1. MORNING CHECK-IN & DISMISSAL TIMES:

Morning check-in begins at 8:50 a.m. Each day, please park your vehicle in the designated parking area and check in your child at our registration table.

Pick up/Dismissal will begin at 2:45 p.m. each day (approx. 11:55 a.m. for half-day campers).*

 *To ensure maximum safety, please allow our staff to begin our dismissal procedure before checking out your child from camp.*

On the last day of camp, camp will conclude at 2:00 p.m., followed by a brief Player Awards Ceremony.  All families are welcomed to attend!  The ceremony will conclude no later than 2:20 p.m. Please plan accordingly.

EXCEPTION:  Summer Spotlight Training Camp (ages 13-16) – Check-in begins each morning at 8:45 a.m., with lunch at approx. 11:00-11:30 a.m., followed by a 1:30 p.m. dismissal.  Camp also ends at the regularly scheduled time of 1:30 p.m. on the final camp day.

 

2. CAMPERS NEED JUST 2 THINGS EACH DAY:

1) Baseball/fielding glove 2) Ice-packed lunch

We like for campers to feel cool and relaxed, thus helping them listen, learn & perform their best!  While baseball pants are not required, campers do need to wear athletic attire (i.e. athletic shorts vs. cargo shorts).  As with any baseball-related event, a protective cup is suggested but not required.

 

3. CARPOOL IS COOL (AND WALKING HOME FROM CAMP)! PLEASE JUST LET US KNOW

If someone other than your child’s legal parent/guardian will pick up your child from camp (or your child will walk home from camp), WE MUST RECEIVE WRITTEN NOTIFICATION (HARD COPY, NOT ELECTRONIC), FROM A LISTED PARENT/GUARDIAN, PRIOR TO RELEASING YOUR CHILD.

The brief written notification must include:
a. Child’s name and name of the individual(s) who will be picking up your child in place of the listed parent/guardian on file
b. Date(s) and time(s) the pickup will occur
c. Best phone number in the event we must contact you
d. Signature of the listed parent/guardian on file

*TIME SAVINGS TIP!  Many provide us with a “blanket note”, one that lists, or “covers”, the dates of the entire camp week.

 

4. FOOD/TREE NUTS POLICY!

We kindly ask all parents to refrain from putting peanut butter or other items processed with peanuts or any type of tree nut in foods and drinks during our camp week.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation regarding the above safety issues and helping us keep all our campers safe!

WEATHER SCENARIOS:  THAT’S WHAT OUR PHONE BLAST SYSTEM IS FOR!!!

“Rain Delay” – “Heads Up!” – “See you Friday!”

1. “Rain Delay”: During the camp day, in the event of MODERATE/PASSING inclement weather, camp will engage in a “Rain Delay”, where campers and staff will retreat to the field dugouts for shelter.

2. “Heads Up”: In the event of sustained or significant inclement weather, please stay tuned to your phones, as we will contact you with a phone message. In the event of needing to cancel camp due to inclement weather, please be prepared to have your child picked up early from camp.

3. “See You Friday!”: In the event of inclement weather that occurs during the overnight or morning of camp, you will be contacted via our telephone broadcast system as to whether or not camp will remain on as scheduled or canceled no later than 8:00 a.m.

 

Above all, we plan for your child to have both a safe & awesome summer camp experience while in our care!
