Camp Waivers Needed For All Campers.

For all camps, you will need to fill out a Camp Bulldog Waiver in our registration system when you register.

It should include your insurance information and who is authorized to pick up your child or if your child can walk home by his/herself.

Be On Your Best Behavior, Please.

We want our camps to be fun and productive!  Therefore, we’d ask that you (parents/guardians) help us reinforce our behavior expectations.  We like kids to have “school behavior.”

  • Respect others (listening, no bullying or excessive smack talk)
  • Give maximum effort
  • Keep a positive attitude

If a child displays bad/disruptive behavior, we will follow the steps below in our 78 Camp Behavior Protocol.

  • Step 1: Talk with the child and help them navigate the behavior/situation
  • Step 2: Give a time out
  • Step 3: Phone call home
  • Step 4: Ask a parent/guardian to attend camp with the child to help monitor/control the situation
  • Step 5: Require the child to leave with without refund
