  • Jr. Explorer Campers for our JK OR SK

  • NEW Mavericks, specially tailored for 9-13 yr olds.

You may check your online Family Registration page if you don’t have your confirmation email. Please take the time to read our Parent Handbook (PDF) which helps understand our policies, withdrawal options, late pick up fees, snacks, health procedures and much more.

What time should I drop off?

Our camp’s FREE extended morning care from 7am-9am.

Our main program runs from 9am-4pm (and children need to be in attendance BEFORE 9am on field trip days).

Our camps include FREE extended afternoon care from 4-6pm.

No need to sign up for extended care and campers will get a snack during morning and afternoon extended care. Please bring a nut and sesame seed free lunch and water bottle for two nutrition breaks during the main program.

Where to Drop off?

NEW Check Point Room: All parents/guardians are asked to visit our Checkpoint room during pick up and drop off. This is located off the WDHS East Parking Lot Entrance.
