Day Camp

Day camp information and registration
2021 Camp Registration Form

TYPICAL CAMP DAY
Campers move around the High Plains Community Center as a group, through a variety of activities, every day.  The daily schedule will change, but specials and lunch are at the same time each day.  Each activity is about 40 minutes long.  If there is an entertainer or special event, typical activities may be cancelled or adjusted for that day.  Excessive heat or rain may also change campers plans.

We will be following most of the same guidelines we used last year to provide and fun and safe summer camp experience for the campers and our staff.  It is our hope that it is a fun and entertaining experience, in spite of the changes.

Please read the guidelines we will be following this summer. If you have any questions - just ask. We are operating on the current CDC and OEC guidelines - if they change and we can relax anything, we will!

At drop off, no earlier than 8:45a, you will enter HPCC lot from the Cuzzocreo Pavillion driveway. Parents and siblings not attending camp will stay in their cars.
Campers please exit from the Driver’s side of the car only, with a mask on.

Any camper coughing, appearing ill, or with a fever of 100* or more, will not be able to attend until they are healthy.

Campers will be in groups of no more than 12 children and 2 counselors. Siblings will be kept in the same group, regardless of age.

Campers will be required to have masks with them at all times, and they will have to wear them all day. Counselors will also wear their masks all day, except when eating lunch.

Each group will have a designated picnic table area around the blacktop, and a room in HPCC, for their group exclusively. Lunches and snacks will be kept in their backpacks, and not be refrigerated this summer, so pack accordingly.

Unlike years past, we will not have any counselor specialists – your child’s counselor will lead the group in the Nature, Crafts, Science, and Sports activities. This will eliminate any counselor having contact with multiple groups.

The Campers will not travel on any field trips this year.
All presenters coming to camp will either have an outdoor presentation, or the groups will be in their room for the activity.
If a room must be used my multiple groups during the day, the schedule will be adjusted for disinfection between each group.
Campers will have swimming this year, distance lessons and an open swim period with their group.
Lifeguards on surveillance duty will not be wearing masks, but the additional staff members available to help, organize, and communicate with the campers will wear masks at all times.

At pick up you must enter the same driveway as drop off. Your child will be assigned a group and you will pull in line behind that color sign. We will call your child from their group to your car when you are at the front of the line. After your children are safely secured in the car, you will exit to the right only and proceed around the building driveway. Pick up will start at 4:15.
Campers arriving after 9:15am, must come into the Park and Rec office before going to their group, but not until 10am. All persons entering the building must wear a mask.
Campers may not leave during the day for appointments and return to camp that same day.
Campers being picked up early will also wait at the Nurse’s office. Advance notice of one hour minimum should be provided.
