Dates and Times - Drop Off and Pick Up CHANGES

Drop off and pick up will be at both Crown Park and the Camas Community Center. 


 For the Adventure Camp only, you can choose to drop off and pick up at either location.  If you are registered at the Community Center but would rather drop off and pick up at Crown Park or vice versa, you can do that easily, just communicate with the staff members.  


SCOUT HALL DROP OFF AND PICK UP

There is a small brown building named Scout Hall in Crown Park. This is where drop off and pick up will be each day. 


COMMUNITY CENTER DROP OFF AND PICK UP

The community center has a parking lot to park in and the entrance to camp will be at this location. There is a door on the opposite side of the building that stays locked throughout the day, so please enter through the doors where the parking lot is.  The registration table will be set up near the classroom. Once entering the building, turn left into the first hallway. You will see the registration table set up a few feet down the hall.


After Care - Parents can register for after care on site. Please keep in mind that if you are purchasing after care and are dropping off at the community center, all after care campers will be transported to Scout Hall in Crown Park at 4pm for after care.


Camp dates: June 24th-August 30th with no camp July 4th or July 5th.


The sign in and sign out procedures will be done by the camp staff. We are putting effort into becoming a paperless organization. We are in a learning phase so your patience is much appreciated.

Camp T-shirts are Required Everyday During Field Trip Week - the week of July 22nd.

Safety is our number one priority.  Campers are required to wear their SHAPE NW  Camp T-shirts everyday.  If you do not have a T-shirt and need to order one, you can pick one up at camp for $14.  Please note, campers who are not wearing their camp shirts will not be allowed to attend camp during field trip week. No exceptions.  If your camper has a shirt and forgets to wear it, simply purchase another T-shirt from the staff.

What to Pack Everyday

  • Lunch and two snacks
  • Water Bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Layers
  • On hot days, we may advise to bring swim wear for time in the sprinklers


We will inform you if other items are needed for certain events


Personal Belongings

We will offer personal time each day  and do not mind if campers bring their own things to camp for during those times. Each camper and parent assumes the risk of personal belongings in case of damage, loss or theft. SHAPE NW will not be responsible for any items brought to camp. If a personal belonging becomes a distraction or is deemed inappropriate, we may ask a camper to no longer bring their things.

Policies: Refund, Late Fees, Bullying

Our full refund policy can be found online. Refunds for weekly or daily rates must be requested ten days in advance, if you need to switch weeks, a $25 fee may be assessed. $39 registration fees are non-refundable. For the Unlimited Summer Fun option, once your child has attended their first day of camp, no refunds or pro-rations will not be allowed.


The scheduled camp hours are from 9am-4pm. For the courtesy of our coaches, please make it your best effort to be there by 4pm. Late fees may be assessed at the rate of $15 for the first 10 minutes and $1 fee for every minute thereafter. All late fees are paid directly to the coach that is on duty. If you are late, please be proactive in paying your fees and pay your coach that day. Checks can be made out directly to the coach on site.


We have adopted a strict no bullying policy. If for some reason a child has been involved in hitting or biting another camper, or has demonstrated blatant disrespect to others including our coaches, the parent will be notified and asked to pick their child up from camp. Parents will be asked to find an alternative option for their summer needs even after only a single incident depending on the severity of that event. Refunds are not given for kids who are dismissed from camp for bullying or disrespect. Parents, please keep in mind that many days, campers will be off in the wilderness or on a lake, so if your child has recently been disciplined for behavioral issues this may not be the right camp environment as we expect full cooperation for the safety of your kids as well as others.
