We do our best to accommodate a busy schedule – you can sign up for the entire week or pick days and half-days that work for you at all three of our locations.

These camps are state licensed, so State Required Forms must be filled out every year in order to register. Once you submit forms please allow up to 48 hours for our staff to verify forms are correct. These are the same forms required for School’s Out Camps as well.

    Waiting list for Daily Camps?
    We are trying to fix a glitch within our CivicRec which will allow us to add a waiting list to daily and half day camps.

    It won’t let me register for a day. What can I do
    There are two reasons that you would not allow you to register; if state required forms were not approved or if the date is full.

    When will I know when spots open?
    Every Sunday afternoon spots will become available; this is dependent on our weekly registration. If we are low on weekly numbers, then we open more slots for daily and half day camps.

  • Refund Policy

    A 50% refund will be issued when cancelled 48 hours or more prior to the start of the camp. All check and credit card refunds will include a $5 surcharge. Refunds or credit will not be issued for missed days. If your child is sick, please call your camp location before 8:30 am. 100% Mountain Recreation Credit will be given for sick days if we receive a doctor’s note within 48 hours of the day(s) missed. Otherwise, refunds will not be given for sick days.

  • Late Pick-Up

    There will be a fee for late pick-up of your camper after. The fee is $1 per minute per child and is due at the time of late pick-up. Any overdue fees will result in the child(ren) not being accepted into camp until it has been paid. There will be no refunds for days missed due to lack of payment on a late fee.

  • Medications

    If your child needs to receive medication during camp, please complete the Medication Permission Form, available online at MountainRec.org or any Mountain Rec facility. This form must be signed by both a parent as well as a person with Prescriptive Authority (Medical Professional). All medicine must be kept in its original container and have a legible label stating the child’s name, directions for dosage, prescription number, name of medication, date filled and physician’s name. All unused medication will be returned to the parent/guardian at the end of each camp day, week or session. Medication must be given to the Camp Director or Lead Counselor at sign in. All medication, with exception of asthma inhalers and epinephrine pens, will be kept by the Camp Medication Administrator or locked in a secure area.

  • Vending Machines | Microwaves | Refrigerators

    Children are no longer allowed to get snacks from the vending machines. Please send them with 2 or more healthy snacks each day. Campers that bring money will not be able to use the vending machine. In addition, do not send food that needs the use of a refrigerator or microwave. We are required to stay within our ratios, we do not have enough staffing to be able to warm up campers foods.
