Drop Off: Campers can be checked in on Sunday from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. If you arrive early you will be asked to wait in line until 1:00 pm. Are you anticipating a late arrival? Then just drop off at the camp office after 3:00 pm.

Pick Up: Camper should be picked up between 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm on Friday. Please no early pick up between 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm.

Awards Ceremony: Want to experience a bit of camp yourself? Join us for the Awards Ceremony on Friday at 3:30 pm.

Add On Activities: There are a few activities that campers can be pre-registered for before attending camp, these include Sailing 1, Sailing 2, Sailing 3, Waterskiing & Wakeboarding, Horse Masters, Trail Rides, 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.
  • Trail Rides: a one hour elective period will be assigned to your camper, this activity only occurs one time throughout the week.

Transportation: Camp Letts can provide transportation from and to YMCA Silver Spring (Maryland) or YMCA Calomiris (Washington, D.C.). This must be registered for at least one week in advance and has a nominal fee.

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 Letts Catch Up because there’s plenty s’more to come!
