Club Registration Requirements

If you are not a Club Member of Green Spring Valley Hunt 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 GSVHC Day Camp in any way, however, he or she must be aware that you are listing him or her as your Sponsor. This policy allows Green Spring Valley Hunt Club to ensure that all Non-Members attending camp are associated with a Club Member in some way.

Age Range: 5 - 10

All campers must be at least 5 years old by the first day they attend camp. In addition, campers must be potty-trained and able to handle a full day program.

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:

For more information on the golf and tennis lessons at camp, please click here.

Golf: 2 recreational group lessons each week
Tennis: 2 recreational group lessons each week
Swimming: recreational swim time in the club’s pool each day

Wacky Wednesdays

Every Wednesday at camp is a wacky one with a different festive theme – a true highlight of each week! Check out this summer’s Wacky Wednesday Calendar!

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

You have the option to allow your child to order lunch off the club menu and be billed for those lunch charges on your Club Member (or Sponsoring Member’s) account.  Otherwise, you are welcome to pack a lunch for your child in a cooler or backpack.  Regardless of which lunch option you choose, all campers will receive an afternoon snack provided by the club. 

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 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:

Extra Snacks (Optional)
Face Mask: Please pack 2-3 face masks and a mask lanyard or necklace each day.
Flotation Vest: 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 flotation vest for use in the Shallow End of the pool.
Golf Clubs (Optional)
Lunch (if not purchasing from the Club)
Sunscreen: Spray for body is preferred
Swimsuit
Tennis Racquet (Optional)

Payments, Cancellations, Refunds

Registration & Payments

Registration for Summer 2021 is open and will continue until we are full.  So, you may add additional weeks as the summer goes on. You must be enrolled in advance, however, 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.

Full payment is due upon registration.  This includes a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $40 which includes 2 camp t-shirts. We accept ACH Payments and American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.

If your child has special needs or will require extra assistance while at camp, please contact us before you enroll to discuss!

Cancellations & Refunds

All requests for cancellations or changes must be made in writing to our office via email at info@kecamps.com.  Cancellations made by June 20, 2021 will be refunded in full (less the registration fee).   After that, there are no refunds. We will, however, always offer a credit towards a future week (if space is available) or for next summer.

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.

Form Downloads

Don’t forget to take a look at the important camp forms below.

Parent Manual

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

MD 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, MD 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.

Meet Your Camp Director

Greetings Campers and Families!

My name is Richard Tripplin and I am excited to be your director at GSVHC Day Camp. We are going to have an awesome summer!

I have over 17 years of experience working with youth of all ages including through mentorship, group placement centers, non-profit and public-school settings. Currently, I am a special education teacher at Frederick Douglas High School in Baltimore City. Previously, I worked as a behavioral crisis management aide at the Kennedy Krieger LEAP School for Autism (some of my favorite students!) as well as the physical education counselor at Dogwood Elementary School Summer Camp.

Summer reminds me of nostalgic times from my childhood...a season of limitless possibilities, adventure, bonding with friends, and lots of fun! Maybe we will imagine space travel in the Millennium Falcon and create obstacle courses to fight off Storm Troopers and unleash the Jedi in all of us; or take a moment to quiet our minds and absorb the nature around us as we meditate under the warm summer sun. We are only limited to our imaginations and safety, which always comes first!

You will soon realize, if you have not already, that I am a fan of all things Star Wars. I collect pop culture bobbleheads with a collection of over 100 and counting. I also collect gemstones and search for their meaning. I love watching movies. I also practice a Zen lifestyle so that I always have positive energy and stay centered.

Along with our camp counselors, we will discover ways to infuse a camper’s uniqueness through cognitive thinking, team-building exercises, physical activity, and FUN! Creating friends and memories is what summer camp is all about! I cannot wait until the first day of camp so we can begin this adventure together!

See you soon!

Richard Tripplin
