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 lessons at camp, please click here.

Golf: 2 recreational group lessons each week
Swimming: recreational swim time in the club’s pool each day
Arts & Crafts
Group Games

STEM Challenges

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 19, 2022 will be refunded in full (less the registration fee).  After that, there are no refunds.

Meet Your Camp Director

Dear Camp Families, 

My name is Taylor Burckhalter, but you all can call me Ms. Tay. I am so proud and honored to be returning as your director of Camp Whitemarsh Valley at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club! I am excited to see everyone again and to welcome new campers to our Camp WVCC family! 

A lot has changed since camp last year. I am now a fourth-grade Catholic school teacher in the University City/West Philadelphia area. This is my first-year teaching. I am also the assistant director of my school’s after-school program, and I may be the coach to their cheerleading team that will start next year. I also teach Sunday school at my church and I babysit on the side. I am also going to start my own tutoring program in the near future. 

I have a 16-year daughter (who most of you have met) who is an all-star cheerleader. She is a camp counselor herself at a different camp (following in her mom’s footsteps!). When I am not working, I like to do arts and crafts, read mystery and historical fiction novels, do yoga, work out and go on nature walks, and spend time with family and friends. 

The best advice I have heard comes from the educator, Rita Pierson. She said that “every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.” At Camp WVCC, we are our campers’ champions. We believe in building strong connections and encourage our campers to do and be the best they can be and have fun doing it. 

I started as a counselor my first year at WVCC, then became the assistant director, and now a director. In the past three years, I have had the best summers anyone could ask for. Last year, we did some amazing activities like having our very own camp carnival with so many games, prizes, and of course, popcorn and cotton candy! My counselors and I have so many ideas and activities for the campers this summer - everyone is going to have a blast! Last summer was great, but this one is going into the history books. 

I look forward to seeing you soon!  

Taylor Burckhalter
