CAMP T-SHIRT. Each child will receive ONE t-shirt their first day of camp. Campers registered for multiple sessions will not receive additional t-shirts. Additional shirts can be purchased for $10.

DRESS CODE. The safety of our campers is our top priority. To increase the visibility and safety of our campers, we are require all campers to wear their camp T-shirts daily. Camp shirts from previous summers may also be worn. Additional T-shirts may be purchased for $10.00.

Tennis shoes or closed-toe sports sandals are highly recommended since a great deal of time will be spent outside if the weather permits. For safety reasons, flip-flop shoes are only permitted during Water Play Wednesdays.

We also encourage our campers to dress modestly, even during Water Play. Campers should wear shorts (knee length or just above) and T-shirts or board shorts and rash guards. No bathing suits please. Please refer to the Camp Checklist for additional information or speak to the camp director if you have any questions.

REFUND POLICY. A non-refundable 10% deposit is due upon registration to hold your child’s space. Registration processing fees charged by ACTIVE are also non-refundable. In order to receive the Early Bird Special, registration must be paid in FULL for all weeks by Nov. 15 (Winter Camp), Jan. 15 (Spring Camp) and April 15 (Summer Camp). Anyone registering after the early bird deadlines will have until Dec.1 (Winter Camp), March 1 (Spring Camp) and June 1 (Summer) to remit full the full camp payment. Payments for registrations received after May 1 for the summer are due at least two weeks before week 1 of camp. Payment plans are available.

A refund will be honored, less the non-refundable 10% deposit and registration processing fees, if notification is received by the camp registration office in writing, via email, or regular mail by Dec. 1 (Winter Camp), March 1 (Spring Camp) and April 15 (Summer Camp). No refunds will be honored thereafter (see one exception regarding Minimum Campers Needed). A $20 administrative fee will be added for each change that is requested after April 15 for summer Early Bird registrants and May 1 for all other summer registrants.

No substitution of siblings will be honored. Make-up days are not an option. No refunds will be issued in the event of camp closure due to inclement weather, emergencies, loss of power, safety concerns, or circumstances beyond the control of the camp.

SNACKS & LUNCHES. Free meals are not available during the winter and spring camps. Campers must bring their own snacks, lunch, and a filled water bottle. During the summer, our campers had the option of receiving free breakfast and lunch. The meals were provided by Revolution Foods. Only campers who are enrolled in Before Camp can sign-up to receive the free breakfast. We are in the process of securing free meals for this summer.

In the event that we are unable to provide free meals, campers should bring their own lunches. The free breakfast and lunch program is not a good option for children with food allergies and/or dietary restrictions. Additionally, ALL campers should bring water and a snack, even if they are enrolled in the free meal program. Campers enrolled in Before and After Camp should also bring an additional snack if desired.

Bring food items that are non-perishable and do not require warming in an oven or microwave. Due to allergies, campers are not allowed to bring nuts.

HEALTHY FOOD. We encourage parents to pack healthy snacks and lunches. Minimizing or avoiding foods that contain harmful chemicals, preservatives, refined sugars, refined flours, and hydrogenated fats is highly suggested. Kids and Culture staffers have been instructed not give children candy or gum at any time. For pre-planned special events, such as Festival Fridays, campers may have the option of eating a popsicle or other dessert that adheres to the standards set-forth above.
INCLEMENT WEATHER. Kids and Culture Camp will not close due inclement weather, unless the administrators overseeing the camp site determine that attendance will present a safety hazard or there is loss of power. In the event that camp is closed due to loss of power or safety concerns, parents will receive an email from the Director. Parents will also receive notification via email if other emergencies arise that may change the normal camp schedule. No refunds will be issued in the event of camp closure due to inclement weather, emergencies, loss of power, safety concerns, or circumstances beyond the control of the camp.
