Day to Day Information

Q:What time is camp?
A:The official camp day:
- Campers entering Pre-K 9am-2:30pm (after-care options available)
- K-7th 9am-3:30pm (after-care options available)

- Early drop off is from 8:15-9am. It is included in the cost of camp. Most campers typically arrive between 8:30-9am.
- The 30 minutes between the end of the day and after-care are set aside for pick-up, rather than participating in activities.

Q:How old are Kids in the Game campers?
A:3.5 years old (or entering Pre-K4) to 12 years old (or entering 7th grade). We welcome campers entering Pre-K4 in the Fall that are potty trained and able to communicate effectively with counselors.
Campers are grouped based on the grade they are entering.

A:Groups remain fixed and under 15 campers. Our ratios are:
- Campers 3.5-5 years old: 1:6

- Campers 8-13 years old: 1:12
*For off site field trips, the ratio is always 1:5.

Q:Can my child be in a group with a friend?
A:Yes! Campers must be entering the same grade. We ask that each family fill out the “Friend Request” area during registration. We will always do our best to accommodate friend requests, but can not guarantee campers will always be placed in groups with their friends.
