A Note from the Camp Director

abby_headshot-1

We know that you have many choices when you consider summer activities for your children, so we thank you for choosing Camp Westminster! We are excited to share our summer with you!

Like the school’s academic offerings, Westminster’s summer camps are engaging, innovative, and unique. In addition, the camps are staffed by caring counselors who help encourage values and strengthen campers’ abilities in a positive, fun, well-supervised environment. It is our goal for each camper to experience adventure, sharpen his or her skills, and build character.

We have a variety of camps to choose from, and we hope you spend several weeks with us!  We enjoy serving all of the families we meet during the summer, and we look forward to getting to know your family. Please don’t hesitate to call or email me with questions.

I look forward to seeing you at Camp Westminster!

FAQs

When can I register for Camp Westminster 2017?
Registration will open Saturday, January 28, 2017.

I need full-day care. If I sign up for a morning camp, what are my options for the afternoon?
You may sign up for any afternoon camp offered for your child’s age group that same week.

More FAQs

My child can only attend camp on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Will you adjust the price of the camp?
We are unable to adjust the price of a camp for part-time attendance.

I need to change my child’s camp schedule. How can I do this?
You may apply to new camps by logging into your Camp In Touch account and selecting Camper Application. All requests for camp schedule changes must be processed in writing via mail or email. Switching camps after May 31, 2017, will result in a $25 processing fee.

Help! I’ve enrolled my child(ren) in Camp Westminster, but now I don’t remember what camps I’ve signed them up for. Where can I find that information?
Your CampInTouch account now has that information! Using the “Login” button above, log in to your account and click “Camper Information” under the “Your Camper” heading. You’ll be able to see the camps your child is registered for under “Programs.”

At this time, I don’t know if I will need Extended Care in the morning or afternoon. Can I sign up for this at a later date?
Yes. You may add Extended Care to your student’s registration at a later date. However, to guarantee that space is available, you must sign up for Extended Care at least one week before the camp session. If necessary, you may put your child in Extended Care for one morning or afternoon, as space allows. We charge $10 per session, per day.

My child has allergies. How can I notify you about that?
The online registration program includes a medical form. Before your child can attend camp, the form must be completed. The purpose of this form is to provide emergency contacts, medical information and additional information you would like us to know about your child.

Is Camp Westminster nut-free?
While Westminster is not a nut-free campus, Camp Westminster aims to be nut-free in the following ways:

  1. We ask that parents who choose to pack their children’s lunches keep them free of nut products.
  2. The camp snack is popsicles; if the individual camps serve any other food, we require that it be nut-free.
  3. The lunches prepared by the camp caterer Hollyberry do not contain nuts.

However, some of the pre-packaged and pre-prepared food may contain (or have come into contact with equipment associated with products containing) nuts.

Do you have a camp nurse?
Yes. We have a registered nurse on duty from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. She is CPR-certified and has been Westminster’s full-time nurse for 15 years. She will have access to the medical information you have provided for your child.

My child has not attended Camp Westminster in the past. What does he/she need to bring and wear?
For all camps, children should dress appropriately for summertime activities. All campers should bring water bottles and sunscreen for outdoor camps. Some camps require additional supplies; one week before camp begins, you will receive an email reminder about what your child should wear and bring.

Is there a discount for registering early?
Yes! A 10% early bird discount will be offered to those who register on or before March 31. The discount applies to all camps.
