Club Registration Requirements
Camp registration is limited to Hope Valley Country Club Members only. Please note, campers may enroll for a maximum of one week per summer.
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 KECamps 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
The club will provide a delicious and kid-friendly lunch for every camper each day. 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.
KECamps 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:

Meet Your Camp Director
Dear Camp Families,
My name is Megan Jones and I am extremely excited to be working with you at camp! This is my first summer with KE Camps and I am ready to make sure your child has a great time at camp! I am currently a kindergarten teacher in Durham, NC; I have been a teacher for 9 years and enjoy every moment of it. When asked why kindergarten, I always say - a child never forgets their very first teacher!
Camp was always one of my favorite things to do in the summer as a kid. I remember going to many camps, making friends, and learning new things about the world around me. Besides going on vacations with my family, camp has always been special to me. I cannot wait to meet all of you and I look forward to having an awesome summer together.
In my free time, I love spending time with my teenage daughter as well as my family. I also enjoy shopping, brunches, traveling, and of course, relaxing.
See you soon!
My camp nickname would be: Moonlight Meg
Favorite Food: Chinese food
I never leave home without: My phone
Camp activity I'm most excited about: Wacky Wednesday and Golf
