Club Registration Requirements
If you are not a Club Member of Detroit Yacht Club, you must be “Sponsored” by a Club Member in order to register your child for camp. The Sponsoring Member will not be charged in association with Camp DYC in any way, however, he or she must be aware that you are listing him or her as your Sponsor. This policy allows Detroit Yacht Club to ensure that all Non-Members attending camp are associated with a Club Member in some way.
Age Range: 4 - 10
All campers must be at least 4 years old by the first day they attend camp. In addition, campers must be potty-trained and able to handle a full day program.
Each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience for our campers as no two days with KE Camps are exactly alike! Our days begin with Hello Camp, a morning meeting of sorts where, through an assortment of organized activities, campers and staff get to know each other, review the day’s schedule and sing our special camp song! Similarly, we will end our days with Goodbye Camp, a time for wrap-up activities and reflections, SMILE Bands, snacks, and “see you later’s”. The bulk of camp will be spent participating in a wide variety of activities throughout the day that may include:

Lunch & Snacks
A kid-friendly lunch will be provided by the club daily for all campers. If you would prefer to pack your own lunch for your child, please do so in a cooler or backpack.
A snack will be served each afternoon to all campers. We encourage you to pack some extra snacks for your child as well.
Please note that we are a “nut aware” camp. We ask that you do not pack any food for your child that contains nuts. Likewise, the lunches and snacks served by the club will not contain any nuts. If your child has a food allergy and you have questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
KE Camps requires all campers to wear our official camp shirt each day of the week. Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. Campers should dress in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Additional shirts may be purchased at camp. Camp is a place to un-plug! Please pack the following items in a labeled bag or backpack:

Registration & Payments
Registration for Summer 2022 is open to Club Members and their Guests. You must be enrolled in advance in order to attend camp. We are happy to accept online registrations up until the night before the start of each week of camp, provided that space is available and your child's Health Form Supplement is received.
Full payment is due upon registration. This includes a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $42 which includes 2 camp t-shirts.

Cancellations & Refunds
All requests for cancellations or changes must be made in writing to our office via email at email@example.com.

Meet Your Camp Director
Dear Camp Families,
My name is Maya and I am so excited to be the camp director at Camp DYC this summer!
I am currently a mentor for incoming freshmen and sophomores at my Wayne State University, to help them navigate our college campus and resources. While that’s my job throughout the school year, I’ve spent my summers since I was a teenager being a counselor at a hype overnight sports camp in Golden, Missouri. I taught campers ages 10-18 how to dance, shoot archery, play volleyball and so much more! During the school year, I also teach athletes on the spectrum how to become more physically active. These programs allow me to create positive, adventurous experiences for children in all stages of life and it's super fun to be a part of. I enjoy seeing kids learn about themselves and their different strengths, like communication and independence skills.
I’m excited to use this summer to create awesome memories that build confidence within the campers as well as bonds that will last a lifetime with everyone at camp!
See you soon!
