Coastal Explorers is a summer day camp for middle-school-aged students.
Please check back in early 2021 for updated day camp information. This page remains up for your reference.
Important Notice: Read Prior to Camp Registration for 2020!
COVID-19 Registration & Schedule Changes: Due to scheduling concerns related to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, registration for this year has been delayed until May 4, 2020. Because of the uncertainty of the state mandates/protocols & guidelines, we will make allowances for the $40 non-refundable registration fee. If we need to make changes as we approach opening day for the day camps due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be allowed to refund all of the registration fees, except for a $5 processing fee. The first day of Coastal Explorers has been moved back to June 15-19. We are continuing to monitor the situation as it develops and will make adjustments as needed. Check back here for the latest information.
Past Due Balances from 2019: If you have an outstanding balance from the 2019 summer camp season, your child/camper is not eligible to register for camp this year until the account is paid in full. If you attempt to register your child without paying the 2019 balance in full, they will be removed from the 2020 camp register.
CampDoc Camper Profile Completion Requirement: ALL CampDoc camper profiles must be 100% complete within two (2) weeks following the registration of your camper(s). If you have not completed each camper's profile, your account will be deactivated for 2020 summer camp season and you will lose both your registration fee and the reservations you had for the weeks selected.
Camper Photo Requirement: Please add a photo of each camper to their profile. This will be helpful to us when implementing the electronic sign-in and sign-out procedures (new this year).
Everyone must have a debit/credit card on file in CampDoc. Please note that if payment is not received by the Friday before your child/camper's week of camp, we will charge your card for the week's balance due. If any card is declined there will be a $25.00 service fee added to your camper's account.
Online registration begins on May 4, 2020 and will continue until the last week of camp, August 7, 2020. All withdrawals and schedule changes must be made by Friday, May 29, 2020.
* There is a one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $40.00 for 2020, due at the time of registration.
Registration and payments are processed online only using CampDoc services. We have included links to documents below that will help you with questions and to prepare for this recent change in registering for camp.

This year's Open House will be conducted via video sent to all parents through CampDoc. This Open House video will cover all information/expectations in our Handbook. It will also cover all information/expectations in our Handbook and cover important protocols and procedures that will be followed based on local and state health mandates and recommendations. It is imperative we take a team approach and for everyone to work together to ensure a safe and enjoyable camp experience.
