Is the camp licensed by the state of Connecticut?

What medical forms are needed for enrollment?
A current physical with immunizations record (within 3 years) is required for each camper. Doctor's orders and parent's permission documents are required for all medications.
How are the counselors chosen? What is their experience?
Counselors are chosen for several qualities. Thorough background checks are completed to ensure quality of character, high dedication and effort. With a high return rate, the camp staff has several years of collective experience and quality working relationships with one another and the camp community. The staff strives to build wholesome relationships with the children as positive Christian role models.
What is the ratio of counselors to campers?
The ratio is about one counselor per seven campers.
Are there lifeguards and a nurse on staff?
Select counselors are trained as lifeguards and administer lifeguard supervision at all swimming locations. A camp nurse is fully trained to administer first-aid needs. Counselors are trained in CPR and basic first-aid.
What is the lunch procedure?
Campers bring their lunch to camp each day, which is stored in refrigerators or coolers for transportation on offsite days. Occasionally, lunch will be provided on special trips or events. Lunches and snacks containing peanuts or peanut products are not allowed at camp.
What do campers need to bring each day?
In addition to lunch, campers should bring a bathing suit, a towel and sunscreen. Any other items, such as sneakers or additional clothes will be requested on the weekly schedule when needed.
Does my child need to come from a Christian background or attend a church?
No. In the past, campers have come from a variety of faith backgrounds, or none at all. No one is judged or made to feel excluded based on these characteristics. The goal of Summer Adventure’s Bible time is to share the truth of scripture and what it means to have a relationship with Christ.
