-Camp begins at 8:30. You can drop your child(ren) off anytime between 8:10 and 8:30.
-Pickup is from 3:00 to 3:30pm. If you would like to sign up for aftercare from 3:30-5:30 for an additional $50 for the week, or $10 per day. Please let us know by email if you have not already signed up your child in registration.
Please note that this year we will have a new check-in/out process. There will be a table set at the entrance to camp where we will greet campers at the beginning of each day and take role as children enter the camp. This is a great time to meet our staff and communicate anything of significance that you feel would help us better deliver an exceptional and fun experience for your child's day.
During check-out the same table will be in place. Only those listed on registration forms will be able to check out children. Please call or email ahead of time if you wish to make arrangements outside of the approved pickup names provided on the registration. This includes days your child may ride home with the parents of another camper.
For those of you who have experienced RAW Camp before, you know to expect your children to come home with dirty clothes, scrapes and scuffs, great stories, exciting new knowledge of the outdoors, and the need for a good night's sleep. For those of you who are new, expect those things.
Each day you will need to send your child to camp with a packed lunch. We will provide an additional morning snack, but don't forget lunch. While allergies and dietary restrictions should have been indicated in the registration form, if you have any further concerns please feel free to bring them up when you drop off your child on the first day of camp. In addition I have included a packing list (below) of items your child might find useful at camp (please double check). Also, I want to stress, especially on rainy days, the clothes and shoes in which your child arrives will get dirty, so don't send them in their best outfits.
We will be outside most of the day rain or shine: under a pavilion, in the woods, in the pond, or in the game field. Please send your child in clothing appropriate for outdoor activity. We suggest on the average day to wear:
- Hiking/outdoor shoes (not flip flops though strapped sandals are fine).
- Pants or shorts (if bugs are an issue for your child, but it will most likely be shorts weather).
- A hat to keep off the sun (we will have sunscreen)
- Simple T-shirt.
Please, also bring and leave with us at the farm for the week:
- swimming suit and towel
- rain coat or poncho
- rain boots or old shoes that can get wet
- a full change of clothes, pants, shorts, underwear, socks, long and short sleeved shirt
- jacket or hoody (in case it is cold in the morning)
- water bottle
- insect repellent
Sunscreen is a must. We will have some sunscreen on hand, but having their own bottle will go a long way. We encourage campers at every activity transition to reapply, as well as before free swim. It can certainly help if you apply sunscreen before your child even arrives at camp.
Water bottles. We have a 10 gallon jug that gets refilled as soon as it empties. If campers have their own water bottle to keep on their person, it can help us keep them hydrated and happy to not rely on cups.
Extras if you wish: There will be some down-time after lunch for campers to hang-out and play or enjoy peace and quiet.
- Card Games
Upon check in on the first day, you can take your child and their belongings to drop them off on the front porch of the farmhouse.
Please no video games or cell phones. Children can leave cell phones in the farm house and check messages before pick-up. If you need to reach your child, please call either Weston or Kent. We will have our cell phones on and get service at the farm. Weston: 740-856-6299, Kent: 214-532-5503
