Should your child require medication to be administered, we will administer prescription medication only when the prescription is current, and the parents provide an accurate dosage spoon/syringe. Please do not leave any medication in a child's backpack. All medication must be provided to the camp director, in original packaging and labeled with your child's name (this includes inhalers, EpiPens, etc.).

The following information must be included: date, doctor's full name, practice, child's full name, specific dosage, and frequency of dosage.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD BRING TO CAMP?
Please ensure that all items are labeled with a permanent marker. Outside play is the core of our camp and it important that your child is dressed appropriately for outside play.
- Backpacks are encouraged and are stored in an accessible area for your child
- Refillable water bottle - This is a must
- Sunscreen - Please apply your camper with sunscreen in the AM before coming to camp. For safety/allergy purposes, we will not allow campers to share sunscreen. Campers will be required to put on their own sunscreen.
- Lunch/Snack are not provided. Snacks are available for purchase at our snack shop. Cash will NOT be allowed. Campers wishing to purchase snacks must have purchased a refillable gift card prior to start of camp.
- Change of clothing/towel/bathing suit - Again we are an outdoor summer camp facility and you may want to send a change of clothing for your child. We typically have one day per camp week where our campers participate in water activities and you will be notified of that day to send a towel and bathing suit if you wish.
- Athletic, closed-toed footwear only (sneakers) - If your child wears any other type of shoe to camp, they will not be allowed to participate in the daily activities.
- Toys and Electronics are not permitted at camp. Our camp is filled with active games, hands-on activities, exploration, and other counselor selected activities. Outside toys and electronics are not permitted at Camp Treehouse. Camp Treehouse is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
Camp Treehouse is an outdoor summer camp program. We provide a full program, even on rainy days. In the event of dangerous weather, campers will be moved indoors until it is safe to resume activities outdoors. Should a natural disaster occur, you will be notified in any changes of schedule in advance.
Camp Treehouse expects appropriate behavior from our campers. When the bad behavior is exhibited it is not accepted, we explain to the child what is expected of them and give them every opportunity to comply. If the behavior persists, the camper will be redirected and parents are notified verbally. Any behavior that causes safety or health concerns, will result in the child being picked up immediately and removal from camp may be warranted. Refunds are not given for campers who are not permitted to return.
Bullying is when one or more people exclude, tease, taunt, gossip, hit, kick, or put down another person with the intent to hurt another. Bullying happens when a person or group of people want to have power over another and use their power to get their way, at the expense of someone else. Bullying can also happen through cyberspace: through the use of e-mails, text messaging, instant messaging, and other less direct methods. This type of bullying can also lead to persons being hurt during or between the camp seasons and be especially hurtful when persons are targeted with meanness and exclusion. At Camp Treehouse, bullying is inexcusable, and we have a firm policy against all types of bullying. Our Camp philosophy is based on our mission statement which ensures that every camper has the opportunity to acquire skills, knowledge, friendships, and life experiences. We work together as a team to ensure that campers gain self-confidence, make new friends, and go home with great memories. Unfortunately, persons who are bullied may not have the same potential to get the most out of their camp experience. Our leadership addresses all incidents of bullying seriously and trains staff to promote communication with their staff and their campers so both staff and campers will be comfortable alerting us to any problems during their camp experience and between camp seasons. Every person has the right to expect to have the best possible experience at camp, and by working together as a team to identify and manage bullying, we can help ensure that all campers and staff have a great summer at Camp Treehouse.
Waivers are required for all campers to be signed during the registration process. Waivers will be checked prior to the start of your camp week and you will be notified if you have an unsigned waiver on file. Campers without waivers on file, prior to their camp week, will not be able to attend until one is completed.
