What To Wear/Bring
- Campers should wear play clothes and tennis shoes.
- Campers should bring their own lunch every day.
We suggest that lunches be brought in coolers since
we are unable to provide refrigeration. We recommend
that sodas not be brought to camp. Sodas will not
be available for sale at camp. Campers may purchase
drinks at Albert-Oakland Family Aquatic Center on swim
days only. Frozen juice and kool-aid are excellent
drinks for lunches. Although water is always available
we recommend bringing two drinks.
- Campers should bring and wear sunscreen.
- Lunches, jackets, sunscreen, etc. should be marked
with the camper's name.
- No radios or electronic games/devices will be
allowed at camp.
- If camper is on medication, the parent/guardian
must request a medication form. NO MEDICATION
CAN BE ADMINISTERED WITHOUT THIS COMPLETED FORM.
- Campers should wear a swimsuit and bring a towel
on Mondays and Fridays.
- To maintain our proper counselor/camper ratio,
campers should not bring friends to camp who are
not enrolled in our program.
Late Arrival/Early Departure
Although our base camp is at Stephens Lake Park
, we frequently
visit other Columbia facilities. Swim days, rainy days
and field trips take part or all of our campers out
of Stephens Lake Park at various times. Because of
this, late arrivals and early departures of campers
are difficult to arrange. If a camper must be picked
up early the parent or guardian must send a WRITTEN
NOTE with the camper and must verbally confirm arrangements
with the child's counselor. We cannot adjust our schedule
or leave your child at the park alone. Please avoid
late arrivals/early departures. Your child will certainly
be missing out on something exciting!
Emergency Contact Numbers
If you need to contact the CAMP ADVENTURE
during camp hours call the Camp Office at 256-0135.
If no answer, call the Parks and Recreation office
at 874-7460. They will contact us and relay a message.
After hours call your child's counselor. A list of
counselor phone numbers will be sent home with your
child on the first day of camp. Occasionally, a bus
or weather problem may require getting information
to parents after the main office is closed. Messages
concerning late bus arrivals or schedule changes will
be left on our Recreation Hotline at 874-7663.
The staff of CAMP ADVENTURE
strives to not only
provide fun and learning experiences, but to also stress
respect for the environment and others (including safety).
All of our rules are designed around these two objectives.
If a camper repeatedly fails to follow the rules and
leadership of the CAMP ADVENTURE
camper is placed "under contract". This contract
is designed to help the camper further understand the
necessity of the rules. It also lists future consequences
which he/she will face if the problem continues. If
a camper is placed under contract you will receive
a copy to sign and return with the camper the next
day of camp. Contracts can aid campers in learning
that they are responsible for their own actions and
their consequences. We believe that you as a parent/guardian
will appreciate knowing of any problems that your child
Camp t-shirts are available for sale for $7.00. These
are quality weight t-shirts with the camp logo on the
front and the Parks and Recreation logo on the back.
Campers should bring check (payable to Parks and Recreation)
or cash to their counselor.
