We are so excited that your child is coming to camp this summer! Below is some important information to help you prepare for camp. If you have any questions, please contact the office.
BEFORE YOU ARRIVE
The final balance is due the Monday before your child attends camp.
Roommate requests must be accepted the Wednesday before your child attends camp.
Spending money may be added to your child's account online. On average, Pee-Wee Campers and Junior Campers bring $20-$40, Junior High Campers bring $40-$60 and Teen Campers bring $60-$80. We will accept spending money during check-in (cash or check only), but the process will be expedited if it is done online in advance.
The health form must be updated and completed for your child to attend camp.
Our dress standard, as well as what to bring and what not to bring, can be found on our Packing List.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE
Check-in is from 3-5pm in the Dome on Monday. Please do not arrive to Woodlands Camp any earlier than 2:00pm.
Pick-Up will take place at 9:15am at your child's cabin AFTER closing activities on the last day of camp. Please be sure to pick up your camper by 9:45am. After 9:45am, campers will be sent to the office.
Medication will be turned into our health team at check-in. Please bring all medication in a Ziploc bag and in the original container. Please do not pack medication. Only our health team is allowed to administer medication. Our health center stocks basic over-the-counter medications (Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Benadryl, etc.) and first aid supplies.
Care Packages may be dropped off in designated bins during check-in. Please make sure to label each letter/package with the camper's name and the day you would like their package delivered. You may also purchase care packages at a 10% discount in the Trading Post on check-in day.
If your camper is arriving late, please contact the office prior to coming to camp. If your camper is leaving early, please bring a written permission note stating the day and time your camper will be leaving. Turn the note in at check-in.
In order to provide an unforgettable environment free of distractions, we ask that campers leave their cell phones and other electronic devices at home. If a camper brings an electronic device, it will be collected by the counselor and returned at the end of the week.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Health and safety is one of our primary concerns at Woodlands. Your kids become our kids, so we are very committed to providing a safe and caring environment for all campers. For this reason, we have the following safety standards and procedures in place:
Our Health Team is chosen very carefully. They are present with first aid equipment at all camp activities. We have a Registered Nurse and four health assistants on staff, as well as a doctor on call. If you have any questions regarding a health concern for your child, please contact Julie Estes, RN, at email@example.com.
Waterfront Safety is very important to us. Every camper is required to take a swim test before the first swim session starts. There is a team of certified lifeguards on duty and actively watching the campers when the lake is open.
Food Allergies and Sensitivities can be accommodated while your camper is at camp. Due to time constraints and the volume of food served during each meal, we do not offer special dietary menus; therefore, the kitchen staff cannot cook individual meals. You may, however, send supplemental/replacement food for your child. The food will need to be delivered to the kitchen between 2:30-4:30pm on check-in day. The food must be pre-made/cooked and pre-packaged in serving size containers. A refrigerator, freezer, microwave and dry storage is available. Please make sure to label the containers with your child's name, date to be served and meal to be served. Please make sure to complete the Allergy Form and bring it to the kitchen after check-in.
After Hour Emergencies can happen and we want to make sure that you can contact us if necessary. In the event of an emergency after hours (regular business hours are 8:30am-5:30pm), please call 706-865-0853x122.
