Registration Information



Registration for Summer 2019 opens February 1, 2019 @ 7 am. Last year 400 people registered in the first 24 hours which resulted in some camps being full on the first day.  Avoid disappointed campers by registering early. This year we have opted not to print brochures. Below you’ll find all the information you’ll need to register.

Swim Test

For outtrips,  before being allowed to depart, campers must complete the swim test which consists of swimming 5 lengths across the pond and 5 minutes treading water.  If a camper does not complete the swim test, parents will be notified. In the case of a canoe outtrip, in consultation with the parent(s) of the camper, a director may require a camper to stay on-site and not take part in the off-site canoe portion of the camp program .

For all other summer camp programs, campers must complete the swim test which consists of swimming 3 lengths across the pond and 3 minutes treading water.  Any camper who does not complete the swim test must stay in the shallow end of the pond or, if on a hiking outtrip, must wear a lifejacket AT ALL TIMES when in the water.
