Age Appropriate Activities

To make participation fun, each camp provides activities that are designed for specific age categories. Campers must be the advertised age of the camp by the start of the program. For Summer Fun Centers, Summer Outdoor Adventure, Summer Sports Academy and TR Summer Fun Zone, campers must be six years old and entering the first grade.

Camp Staff

Camp staff are carefully screened and selected for their activity skills, level of enthusiasm, ability to work well with children, and good judgment. In addition, training is provided on safety procedures and expected conduct, as well as program planning and implementation. By state law, all staff undergo background checks. All camp directors are over 21 years of age.

Camper Behavior

Respecting others and the property of others is the key to having a great time at camp. To help create a positive camp atmosphere for everyone, campers and their parents must sign that they have read the Camper Code of Conduct.

Camper Security

For your camper's safety, only the individual(s) designated on the Camper Health and Information Form can pick up your camper. Additionally, the person completing the health form is the only one who can add or delete individuals with pick-up authority.

Food at Camp

Campers are expected to bring nonperishable peanut free food and drink for the entire day. Water is always available at camp. Any food allergies must be clearly identified on the Camper Health and Information Form to avoid issues. No refrigeration is available.

Inclement Weather

The safety of our participants and staff members is our number one priority. Outdoor camps will be held if there is light rain, however, in the event of unsafe weather or substantial rain, outdoor camps will be cancelled. In the event of sudden severe weather during the camp day, campers will need to be picked up quickly after you are notified. Camp will meet on code red days.

Pick-Up Policy

Designated individuals are expected to pick up campers promptly at the close of the program. A late fee of $10 per camper for each fifteen minutes (or portion of fifteen minutes) is assessed, regardless of the reason for being late.


If you would like your camper to walk home from camp, you must complete the "Release of Camper at the end of Program" section of the Camper Health and Information Form. Walkers will be released at the end of the camp and are not permitted to leave early. It is not advisable that campers under 10 walk home.

Safety First

Because safety is our first priority, our summer camp program operates under the stringent Day Camp Standards established by the Recreation Department and inspected by the State of Maryland Department of Health & Mental Hygiene. Camp staff are trained, and we meet CPR, First Aid and AED requirements.
