Activities

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:

Wacky Wednesdays

Thankful Thursdays

We are excited to announce the return of Thankful Thursdays into our camp program! In true camp spirit, every Thursday campers will have the chance to give back to their community by working together on a simple, fun and rewarding community service project. Check out this summer’s Thankful Thursday Calendar!

Lunch & Snacks

The club will provide a delicious lunch, afternoon snack and beverage daily. 

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.

Packing List

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 sneakers (with no spikes or large grooves), but no jeans or cargo shorts. 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:

Extra Snacks (Optional)
Face Mask: Please pack 2-3 face masks and a mask lanyard or necklace each day.
Flotation Device (U.S. Coast Guard Approved): If you know that your child will be classified as a Bogey (our term for Non-Swimmer) this summer or you prefer your child to be classified this way, please pack a properly fitted U.S. Coast Guard Approved flotation vest for use in the Shallow End of the pool.

Covid-19 Safety Policy

As we enter into Summer 2021, we are fully prepared to take on the challenging circumstances surrounding Covid-19 - we did it in Summer 2020 and we can do it again! The health and safety of all campers, families, and staff members continues to be our absolute top priority. As we are all well-aware, protocols and guidelines surrounding Covid-19 are fluid and as such, we will adapt and adjust our policies, as needed, leading up to and during the camp season.

We encourage you to enroll early as spaces will be limited this summer and we expect that camp will fill up quickly!  We are sure you agree that a summer spent at camp will be more needed and meaningful than ever this year.

Please find our 2021 Covid-19 Safety Policy here.

Parent Manual

Be sure to read this manual for important and specific details about camp.

CT Camper Health Form Supplement

Download this health form, print, complete and fax or email back to us as soon as you can and definitely before camp begins. You may also log back in to the registration site after you have enrolled your child to upload the paperwork there. We will ask for some medical information about your child during the online registration process. In addition, CT state law requires that this supplement be on file for every camper. We thank you for your cooperation in getting this form to us in a timely manner.

Authorization to Administer Medication Form

Should your child require any medication during the camp day (including an Epi-Pen or Inhaler), we ask that you complete this form and send it directly to our office or hand it to your Camp Director on your child’s first day of camp.

Individual Plan of Care for a Child

Should your child have a special health care need such as allergies, hearing or visual impairment, chronic illness, developmental variations or any other special need or disability, we ask that you complete this form and send it directly to our office or hand it to your Camp Director on your child’s first day of camp.

Meet Your Camp Director

Dear Campers and Families,

It may seem like it has been forever, but summer is finally around the corner! We have been working hard planning for camp, making every moment count with everything from games and crafts to lessons and swimming. I have fond memories of my time as a summer camper, even if it was a (very) long time ago. Just like it was for me, summer camp is a time for you to relax, get outside, make connections with your fellow campers, and have fun.

I am thrilled and excited to be your camp director this summer. I have been an educator for over fifteen years as a secondary math teacher and as a STEM curriculum director. I am currently working on my doctorate in instructional leadership. I like to get involved with kids outside of school too. I have directed the school musical a few times, acted in community theaters, sang in choirs, advised debate and chess clubs, and tutored.

This past year I even got to virtually teach elementary and middle school kids how to make contraptions in Minecraft. When I have free time, I enjoy video games, board games, and playing pretend with my three-year-old daughter. I love to teach, I love to learn, and I love to have fun. I hope you will show us what you love to do too!

This summer, things may look a little different than when I was in camp, but the goals are the same. We are going to have fun, make friends, learn lots, and be safe. I look forward to meeting each of you and helping to make your experience with us a memorable one.

See you at Camp!
