Club Registration Requirements
If you are not a Club Member of The Grove 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 Camp Grove in any way, however, he or she must be aware that you are listing him or her as your Sponsor. This policy allows The Grove Country Club to ensure that all Non-Members attending camp are associated with a Club Member in some way.
We are happy to offer a 10% tuition discount to those families enrolling 2 or more siblings in the same week(s). Use this discount code: GROVESIB
Age Range: 5 - 12
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
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.
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 & 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. 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 $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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellations made by June 13, 2022 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 Jacklyn Schlender and I am so excited to be your camp director this summer! I just graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with my degree in Elementary Education and minor in Social Work. This fall, I will be teaching third grade at Big Timber Elementary School in Hampshire, IL! I have been fortunate to work with kids through many positions: babysitter, nanny, coach, early-childhood researcher, teacher, camp counselor, and now camp director!
I am passionate about being a role model for children and always look to find ways to assist their individual growth, whether academically, socially, emotionally, or mentally. I am looking forward to this opportunity and cannot wait to plan engaging activities where your kids can build relationships and make lifelong memories! Summer is a wonderful time of the year because it allows us to enjoy outside time together and explore our interests beyond the school setting.
In my free time, I love to exercise, take my dogs on walks, explore new cities, and try new foods. I cannot wait to meet you and have an amazing summer together!
See you soon!
If I had a camp nickname it would be: Jolly Jacklyn
Favorite Food: Italian
Fun Fact: My family loves Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando!
I never leave home without: My phone and sunglasses
Camp activity I'm most excited about: Sports and Crafts!
