Club Registration Requirements
If you are not a Club Member of The Club at Old Hawthorne, 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 Old Hawthorne in any way, however, he or she must be aware that you are listing him or her as your Sponsor. This policy allows The Club at Old Hawthorne 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.
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
You have the option to purchase a kid-friendly lunch provided by the club for $35 per week. If you would like to purchase this option, you may do so during online enrollment. Otherwise, you are welcome to pack a lunch for your child.
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. Additional shirts may be purchased at camp. Campers should dress in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Camp is a place to un-plug! Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. Please pack the following items in a labeled bag or backpack:

Registration for Summer 2022 is open and will continue until we are full. You must be enrolled in advance and at the latest by 11:00am CST the Sunday before each week, 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.

Meet Your Camp Director
Dear Camp Families,
My name is Jessica White and I am so excited to see you at camp this summer! While this will be my first summer camp, I have been working with all ages of children for the last 15 years. During the school year, I work as a 5th grade teacher. I got my teaching degree from Mizzou!
I am excited for camp because we get to be outside, play games, and make new friends. Summer is my favorite season because of the warm weather, school vacation, and the endless fun! I loved summer camp when I was a kid because I loved doing all the outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, and biking.
In my free time, I love taking my dog on hikes, geocaching with my daughter, and playing board games with my family. I cannot wait to meet you at camp and have an unforgettable summer together!
See you soon!
What makes me happy: Fireworks and Stars!
Favorite Food: Cereal - I love all kinds!
Fun Fact: I've been skydiving and whitewater rafting!
Favorite Color: Teal
Camp activity I'm most excited about: Arts & Crafts
