FAQS
What is the difference between day camp and elite camp, and is there a required skill level?

The main difference between Day Camp and Elite Camp is the number of sessions. Day Camp consists of morning and afternoon sessions and Elite Camp has the additional evening session. There is no required skill level at any camp. Campers are grouped by age first, then skill level, and any necessary adjustments are made after the first day. Younger campers often attend Elite Camp as commuters. They do not stay in the dorms, but are dropped off in the morning and picked up at 9pm. This is a parental choice as you know your child best.

What time does camp start and end?

Day Camp: Check in between 8:00-8:45am on the first day and 8:45am on the other days. Camp ends at 4:00pm all days, EXCEPT the last day. The last day of camp will end at 12pm. Closing events begin around 11:15am on the last day of camp.

Elite Camp (overnight and commuters): Check in between 1:00-2:30pm on the first day. Camp ends at 11:00am on the last day and closing events begin around 10:15am.
