Our Winter Day Camp Program is designed for K - 5th graders. Our Winter Camp CIT Program is a specialized path for 6th - 9th graders. There's no better way to enjoy Winter Break!
Does Skylark move?
Nope! Skylark stays at the same locations all summer long. Check out our locations here!
Do campers have to come every week?
Nope! Only register for the weeks you need. But if you ask us... register for all 11 weeks to experience all the fun and surprises each week of camp includes.
Can my camper attend a partial week of camp?
We encourage campers to attend each full week they are registered to get the full Skylark experience. While this is not required, you can only register for full weeks. Missing days of a week does not reduce the cost of a registered week.
What should my camper wear to camp?
We recommend a T-shirt with athletic shorts or pants with close-toed shoes.
What should my camper bring to camp?
A water bottle, an extra change of clothes (in a ziplock or plastic bag), and a yummy lunch!
Can my child and their friend be in the same cabin?
Are Payment Plans available?
Who can pick up my camper?
For safety reasons, campers can only be picked up by individuals listed in the Authorized Pickup Form.
What if I need to drop my camper off late or pick them up early?
You may drop off your child late or pick them up early. Just make sure to give us a heads-up!
Am I registering my camper based on the grade they just finished or the grade they are entering?
For Summer Camp, campers are registered for the grade they are going into after camp ends.
Does my camper need to have health insurance?
Yes, providing health insurance is part of our registration process! However, non-traditional insurance options work, too!
Please contact our office at [email protected] with any questions about insurance.
Does my child need to bring their own lunch or snacks?
Yes, campers will need to bring their own lunch! We will provide a snack in the morning and afternoon.
Are you a peanut-free facility?
Skylark provides snacks that do not contain nuts as an ingredient and requests that parents/caregivers do not send food that contains nuts. However, we cannot guarantee the complete absence of peanut and tree nut products.
