Q: How do you screen counselors?

Kindergarten & 1st
2nd & 3rd

6th – 8th

Q: What age children can attend Camptivity Day Camp?
A: Camptivity accepts children entering grades K – 8th.

Q: Where do I drop-off / pick-up my child?
A: Arrival
On the first day of camp please arrive early to allow extra time for check-in. When entering the gate at LMRA, please identify yourself as a Camptivity participant (on your first day, you will be provided with a sign to put on your car dash). Continue driving straight and pass the second guard to your left. Proceed on the road staying to the left. Cross the low water crossing and proceed up the hill. River Park Pavilion will be on your right. This is where all children need to be dropped off and picked up each day. You must bring your child into the building and sign in and out each day. This is a good time for us to meet you and communicate with you about your child and their experience at Camptivity.

Departure
Camptivity ends at 6PM and a fee of $1 per minute will apply for late pick-up. To ensure the safety of your child at all times, please list on the consent anyone other than yourself that will be picking up your child. They will also be required to show their driver’s license for identification.

Q: What should my child wear?
A: As some of our fun activities can be messy, we advise you to dress your child in comfortable and casual play clothes. Shoes are required (no sandals, except to wear to the pool and back). Please send proper outerwear as we spend time outdoors every day (weather permitting). A cap is recommended for the outdoors and ensure your child has sunscreen on before arriving each day. Send a raincoat if it is raining.

Q: What do you do about the heat?
A: Even though it is hot outside, camp is a great place to be! Campers easily adapt to being in the summer heat by staying hydrated, resting during the hottest part of the day and wearing cool cotton clothing. Camp staff are trained to recognize heat problems and take steps to minimize them. We plan quiet activities during the hottest part of the day and campers swim daily.

Q: How do I sign my child up for swim lessons?
A: Swim lessons are not part of the Camptivity program. The American Red Cross "Learn to Swim" program is offered through the LMRA Pool. Lessons are offered at 4PM, 5PM and 6PM. You will need to pick-up your child from Camptivity and take them to the lesson. Please call the LMRA pool manager at 817-777-2107 ext 101 to learn more.

Q: Can I buy another Camptivity t-shirt?
A: Each child will receive a Camptivity t-shirt the first week that he/she attends. If you would like to purchase an additional t-shirt, they will be on sale for $10. Campers must wear their t-shirt for all field trips.

Q: What if my child loses some items at camp?
A: We have a Lost & Found for just such a thing! The most important thing to do before you come to Camptivity is to label everything!! Secondly, do not send anything that is irreplaceable. Send older clothes, towels, etc., that if lost or misplaced, you can do without. Learning to be responsible for your own items is a big lesson at camp. Please check the Lost and Found before leaving camp on Fridays. All unclaimed items will be held at the Camp Fire Resource Center through September 30. Articles will not be held after this date.

Q: Do you offer scholarships?
A: No, we do not have scholarships available for Camptivity.

Q: Who is eligible for the Lockheed Martin discounted rate?
A: Current and retired employees of Lockheed Martin are eligible for the discounted rate.

Q: What is your payment policy?
A: Payment Policy - Each weekly fee is due no later than 6:00PM on the Wednesday prior to the week camper attends. Payments made after this time will have a $15 late charge added per child to the weekly fee. Automatic charges to credit cards must be set-up in advance and will be run on the Wednesday prior to the registered week.

Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: Cancellation Policy -
1. Cancellations are to be made by email or fax to the Camptivity Registrar by the Monday two weeks prior to the week being cancelled. All cancellations will be charged a $25 fee. No refunds will be made to those who cancel after this date.
2. For all “no shows” or for weeks not cancelled properly, the last week’s fee will be utilized to pay for the missed week, and all remaining weeks at Camptivity will be cancelled. Please contact the Camptivity Registrar to re-register for remaining weeks and pay appropriate fees.
