something at Camp, where could it be found?
Lost & Found is kept through the last day of Camp.  Please speak with a Counselor if your Camper lost an item and you need to look through the bin.
