The afternoon session drop off is at 12:25 pm at the playground when weather permits. On rainy days, please bring your child to the lobby.

Campers will be charged for time spent in Extended Care before 8:50 am and after 3:15 pm.
(Please note: ILC&CDS will be constructing a gymnasium over the summer in the field adjacent to the playground. This may cause weekly changes in procedure. Advanced notice will be provided.)

Extended Care Program

The Extended Care Program is an extra service Camp Immanuel provides for parents who need a full day of care, but still want their children to participate in a day camp. The morning program is available by appointment only, but can be used from 7:30 am until 8:50 am and features board games, arts and crafts and Legos®. The afternoon program is open from 3:15 pm until 6:00 pm and offers group games, recess, arts and crafts as well as snack. The fees are $8 for the first hour or any part of the first hour and $4 per subsequent half hour. Parents must ring the bell at the center doors of the building when picking up campers in the afternoon and will need to sign out their campers.

Transportation

No camper will be permitted to leave camp with anyone other than his or her parent unless camp administrators have been informed in writing. Please be sure to fill out the Transportation Release portion of the registration form.

What to Wear

Campers should wear weather-appropriate, casual summer clothing. Recommended clothing for campers includes shorts, shirts (with non-offensive logos) and sneakers. For safety reasons flip flops or open toed sandals may not be worn (there are wood chips on the playground.) Sunscreen is a must for all campers. Please include a bottle of sunscreen in your camper’s lunch box labeled with his or her name. We are not responsible for any lost personal items.

Camp Routines

In general, morning sessions will be more structured, and afternoon sessions will be more relaxed. Fridays will be an extra special day each week. Pizza and dessert will be served at lunchtime, followed by some outdoor fun that may or may not involve water! It is a good idea to pack a change of clothes for these days! Camp t-shirts will be handed out, and all campers will have the opportunity to autograph each other’s shirts.

Religion

As a Christian camp, religion is an integral part of the day at Camp Immanuel. Each morning and afternoon session will start in the Chapel with devotions led by our camp staff. During the day our campers will participate in prayer at snack and lunch time.

Food

Children attending a half day of camp should bring a snack and a water bottle. For our full-day campers, please send 2 snacks, one each for morning and afternoon, as well as lunch and a water bottle. All food should be in an insulated cooler with the camper’s name on it. Pizza will be served on Fridays during each session. If your child does not eat pizza, please provide him/her with lunch from home on Friday. Microwaves are not available.

Prohibited Items

An integral part of Camp Immanuel is making new friends and building relationships; therefore the use of hand-held games, electronics, tablets, cell phones and iPods are strictly prohibited.

Fees, Cancellations

There is a $50 non-refundable deposit that is charged per child at the time of registration. The remaining balance must be paid prior to the start of the registered session. Any cancellations made after the start of camp will incur a $25 fee plus the $50 non-refundable deposit.

Termination

Camp Immanuel reserves the right to remove any camper from our program for repeated behavioral issues. Refunds are at the discretion of the camp administrator.

Non-Discrimination Policy

Camp Immanuel does not discriminate on the basis of race, national origin, color, religion, political affiliation, age, gender or sexual orientation in any of its educational or enrichment programs, activities or admission policies.
