Thank you for signing up for Mill Creek YMCA summer TREK CAMP for JULY 29-August 2. At the Y, we believe a summer camp should be an impactful experience in a child’s life. We do our very best to make sure this happens every day by providing great staff to serve as role models, mentors and teachers. We seek to provide opportunities for each child to learn a new skill, make new friends and take on new challenges. TREK combines the fun and freedom of being in a community based setting, learning new skills and making new friends.
If this is your first week of TREK camp, please read the welcome/info letter.

Week 6 'GET DRENCHED! Week
Camp Location: camp location is based out of the Mill Creek YMCA. Camp runs from 9am-4pm with extended care 6:30am-9am and 4pm-6:30pm. During extended care hours, campers are provided a healthy snack mornings and afternoons and are able to interact with kids from other camps.
Where to Sign-in/Sign-out: You will sign your camper in/out each day in the grass area on the southwest side of the YMCA (behind the gym). You will want to park in the top parking lot and we will have signs directing you where to go. Please remember to bring your ID and FAST PASS when picking up at the end of each day. If you have not yet picked up a fast pass, you can grab one at drop off the first day of camp. Kids will only be released to a parent or guardian who is listed on the camp registration form with matching ID.

What to Bring Everyday: Backpack or bag, Nut-free lunch, swimsuit, towel, water bottle, socks, 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/snacks. If your child has allergies, make sure you are sending them with necessary medications and have it documented on their paperwork.
