Where to Sign-in/Sign-out: You will sign your camper in/out each day in the cafeteria at Silver Lake Elementary, on the west side of the school by the field. Once you get into the parking lot, we will have signs directing you where to go. Please remember to bring your ID when picking up at the end of each day. Kids will only be released to a parent or guardian who is listed on the camp registration form with matching ID. If you are signed up for full day, drop off begins at 6:30am and pick up ends at 6:30pm.
PLEASE NOTE: If you signed up for only the 1/2 day part of camp, there is no care outside of the hours of 9-12 pm or 1-4 pm depending on if you registered for the AM or PM portion of camp.
What to Bring Everyday: Backpack or bag, lunch (if full day), two small snacks, large water bottle, sunscreen, appropriate clothes/shoes and a book to read. Due to allergies among school age children, we are a NUT FREE camp. Please do not send your camper with any peanut butter or nuts of any kind in their lunches. If your child has allergies, make sure you are sending them with necessary medications and have it documented on their paperwork. All other equipment needed for camps will be supplied to campers at camp.
