Welsh Hills School is a nut-free environment. Please do not send peanut or tree-nut products to camp.
Full-day campers are to bring a packed lunch each day. Please note that community dishes and utensils will not be available. A microwave will be available for campers to use.
Campers will also have the opportunity throughout the day to have a snack. Please be sure to pack one snack for half-day campers (or two snacks for full-day campers) and a refillable water bottle that your camper can refill. Please do not send soda or candy with your camper. If your child attends after-care, please include a snack for after camp.
Refunds + Withdrawals
Cancellations must be made in writing to the program director two (2) weeks prior to the first day of the camp session in order to receive a refund. The $50 deposit is non-refundable.
If you register for a week of camp but cannot attend all five (5) days of the session, your fees will not be prorated.
Makeup sessions will not be offered for any missed camp programs. All documentation required for a refund must be submitted by July 24, 2023. No refunds will be processed after this date.
What To Wear + Bring To Camp
Campers should wear weather-appropriate clothing and closed-toed shoes to camp. For safety reasons, please do not send campers in Crocs or flip-flops.
Campers will also need to bring a packed lunch, snack, refillable water bottle, sunscreen and a change of clothes labeled with your child’s name. Please check the course descriptions to see if any other materials are needed for each individual program.
Children's House campers will also need a labeled nap bag with two blankets, a small pillow and a lovey. These items will be sent home on Friday each week.
Campers who are rising kindergarteners through 5th grade will also need a swimming bag with a towel, pool shoes, sunscreen, and a snack. We are not responsible for swimming goggles brought to the pool.
Campers are responsible for managing their own belongings. Please make sure that all of their items can be kept in a backpack that they can manage on their own. We are not responsible for any lost personal items.
