You will find pricing and details in the attached document. Campers may also bring a bag lunch to camp each day, as well as snacks to eat during their designated snack times.
Gear Up for Fun
KIDCAM campers don’t just have fun, they look good doing it! A KIDCAM camp T-shirt
must be worn to camp daily. T-shirts can be purchased for just $12 at our online Camp
Store. Our Camp Store is also brimming with bags, hats, and other apparel so you can
thoroughly outfit your child… or yourself!
Kidcam’s engaging weekly themes are action-packed with activities that promote fun, fitness, friendship, and creativity each week of camp.
Your mission this summer, if you choose to accept it, is to join KIDCAM for a summer of thrills, suspense and amazing adventures. This summer, camp will be swarming with young “operatives” as we delve into the secret world of spycraft. Each week, Commander M will drop off a case file with a new code word for our recruits to explore. In order to conduct their mission campers will enjoy themed challenges, games, activities, technology, food, crafts, music and movies. This exciting program will teach teamwork, reasoning, agility, and resourcefulness while delivering a summer of top secret fun. Mission Possible? More like Mission Awesome! Are you in?
Campers aged 5-13 will attend off-campus field trips each week on a licensed bus. * If you do not want your child to go off campus, you must request this in writing to the camp director.
3 & 4 year old campers will follow a separate schedule of on-campus activities.
Pick Up & Drop Off
With camper safety as the cornerstone of our program, the camp staff consists of certified teachers, outstanding college students and responsible and energetic teenagers. Once hired, the Kidcam staff goes through a rigorous training program in preparation for the first day of camp.
Before the campers make the first splash into the water, our Water Safety Instructor will evaluate the pool area and establish a swimming program based on safety. Our swimming program is supervised by certified life guards at all times. Swimmers will engage in pool games and competitions that are fun and age appropriate. Any camper who cannot swim will have access to the Splash Pad or may wear a Coast Guard approved life vest. 5+ aged campers will swim at Francos.
Our camps offer parents payment options including paying weekly or in advance for discounts. We accept, cash, check, money orders, and all major credit cards. With that being said, if you are paying your tuition weekly, it is imperative that your weekly tuition be paid no later than the Thursday prior to the week you are attending camp. If you pay by check, please make accommodations to visit camp the week prior between 8:30am-3:15pm to make your payment in person.
Any tuition not paid the Thursday prior to the week your camper is scheduled to attend will mean they are subject to lose their place in camp. Tuition will go up by $10 per week on Friday and the sibling discount will not be active. This policy is in place to ensure staffing.
If you have prepaid for your weeks, and/or the full summer, you can disregard this message. Your space at Kidcam is secured.

3 and 4 Year Old Program
Preschoolers can be happy campers, too! Kidcam’s early camper program provides a fun-filled summer camp experience to our younger campers in a safe, nurturing environment. Campers are supervised by qualified adult staff. The 3-4 year old campers follow a separate schedule of on-campus activities including water play, art, puppet shows, karate, dance, yoga, magic shows, spacewalks, and giant inflatables.
Helpful Tips – Label all clothing and belongings including camp shirts, shorts, hats, bathing suits, underwear, socks, towels, shoes, lunch-kits, and nap items. This will make it easier for your camper and the counselor to keep track of his/her things. – Have your camper wear his swim suit under his camper clothes when a water activity is scheduled in the morning. This will save time changing in and out of swimsuits and allow for more play time. – Send a note at the beginning of camp advising the counselor and office as to how your camper will be dismissed at the end of the day – car pool or after camp child care. – Send a labeled nap pad or mat, along with a pillow and any other comfort item (blanket, etc) for naptime each afternoon. Pads and pillows may be kept at camp during the week, but are sent home on Fridays to be washed.
What is Kidcam’s refund policy?
No refunds will be issued after May 23. Registration fees are non-refundable.
Tuition paid weekly is due no later than Monday morning at drop-off, and all weekly balances for after-care must be paid in full on Friday at the time of pick-up. A $10 charge will be incurred on any weeks transferred after May 9th. No refunds or cancellations after May 24th. Discounts only apply when payments are made online and prior to a child arriving at camp.
