Club Registration Requirements

If you are not a Club Member of Schuylkill Country 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 SCC 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 Schuylkill Country Club to ensure that all Non-Members attending camp are associated with a Club Member in some way.

Age Range: 5 - 12

Camp is for children entering Grades 1 - 6.

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

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

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.

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)
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)
Sunscreen: Spray for body is preferred
Swimsuit
Towel
Water Bottle

Registration & Payments

Registration for Summer 2022 is open and will continue until we are full. You must be enrolled in advance, however, in order to attend camp. 

Full payment is due upon registration.  This includes a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $42 which includes 2 camp t-shirts. We accept ACH payments and American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover. We encourage all families to pay via ACH as all credit card transactions will be subject to a 2.5% surcharge to offset the cost of credit card processing. 

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 26, 2022 of the camp season 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.

Meet Your Camp Director

Dear Camp Families, 

My name is Sammantha Nelson (you can call me Sammy), and I am the director of SCC Day Camp at Schuylkill Country Club! I cannot wait to meet each and every one of you and begin our summer fun in the sun! 

I am 29 years old, live in Pottsville with my adorable pug, Paisley, and love to travel to new places and experience new things! I am currently the high school Spanish teacher at Schuylkill Haven Area High School, which means that yo hablo español. I have been teaching Spanish for 7 years and advising the school’s Student Council, Spanish Club, and Student Activities Committee. After spending the last few summers with my students in Costa Rica and Peru, I have decided that I never want a summer to go by when I won’t have the opportunity to work alongside enthusiastic kids who are ready and willing to grow and learn new things with me! 

In my free time, I enjoy jamming out to Disney songs, maintaining my Animal Crossing Island, creating beautiful crafts, playing board games and card games, and smiling and laughing! Maybe we could do some of those things together at camp? 

I am SO excited to serve as your director and I am already counting down the days to meet you all! 

See you soon, camp friends!  

Sammantha Nelson
