A $50 registration fee per child is due to reserve weeks.This fee is nonrefundable and is paid once for the 2017 season. It is not applied toward camp tuition. Camp Tshirts may be purchased for $10 each.
All camper tuition must be paid THREE WEEKS in advance of the session in which the camper is enrolled and there are no refunds within this three week period.
There will be a $50 per week per family drop fee for canceling weeks before the tuition due date and a $25 per change fee to switch weeks after your registration form is submitted. You may add sessions at any time for no charge provided space is available.
DAILY CAMP HOURS
Tate's Day Camp offers an optional catered lunch service. A menu and prices will be emailed to all registered camp families prior to camp beginning. You must return a lunch card and lunch fees at least a week in advance to sign up for lunches. Campers not ordering lunches will need to bring lunch with them each day.
Additional information and a confirmation will be emailed to you prior to camp. A complete Camper/Parent Handbook may be found online at www.tatescamp.com. Please review this handbook with your child before attending camp.
Although our flexible weekly sign up allows plenty of scheduling freedom for parents, it sometimes creates difficult transitions for campers. Experience shows that campers are much more successful when they attend consecutive weeks. Because of the wide variety of activities we offer, there is often not enough time for a camper to participate in all of them during a single week! We recommend all three-year olds attend a minimum of two or more weeks during the summer and we encourage these weeks to be consecutive.
GROUP ASSIGNMENTS AND FRIEND REQUESTS
Campers are placed into age-specific groups based on grade level. In addition to grade level we consider other factors such as the number of consecutive weeks that campers are attending and the boy to girl ratios within each group.
When possible, we try to keep campers who are registering for consecutive weeks in the same primary group. Campers are welcome to pick and choose weeks when enrolling; however, campers not registering for consecutive weeks may be placed into different groups and have different group names and counselors when attending camp.
Counselors take steps at the beginning of each week to help campers meet new friends. If you would like to make a request to be with a specific friend, the request must be reciprocal and requested by both parties before April 1. We will try to honor ONE friend request, only if BOTH parties request each other, are in the same grade level, and are registered for the same sessions. Listing more than one request will void all friend requests. Friend requests are not guaranteed.
June 23 Camper Only Campout All campers registered for one or more weeks of camp in 2016 are invited to sign up for the "Camper Only" campout. There is an additional fee for this event and space is limited.
July 21 Family Campout This event is open to all families enrolling in camp regardless of when they are attending. Reservations must be made through the camp office. Sign up early because space is limited. Campers attending this event must bring at least one parent or guardian with them to the campout.
