  • Frequently Asked Questions:

     

    Feel free to contact Lisa Harper, if you have any questions or concerns about camp: HarperL@newegypt.us or 609-758-6800 ext. 3266.

    What are the dates and hours of the camp? Warrior Day Camp will operate Monday-Friday starting on Tuesday, July 5 through Friday, August 5, 2022, from 9:00 am – 3:30 pm, at the New Egypt Middle School. Extended hours are available in the morning from 7:00 am – 9:00 am and in the afternoon from 3:30 pm – 5:45 pm for an additional fee.

    What ages can attend camp? Warrior Day Camp will operate for students currently in preschool (minimum age 3 years old)-5th grade. Your child does not have to be attending the current preschool program but must meet the minimum age requirement and be fully-potty trained.

    Do I need to sign up for all 5 weeks? Each child must be enrolled in a minimum of 5 days over the entire period of summer camp. For any week that a student is enrolled in less than 3 days, a per diem rate of $70 will be charged.  

    My child did not attend preschool at GHWES or does not live in the district – can they attend? Yes.

    What do I need to pack for my child? Each day, campers should bring a nut-free lunch and snack, a towel for outside time, sunblock, comfortable shoes, and a filled reusable water bottle. We kindly ask that you LABEL everything. Younger children should pack a change of clothes, including undergarments and socks.

    Are there change fees?
    A $30.00 change fee will be applied for each camp registration change made to the original registration provided it is requested more than 14 days prior to that week of camp. Changes can only be made to increase the number of days of attendance (ex. 3 days to 5 days a week) or to add an additional week of camp. Please note that should a change be necessary, it is to be made directly with Lisa Harper at 609-758-6800 x3266, and not with the camp staff or counselors. Please review Warrior Day Camp Refund Policy.

    Do I have to pick the same days of the week for the 3 or 4 days a week plan?
    No. However, you do have to pick your days at the time of registration.

    Help! I’m registered for 3 days a week, but now I need to add a day after I submitted my registration forms. Can I drop in? A drop-in rate of $75 for a full day, not including before or aftercare, is charged and must be reserved in advance.

    Can I register for 4 days a week one week, but 5 days a week another week?  Yes, but your child needs to be enrolled in all 5 weeks of camp.

    My child is attending camp 5 days a week, however, I think I’m only going to need before care 3 days that week. What do I do? You have a choice to pay for the full 5 days that match your child’s camp days at the discounted rate or pay the $8 per morning session rate.

    What is the camp refund policy?

    Camp tuition will be refunded if:

    • The office is notified of unenrollment on or before June 1st. Tuition is refunded minus a 5% processing fee.
    • Camp tuition is NOT refundable due to illness, vacations, trip cancellation, a doctor or dentist appointment, missed days, schedule changes, or if they are unable to attend camp for any other reason.

    There are NO make-up days due to illness, vacations, vacation-mandated quarantine, or schedule changes.

    What are the change fees?

    Schedule Changes/Change Fee/Refund Policy:

    On or before Wednesday, June 1st changes will be accepted for the following reasons:

    • changes in the days of the week attending (ex. M, T, W, change to M, W, F)

    What are the Camp Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures?
    The staff will greet you at the front door of the New Egypt Middle School.  The staff will greet your family and follow the daily screening procedures. The staff will sign your child in on our sheets. Our staff will wear a mask at all times and we ask that you wear a mask during drop off and pick up as well. Please be patient as you wait your turn to get your child safely dropped off or picked up at camp. The pick-up process will be similar. You will be greeted by camp staff at the designated location and your child will be called down from their groups. The camp will post the designated drop-off and pick-up times. If you need to drop off or pick up doing our pre-camp or post-camp times, you will need to call the camp phone so our staff can meet you at the door.

    Is there a lunch menu?
    All children are required to bring a non-perishable lunch and snack that does not require reheating or cooking. Please do not send glass bottles or foods containing nut products. Please make sure all items are labeled with the child’s name.

    Are there any sports camps planned for this year?
    Yes, please see the camp information here. It will be posted by the athletic department when available.

    Can my child attend Warrior Day Camp following sports camps?
    Yes. Monday - Thursday following camp and Friday all day is available. See the reduced rates.
