  • Drop Off: Campers can be checked in between 8:30 am – 9:00 am Monday through Friday. Are you anticipating a late arrival? Give us a call at 410-919-1400 so we can let you know where to drop off.
  • Pick Up: Camper should be picked up between 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
  • Extended Hours: Need even earlier or later hours? No problem! You can sign up for extended hours and drop off as early as 7:00 am and pick up as late as 6:00 pm. This is included in the cost of camp but register in advance is requested. If you have signed up yet but would like to add this option, just give us a call or send an email.
  • Awards Ceremony: Want to experience a bit of camp yourself? Join us for the Awards Ceremony on Friday at 3:30 pm.
  • NEW THIS YEAR: Day camp will now offer the same activities that are offered to our overnight campers in the mornings. Day camp will also participate in the camp wide game each Friday competing with overnight campers.
  • Morning Activities:  We’re all about building independence and giving campers their choice for activities. This means all campers will get to choose their Activity Periods 1 and 2. Our campers will be divided by age: “Junior Campers” and “Senior Campers”. Each age group will get at least two options for each period of age appropriate activities to choose between. Options will change each day to give a variety of choices throughout the week.
  • Add On Activities: There are a few activities that campers can be pre-registered for before attending camp, these include Sailing 1, Sailing 2, Waterskiing & Wakeboarding, Horse Masters, and Paintball.
    • Sailing 1, Sailing 2, Horse Masters and Paintball: these periods take place from 9:15 am – 12:15 pm on Monday through Friday.
    • Waterskiing & Wakeboarding: a one hour morning activity period will be assigned to your camper for Monday through Friday.
  • Swim Test: Safety is a priority and since we are surrounded by water we make sure every camper does a swim test. Our test is not too scary and if your camper can swim one length of a 25 meter pool comfortably and tread water for 1 minute then they should be able to pass our swim test. Not to worry if they can’t, we just keep an extra eye on any of our “red band” swimmers and provide a free swim safety class in the mornings.

Keep an eye out for next week’s edition of Lett Catch Up because there’s plenty s’more to come!
