For the safety of all children in our camp and in compliance with our licensure, campers are not allowed to attend camp without their health forms. If for some reason a child arrives with their forms on the first day of camp, we reserve the right to request 24 hours to process those forms and deny participation in camp for the first day.

What is the swimming program?
Pool safety is our first concern. Our staff are in and around each pool, carefully supervising all children at all times.
We use Connecticut Belair Pool.
The wading pool is used by our campers. Children who choose to take a swim test and demonstrate a high level of swimming skill are able to use the main pool under camp counselor and life guard supervision.
All children go to the pool most camp weeks.
What is the teacher/camper ratio?
For Acorns and Sprouts, it is 8 to 1,
For Poplars, it is 12 to 1.
On pool days and field trips, we take at least one extra staff person.
How does lunch and snack work? Is the camp nut free?
Campers bring their own nut free lunch. Half-day campers do not need lunch. We provide a morning and an eday snack, such as fruit, pretzels, cheese sticks, fruit popsicles or yogurt.
What are the staff qualifications?
Lead counselors are adults with experience in the educational field. On average, half of our staff are Evergreen School employees and over half of our staff return from previous summers. Most of our staff are first aid and CPR certified. Most of our staff have anaphylaxis and asthma training. All of our staff have background checks with the state of Maryland, the FBI and CPS.
What are the safety procedures?
Each classroom has a phone with an intercom system that connects to the main school office and camp office. We take walkie talkies and/or cell phones, a first aid kit, epipens and emergency information on each camper when we leave the building. Fire drills and evacuation drills are conducted throughout the summer session.
Does my child need to be potty trained?
Yes. Campers must be fully potty trained and independent to enroll.
What happens on July 4? Is camp closed?
Yes. There is no camp on July 4.
What are the age requirements?
All campers must be at least 3.5 years old by their first day of attendance according to County regulations.
Children who are close to six years old may participate in the Poplar program with approval of the Camp Director.
