1 & 2 Week Sessions Check In & Check Out:
Check-in for sessions 1-5 is on Sunday from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. If you arrive before 1:00pm, you will be asked to wait to at the camp entrance.
All campers forms must be completed and submitted prior to your camper’s arrival. If a camper arrives at camp without one (or more) of these forms, both the parent and camper will be instructed to report to the Administration Building prior to checking into their cabin.
When you enter Camp Tockwogh, you will be greeted by a staff member. If your camper is bringing medicine with them to camp, has any preexisting concerns or updates to health information, you will proceed directly to the Dining Hall to meet the Wellness Center staff. All creams, medicines, and vitamins must be turned in to the Wellness Team during check-in, in their original containers labeled with contents, directions for administering, and camper’s full name.
After meeting with our Wellness Team (if applicable), you will head to campers cabin. Your child’s counselor will be at the cabin to greet you and to introduce your child to the other campers. Please share any information that will assist the staff as we relate to your child. It is best to make your partings brief and pleasant so your child does not become upset about your departure.
As soon as the cabin group is complete, the orientation program will begin. The campers will begin with a tour of the camp, a health check, swim evaluation and waterfront orientation prior to the evening meal. The swim evaluation has campers demonstrate a forward-moving stroke and tread water for one minute in order to participate in aquatic activities. Campers who are not able to demonstrate these skills are required to take daily swimming instruction if they wish to participate in aquatic activities. The health check assesses any bumps, bruises, wounds, lice, rashes or athlete’s foot. Any health issues discovered during the check may affect your camper’s stay.
Check out for sessions 1-5 is on Friday from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
Please fill out the Alternate Leave form if you need to pick your child up before the scheduled time or if you wish to designate someone other than a parent to pick up your child. Please try to arrive before the checkout deadline. During checkout, medications will be available at the front gate. At the conclusion of each session, a short survey will be emailed to receive your immediate feedback. A more detailed survey will be emailed at the end of the summer to each family.
During checkout, you may secure your spot for the next summer by participating in the “Are You In” program! Not only do you already know you will be at Camp for the next summer, you will also receive a limited edition shirt! Registration cards will be available throughout the checkout process. Fill out an “Are You In” card and hand it in at the gate just before you leave. It is as easy as that. No worrying about getting your spot at Camp!
