Day Camp Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose Saratoga Springs Day Camp?

Saratoga Springs is a wonderful place to spend your summer! The outdoor environment allows children to experience a new setting through hiking, swimming and creekwalking in the redwoods. Our fantastic day camp program and exciting, fun activities are deliberately designed to provide an educational situation where children can learn invaluable social and individual skills beyond those learned in the school classroom. Saratoga Springs is conveniently located just 2 miles west of downtown Saratoga.

Does my child need to wear their camp t-shirt everyday?

We would like to encourage you to have your child wear their Springs t-shirt everyday as it makes it much easier for our counselors to recognize the children in our daycamp. One t-shirt is given to you on the first day of camp and additional shirts are available for purchase.

Can my child attend camp with a friend?

Certainly. Simply fill-out the section of the registration form labeled “buddy request.” Your child may have more than one friend attending camp, but Saratoga Springs can only guarantee that campers be placed together in pairs. If this is a really important issue to your son or daughter, talk to the camp director in advance about making an exception.

How are children grouped?

Children are grouped with children of their own age. If you would like to be in the same group as a friend, just ask.

What will my children need to bring each day?

Campers need to be prepared to play outside. They should wear (or bring) sturdy shoes to get wet in the creek. They should bring sunscreen, a bathing suit, a towel and lunch everyday. Please be sure your child’s name is on everything he or she brings to camp. We recommend that no clothing or objects of value be brought to camp as we can not be responsible for misplaced items.

What is your cancellation policy?

If canceling 25 days or more prior to the first day of camp a $100 weekly fee will not be refunded but the remaining balance paid will be. If canceling 24 or less days prior to the first day of camp the entire camp fee will be forfeited. No shows will also forfeit their entire camp fee. If a camper needs to cancel, substitution of a sibling or friend, or switching weeks will be accepted as long as the cancellation notice is received 25 or more days prior to the first day of camp.

Any changes in 2014?

See notes in red on front of day camp page as we have made changes to the Friday pickup, lunch program, and cost of camp this year.
