What is the dress code for camp?
All clothes must be modest. Closed toe shoes, comfortable clothing as we are active all day!
How much down time do the campers have?
The campers follow a daily schedule that provides a routine activity mixed with some down time.
What are the ages of the camp counselors?
All camp counselors are 18 years and older.
Will my child be in large groups?
Our activities are geared to the developmental needs and interests of each age group. We protect the quality of the campers’ experience by limiting the participants in each camp unit and separating the campers into age groups. Abiding by smaller counselor to camper rations also allows for the counselors to better manage experiences.
Can my child bring their cell phone?
We ask that campers leave all electronics home. We have a full day of fun activities, and our goal is to allow each camper to “unplug” and enjoy new things!
Do you provide lunch?
YES! Thanks to the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) through the Community Food Bank of Greater Pittsburgh, lunch and snacks are provided for all campers.
Do you provide refunds?
Summer camp registrations are non-refundable as we base our staff schedules on our rosters.

What if my child is required to take medication or has allergies?
We have team leads in place who can assist your child with their medications. We also take into consideration any allergies your child may have when we have our snack times, and when we are participating in activities.
Do you take safety precautions?
Yes. We take special care to look out for the safety of our campers. All our counselors are CPR certified and follow the facilities emergency response plan.
